    Directions
    to make Spicy Kerala Fish Curry
    :
  • 1)Clean the fish, drain and keep aside.
  • 2)Mix together the red chilly powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder, and fenugreek powder with little water, to make a smooth paste.
  • 3)Heat oil in a pan.
  • 4)Add mustard seeds and when they start spluttering, add fenugreek seeds followed by the sliced onions, ginger, garlic, tomatoes, curry leaves and the paste and fry till the oil separates.
  • :- u could use a cup of small onions instead of big onions.
  • 5)Add a tsp of vinegar if desired. ( optional)
  • 6)Add tamarind extract and check the level of sourness.
  • 7)When the water starts boiling, add the fish pieces and salt.
  • 8)Add enough water to cover the pieces.
  • 9)Cook on a gentle heat.
  • 10)When the pieces are almost cooked, increase the heat and cook till the gravy thickens and the oil is visible.
  • :- Serve hot with rice.
  • hey all...here r some tips to improve the taste of ur fish curry.....
  • 1)If u really think the curry is too hot, reduce chilli/ or add two tea spoon of coconut milk.
  • 2)When u make fish or meat curries, try to make the curry one day before, so that the curry will absorb all that masala and taste better the next day.
  • 3)If u like the smell of coriander leaves in ur curries, u can add some in this fish curry too.
  • 4)Last but not the least, Kukum star (Kudampuli) is a very good substitute for tamarind.

    Dear, It is really great. Being in Nigeria, i almost forgot the taste of india. But thanks to you for the receipe....i once again started enjoying the kerala style foods. Only thing we do not get the type of fish that we get in kerala. I made the curry with the fish that is available here in nigeria. Regards Manoj

    Hey the curry turned out to be delicious.We used sardines but didnt add the coconut milk and also used much less chilli, but it was spicy and tasty nonetheless. Anyone looking for a good fish curry can try out this one.

    Wow Maneka...this is an excellent fish curry. Typical Kerala style. I added one tsp less of chilly powder though and also a couple of tbsps of coconut milk at the end just to flavor it a notch although its totally flavorful even without it. Plus its super simple ! Yummm.......its gonna sit untouched till tomorrow coz fish curry tastes best a day after its made right ? Thx for this one, Maneka.

    1) U can use any fish for this recipe…but I found king fish more tastier. 2)If u r using sardines, increase pepper powder and add a couple of teaspoon of coconut milk at the end… 3) Soak the coccum ( koambuli ) with a pinch of salt in half cup of water for 15 minutes. The hot water and salt help to soak the kodambuli… add this mixture to the curry…u don’t have to squeeze it… kodambuli is much stronger than tamarind,so u should be careful. A maximum of two pieces kodambuli is enough for this recipe.

    looking at all the comments we tried this recipe, but though we eat very hot foods, it was a bit too much, i think the red chilli that we get here compared to India differs greatly in quality, any way we had to add coconut milk to it to ease up a little, but except for that it was VERY GOOD, and we would try this again fo couse half the chilli powder. Thanks
