Today im sharing a recipe I saw on a cooking show and it turned out yummy, I found the flavours very different from the fish curries I have eaten so I just had to share it.
Try serving this fish curry with idlis, dosas or even rice roti's for a change, im sure your family will love it.
Oohh and ofcourse you still can make it in your regular pan instead of a clay pot. It will still be great I promise you.
2 soaked dried red chili
4/5 garlic and ginger crushed
1/2 cup grated coconut
2 tsp Kashmiri red chili powder
2 coriqnder powder
1 tsp fennel seeds
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
few curry leaf
few fenugreek seeds
2/3 chopped shallots
1/2 tsp red chili powder
1 tbs tamrind paste
salt to taste
Start by adding oil to a pan and add in crushed ginger/ garlic,chopped onion and the spices, cook for 2/3 min and then add in the tomato. Cook till the onion n tomato is soft and mushy.
Now grind the coconut along with the soaked red chili and the onion tomato paste. You will get a bright red paste.
In the same pan you cooked the onion add in a little oil and the ground paste, salt and cook for 2/3 min, by doing this the paste gets a more flavourful. Add in 2 cups water and wait for a mild boil.
Add in the fish pieces, tamrind paste and cover for a few min.
Cook the fish pieces on a medium heat and then check for seasoning. You can add more water or keep the gravy thick.
Once the gravy is done add in oil into another pan and make a tempering, make sure you fry the shallots till brown.
Pour the tempering into the curry and cover with the lid for 10 min.
Delicious clay pot fish curry is done ! Serve warm with rice and enjoy !
