Spicy Kerala fish curry

Kerala fish curry is the traditional fish curry made in Kerala. Usually this spicy fish curry is made with tamarind in earthenware bowl.

It is said that fish curry made with tamarind stays fresh longer. This curry tastes better the next day since the fish absorbs the spices and the tangy taste of tamarind.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Makes: 3 - 4 servings

5 - 6 piece of fish
5 shallots
1.5 inch ginger
3-4 garlic cloves
1 green chilly
3 sprigs of curry leaves
1 tsp mustard seed
1/2 tsp fenugreek seed
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
2 tsp chilly powder
2 tsp tamarind paste
1.5 cup water
3 tbsp coconut oil
Salt as required

Wash the fish 3 - 4 times. Any fish can be used. I used Kerala sardine fish.

Chop 3 shallots, 2 garlic cloves, chilly and half of ginger.

Crush the remaining shallots, garlic and ginger.

Heat oil in the earthenware bowl or use any pan. Add the fenugreek seeds and let them crackle. Then add the mustard seeds and let them crackle.

When the crackling stops, add the shallots, crushed ginger and garlic into the oil. Saute until it starts to turn golden brown. Then add 1 sprig of curry leaves.

Now reduce the flame to low. Add the turmeric powder and chilly powder. Mix well to combine. Make sure not to burn the mix or else the curry will have a bitter taste.

Now add the tamarind paste along with water and salt to the spice mix. Stir well and let it boil on a medium flame.

When the water starts to boil, lower the heat and add the chopped chilly.

Then add the fish and a sprig of curry leaves into the bowl. Now gently swirl the pan so that everything will be mixed well.

Cover and cook for 10 - 15 minutes or until the fish is cooked. Remove from heat. Let it sit covered for 1 minute.

Let it cool for 1 - 2 hours so that the gravy will become a little thick and the fish will absorb the spices and the tangy taste.

Serve with hot rice or boiled tapioca.
