Kerala Simple Fish Curry

Ingredients

Fish - 1/2 kg
Kukum star(Kodam puli) - 2 - 3 pieces(cut into halves)
Small onion(Kunjulli) - 4 - 5 (quartered)
Garlic pods(big) - 2 nos
(finely chopped)
For grinding:-
Grated coconut - 1/2 cup
Small onions(Kunjulli) - 2 - 3 nos

DIRECTIONS

Step 1. Clean, wash and cut the fish, using a little salt and lime.
Step 2. Put it in water with a little kodam puli and keep it aside for 15 - 20 mins.
Step 3. Heat up a pan or a kadai.
Step 4. Add coconut, slit small onions and fenugreek seeds.
Step 5. When the coconut turns nice and brown, take the pan off the fire.
Step 6. Add chilly powder and coriander powder and sautT in the heat of the pan.
Step 7. Grind them finely with some water into a smooth paste.
Step 8. Add a little turmeric powder to the masala and mix well.
Step 9. Heat oil in the same pan.
Step 10. Splutter mustard seeds.
Step 11. Add curry leaves, small onions, green chillies, garlic and ginger and saute well.
Step 12. When onions turn brown, add the ground masala along with a little water.
Step 13. Add the fish along with kodam puli into the masala.
Step 14. Cover and cook.
Step 15. :- Tilt the pan occasionally so that the curry does not stick to the bottom of the pan.
Step 16. Tips:-
:- For mackerels, do not use fenugreek. For pomfret and such fish, use just 2 - 3 grains of fenugreek. For sardines, add 4 - 6 grains of fenugreek.
:- Use 1 tsp of coriander powder for sardines and more for other fish.
:- Use Kashmiri chilly powder. It gives a nice red colour to the curry.
:- Instead of frying the second set of ingredients(Mustard, Curry leaves, Button onions, Green chillies, Garlic, Ginger), you can add everything except the mustard to the fish along with the first masala, without frying it in oil. This especially tastes good for sardines with tapioca.
:- Another variation is that you can avoid coconut in the first masala. Just sautT the onions and the fenugreek seeds a little and turn off the fire. Add the chilly and coriander powder and sautT in the heat of the pan. Add enough water as you would need for the gravy to it and grind the above in a mixer. Add to the fish and cook.
