Who doesn’t love fish curry and rice.
It would be last thing I eat before I die. Fish curry is the easiest of all and those beginners can try it.
Usually fish curry is of two type one with coconut and another with Tamarind.
Below are the steps and ingredients. For the masala I have used an ready-made one and my mom’s masala powder. You can choose anything. The Tamarind in the main player here.
Things required :
1.Clean the fish ,add salt and turmeric and wash well. Don’t wash in running water you may damage the flesh.It is better to rub some amount of masala and let it marinate.
2.Onions 2 for 1 kg of fish( approx 7-8 pieces of fish).Slice them.
4.Tamarind paste or Tamarind as required(use more if tomato is not sour)
5. Masala for curry.
6.Curry leaves and coriander leaves
7.Garlic 5-6 pods.
9. Jeera seeds.
10.Dry Chilli or for more spice Green chilli.
11.Salt to taste
If you prefer coconut, then remove the tamarind and add coconut in the same process.
Step 1: Heat the pan and add oil. Once heat add Mustard seeds, Curry leaves,jeera and Dry chilli.
Step 2. Add the garlic and once it is cooked add Onion.
Step 3: Add the tomatoes and Masala.
Step 5:Pour water as required. Be mindful even the Fish has water in it also onion and tomato will let out water while cooking.
Step 6: Once when this mixture comes to boil ,slowly drop the Fish. If you happen to have the Fish head add it for the curry it gives a nice taste.(you can very well not eat it , but allow it to be in the curry , it gives a awesome flavor).
Step 7: Fish cooks soon , allow it to boil and then Simmer.
Garnish with coriander and serve with hot steamed rice.
