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.
