Once someone had told me that u can call yourself a good cook if u can get a fish curry right… and last week I did 🙂 That was my first attempt of a making a fish curry… I usually make fish fry or grilled fish at home and it turned out yummy… I was so happy…

so here is the recipe I found some recpie on the net and then modified it a little according to our taste buds…

1 /2 kg fish cut into slices (I used rohu)
2 tsp oil
1 tbsp mustard seeds
2 tbsps cumin seeds
10 dry red chillies
2 tsp paanch phoran seeds*
10-12 curry leaves
1 large onion ground to a paste
1 tbsp ginger paste
2 large tomatoes cut into cubes
1 tsp turmeric powder
small handful of tamarind soaked in 1/2 cup of hot water
2 cups hot water
Salt to taste
Chopped coriander to garnish

1. Heat a heavy-bottomed pan on a medium flame and roast the dry red chillies, mustard and cumin seeds Cool and grind along with tomatoes
2. Heat the oil in a wide heavy-bottomed pan and add the curry leaves, When they stop spluttering, add the onion paste and fry till light brown.
3. Add the ginger and fry for 2 minutes
4. Add the tomato and spice paste and fry till the oil begins to separate from the masala
5. Add 2 cups of hot water and the tamarind pulp to this masala and stir to mix well.
6. Bring the gravy to a boil and then simmer till u get desired consistency hubby likes thick gravy in fish so i boiled it for about 7 minutes or so
7. Gently add the fish to this gravy and cook till done.
8. Garnish with chopped coriander and serve hot with plain boiled rice

Unfortunately I forgot to click the snaps… but had a blast eating this… hope u guys enjoy it too
