Kerala is one of the top producers of fish and coconut in India. Naturally fish and coconut plays a major role in malayalees food culture. Here is the recipe of a Kerala fish curry with coconut. Hope you will like it.

Ingredients

  • Fish (any) – ½ kg
  • Chilli powder (മുളകുപൊടി) – 1 Table spoon
  • Turmeric powder (മഞ്ഞള്‍പൊടി) – 1 Pinch
  • Tamarind (പുളി) – Lemon size
  • Ginger (ഇഞ്ചി) – 1 Inch piece
  • Shallot (ചെറിയ ഉള്ളി) – 3 Nos
  • Tomato (തക്കാളി) – 1 No (optional)
  • Curry leaves (കറിവേപ്പില) – 1 Sprig
  • Grated coconut (തേങ്ങ ചിരണ്ടിയത്) – 1½ Cup
  • Water (വെള്ളം) – 3½ Cup
  • Coconut Oil (വെളിച്ചെണ്ണ) – 1 Table Spoon
  • Salt (ഉപ്പ്) – To taste

Method

  1. Clean the fish and keep aside.
  2. Dissolve tamarind in 3 cup of water. Remove the seeds and any pieces that have not dissolved with the water.
  3. Slice tomato (optional) and chop ginger.
  4. Grind grated coconut and shallots well into a fine paste by adding ½ cup of water.
  5. Cook fish pieces (about 10 – 15 minutes) in a covered vessel along with tamarind dissolved water, chilli powder, turmeric powder, tomato (optional), ginger, curry leaves and salt. (When it starts boiling, turn the flame to low).
  6. When it is done, add the ground paste and combine it. Taste for salt and wait till it boils.
  7. Remove from the flame and drizzle 1 table spoon coconut oil over the prepared fish curry.
  8. Let the curry remains in the cooking pan for minimum 30 minutes, allowing all the spices to steep into the fish.

Tips

If you don’t have tamarind, use kukum star (kudam puli) as an alternative. But I recommend to use tamarind for this coconut based fish curry.

Myself, Shaan Geo basically a Software Engineer started my career in IT Industry. I have had a passion for food and cooking from an early age. This habit made me keep an eye out for the new variants of food and the different cuisines where ever I go. According to me cooking is an equal-opportunity talent and I find that anybody can cook. It is not limited by the age, profession, caste, colour or creed of a person. What is needed is the love for cooking. For me passion for cooking does not stop in the kitchen, when I travel, I continue to be inspired by eating in some of the best restaurants around the world.

    Hi Ann, It is pleasure to know that the recipes worked out well for you. I will definitely do a prawns recipe when the time permits. Thank you very much for the feedback.

Hi Shaan, just curious my mom used to add coriander powder to fish curry, so we don’t need that ingredient. I haven’t tried, but will try today.

    Hi Shobana, Thanks for the comment. In traditional Kerala fish curries, we usually won’t use coriander powder. But while preparing Fish Masala kind of dishes we make use of it. Hope it comes out well for you.
