If you think cooking fish is too difficult, then this recipe can help you. Fish-tomato roast is an easy to prepare spicy fish recipe. For me it was a successful experiment towards a variety of fish recipes. It can be served with rice, tapioca (kappa), chappathi and even with puttu.


  • Fish (മീന്‍) – 250 gm (Boneless preferred)
  • Tomato (തക്കാളി) – 2 Nos
  • Onion (സവോള) – 1 No
  • Ginger (ഇഞ്ചി) – 1 Inch piece
  • Garlic (വെളുത്തുള്ളി) – 6 Cloves
  • Curry leaves (കറിവേപ്പില) – 1 Sprig
  • Kashmiri Chilli powder (കാശ്മീരി മുളകുപൊടി) – 1 Table spoon
  • Turmeric powder (മഞ്ഞള്‍പൊടി) – 1 Pinch
  • Mustard seeds (കടുക്) – ½ Tea Spoon
  • Cooking oil (എണ്ണ) – 3 Table spoon
  • Salt (ഉപ്പ്) – To taste


  1. Clean the fish and cut it into small pieces. (½ inch size)
  2. Chop tomatoes, onion, ginger and garlic and keep aside.
  3. Heat 3 table spoon of cooking oil in a non-stick frying pan and put mustard seeds. When it begins to splutter reduce the flame and add garlic, onion, ginger and salt one by one and saute it.
  4. When the onions turns golden brown put chilli and turmeric powders and stir it for 1 minute.
  5. Add chopped tomatoes, fish and curry leaves into it. Combine well and cook it covered in a medium flame till done. (about 10 minutes)
  6. Open the lid and cook it for another 1-2 minutes to make it dry. Stir it occasionally. Taste for salt.
  7. Remove from the flame and transfer to the serving dish.

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 the 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.
