This is a very delicious fish curry from the southern region of Kerala. This recipe I got from a cookery show.
I am trying to stick to the original recipe since it’s a recipe inherited from ancestors.
This is a bit different from the usual fish curry.
Try this one with any fish that’s available to you and enjoy this lip smacking curry!!
King fish-1/2 kg
Turmeric powder-1/2 tsp
Dry red chili-10 no’s
Coriander seeds-1/4 cup
Method of preparation
Clean the fish.
In a heavy bottom vessel, pour 1 cup of water(or the water enough to cover the fish). Boil the water with Kokum (U must use 10-12 no’s), curry leaves, salt and turmeric powder.
When it starts boiling add fish pieces and cook on medium fire.
After the fish is fully cooked, you can remove the Kokum from the gravy.
Dry roast coconut on a dry pan.
When its half done, add coriander seeds and dry red chili (8-10 no's) into this coconut. Simmer for 15 minutes or until fried well.Keep stirring occasionally.
Grind these into fine paste.
Heat coconut oil in a big vessel.
Crackle mustard seeds, fenugreek seeds and then add 2 red chilies.
Now add chopped onion/shallots.
Mix in ginger chopped.
Add some salt.
Now add the coconut paste and the gravy in which the fish was cooked.
Let it boil for 3 minutes now add in fish pieces and excess water if needed.
Check the salt and add some more curry leaves to this.
Just bring it to a boil.
Very special traditional Kerala fish curry is ready!!!!!!!
