Ingredients of Kerala Fish Curry

Directions to make Kerala Fish Curry in steps


  • Wash the fish and marinate them with turmeric and salt and keep aside for 30 minutes.
  • Now make a smooth paste with onion, ginger, garlic, 2 green chilies & grated coconut.
  • Now heat oil in a non-stick pan and fry the fish lightly ( in original recipe fish should not be fried, but I don't like raw fish in may gravy) .
  • In the same oil add mustard and fenugreek seeds, fry them till they splatter. Now add curry leaves and the onion,ginger, garlic, green chili & grated coconut paste. Add some salt and fry till the paste changes color.
  • When it starts changing color add turmeric, both red chili powder, coriander powder and little water to the pan and fry till masala leaves oil.
  • When the masala starts leaving oil add the gambooge soaked water and additional 1 cup water and bring the gravy to a nice boil.
  • When the gravy starts boiling add the fried fish, green chilies and some curry leaves.
  • After 10 minutes of boiling off the oven and serve the fish curry with steamed rice.
