மீன் கறி / Tangy Fish Curry without Coconut



Sometimes when you are up against the stress, making a fish curry seams like pulling a mountain. Its all because of a simple coconut. You have to do lots of work to that, starting from crack opening the coconut,grate it, grind it, Oh man that is tons of work. So when you are in those period of time try out this simple tangy fish curry which uses only onions and tomatoes.





This curry has simple spices and it is cooked in coconut oil, which gives lots of flavour to it. One more tip is you can make the curry a day ahead, because it taste so good the next day, the flavours will develop and gets into the fish. So try this out and tell me how it turned out.


Preparation time: 5 mins

Salt to taste
Chilli Powder - 2 tsp or to taste

Pepper Powder - 1 tsp

For Seasoning:
Coconut Oil - 1 tblspn
Mustard Seeds / Kaduku - 1 tsp
Fenugreek Seeds / Methi - 1/2 tsp
Dry Red Chilli - 1

Method:

Once it gets hot. Add the seasoning ingredients and let them sizzle for a min or so.

Add in onions and saute for 5 mins till they turn translucent and slightly golden.

Now add in the spice powders along with salt and let them bloom in the oil for 30 sec.

This simple yet delicious meal cooked with coconut oil is definitely yummy! I love cooking fish in coconut milk but since it is quite tedious, I'll probably try this tip. Thanks for sharing!

I made this yesterday (I bought tamarind paste and coconut oil specifically so I could try out more of your recipes!). And I got a boneless fish fillet this time :) The curry was quite spicy, but not as tangy as I thought it would be. I used 3 tbsp of tamarind pulp, but I really wouldn't mind adding more. Also: this curry comes with a lot of sauce (as shown in the pictures), so you need a lot of rice to soak it all up!
