Fish is all time favourite for seafood lovers. It is healthy choice of non-vegan food too. Cause the RCI - Kerala cuisine is going on this month, decided to make my fish gravy in Kerala style. Again no Kerala cooking is complete without Coconut.. so this is the first time I added coconut to my fish gravy.
2 lb Raw, cleaned fish of your choice, scales removed.
2 Tbsp Oil
1/2 tsp Mustard seeds
1/2 tsp Fenu greek
4 Garlic pods
1 big size Onions,
4-5 Green Chillies
1 reem of Curry Leaves
1 tsp Ginger/garlic paste
2 Tbsp Tomatoe puree/Tomatoe Paste or 1 big Tomatoes Chopped
Salt to taste
1/2 Turmeric powder
1 tsp Coriander powder
1 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp Chilly powder
1 lemon size tamarind ball soaked in 2 cups of warm water and juice squeesed.
The traditionsl Kerala recipe calls for Kudum pulli.., since I did'nt have this I used the regular pulli
1/2 cup Coconut Milk
1 cup Grated Coconut ground into a smooth paste
1/4 cup coriander leaves.
1. Heat a skillet, add oil and then allow Mustard to splutter and add fenugreek seeds, stir for 10 sec and now add the chopped garlic. Stir till color changes lightly.
2. Add Onions, green chillies, curry leaves and cook until the onions turn translucent and fully cooked.
3. Add ginger garlic paste fry a little.
4. Add tomatoes or tomatoe puree, cook well
5. Add all the masala powders.
6.Now add the Pulli(Tamarind) juice and salt.
7.Check to see if enough salt and sour. Add some water if it is too soury.
8.Bring this boil and add the clean fish peices.
10.Once the fish is almost cooked add coconut milk and the ground coconut paste. Allow to boil for a minute or two.
11. Garnish with finely chopped coriander leaves
12. Remove from heat.
This can be served hot with the Chapati/Roti/Parota/ or simple plain rice.
