Fish Curry

Fish curry - My Ammi Abba's Favorite :) A Not-so-favorite dish of mine- Simply because i don't eat fish! :p But as far as i can cook and serve others, am happy ;) I now know that my in-laws love fish curry too, so this is one dish i had to learn ! So here i am :) It is preferable to cook this curry in a clay pot. It tastes much better - That's what everybody says :)

Fish - Bangda ( Mackerel) - 3 big cut into 3 pieces each, If Sardines use12 fishes
Coconut - 1
Roasted Whole Red chilli - 8
Turmeric / Haldi powder - 1/4 tsp
Roasted Whole Coriander - 1/2 tsp
Onion - 1
Garlic - 4 cloves
Tamarind - small ball
Roasted Cumin seeds/Zeera - 1/4 tsp
Roasted Fenugreek seeds/ Methi - 1/4 tsp
Salt to taste
Tomato - 1
Slit Green chilli - 4
Ginger - 1''
Curry or Coriander Leaves - 2 tsp

1. Grind coconut along with Turmeric powder, Coriander seeds and whole red chilli.

2. Once its getting into a fine paste, add tamarind, Zeera, Methi, garlic, onion and grind till smooth paste.

3. Remove the batter/masala adding water to form a not-thick-not-thin consistency and transfer it into a bowl.

4. Mix the batter real well and add salt and allow it to boil with the lid closed. Make sure you keep checking it in intervals so that it does not spill over.

5. Once it starts boiling, add Green chillies, ginger, tomato and onion and give it a boil.

OPTIONAL : Add chopped Ladies finger or Brinjal at this stage.

6. After the first boil, add the fish pieces and allow it to boil till the fish is cooked. Depending upon the type of fish, the cooking time would vary. Please see to it that the gravy is not too thick nor too thin.

7. Once its done, add in curry leaves or coriander leaves.

Enjoy with rice , dosa along with a veggie side dish! :)
