This curry was tasty. As per another comment I added chopped ginger and turmeric powder too. Try to use softer fish like Tilapia or salmon instead of shark or Sword fish(i used this)
also reduce the quantity of onions suggested in the ingredients. Shallots tasted excellent in this curry.
I WOULD DEFENITELY MAKE THIS AGAIN!

the recepie is good but there is one translation mistake. You have said “Kodam Puli” in your recipe teanslated as tamarind. If it is kodam Puli then the english translation is cocum

Yea I do agree with you.In fact I have been cooking this same thing since last 4 yrs and its good.My comments was just lil fun.
nevertheless I did made some point though-tamarind is not what “kudampuli” is.
KUdampuli is infact cocum and not tamarind

But the amazing thing abt this site is that someone is indeed monitoring whats going on.

!!!!!!!!!!!!Super!!!!!!!!. We made this recipe with Vala and Valathala (Kerala Cat Fish, Kozhencherrykarku Ariyam). I was tempted to add some ginger, but finally decided against it. This was really like the Shappu fish curry (Valathala Curry). Very Tasty.

We used to make the usual fish curry with coconut. This curry tastes the same, but feels a bit more healthy as it does not contain coconut!!!!
