Fish curry

This is MIL's trademark fish curry.The original recipe is from her MIL...:).My husband loves it so much and i try harder everytime to make it just like MIL.After almost 6 years, finally i am able to make it upto that mark...


King fish - 1-2lbs
Small pearl onion - 5
Tamarind - 1 small lime size(soaked in 1 cup of water)
Red chillies - 8
Pepper corns - 1tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2tsp
Whole Dania - 1tsp
Garlic-1 clove
Coconut Oil - 2tsp
Curry leaves - a few
Mustard seeds - 1tsp
Coconut - 1 cup (shredded)


Clean the fish pieces with little bit of turmeric.Grind coconut,1 pearl onion,curry leaves,dania,turmeric powder,garlic,jeera into a smooth paste.In a heavy bottomed pan,heat the grouded paste with the tamarind water.Boil this till the raw smell goes and the curry becomes little thicker.Add the fish pieces at this point and don't stir it.Boil it till the fish is cooked full.In a pan, heat coconut oil and fry mustard seeds ,curry leaves and sliced onions.Pour this into the fish curry.Serve hot with rice.

You know, I was never into Fish but last month I bought Fish and cooked with it. Seeing all the Kerala fish dishes in blogs tempted me. This one really looks delicious! I am sure it tastes yummy and crispy!:)
