Good recipe..varatharacha curry means some roasted coconut or roasted spices. Instead of kudampuli try tamarind.

The meaning of varutharacha is something you fry and blend as a mixture or so. In this case nothing like coconut or some coriander or red chilly is mixed. I do not find it as a varutharacha meen curry. It is a simple curry.
