Kerala Style Fish Curry

My husband's Malayali friend gave us some Kerala spice powders. So I decided to try this. I have done my way in available ingredients. So here is Kerala fish curry recipe.

  • Fish Steak- 5
  • Eastern Fish Masala - 3 tbsp
  • Mustard seeds- 1 tsp
  • Curry leaves- 1 string
  • Green chilies, slit- 4 to 5
  • Ginger, grated- 1 tsp
  • Garlic- 6
  • Onion, sliced- 1 med
  • Turmeric powder – ½ tsp
  • Kokam extract (aagal)- 6 tsp (or kokam pettals-5)
  • Oil- 4 tbsp
  • Coriander leaves, finely chopped- 2 tbsp
  • Salt- to taste
  • Water- 1 ½ to 2 cups

  • Marinate fish steaks with turmeric and salt.
  • Crush coarsely garlic and ginger together.
  • Heat oil in a pan (I used earthen ware) and add mustard seeds, when it crackles add curry leaves, chilies, onion and crushed ginger-garlic. 
  • Saute till onion becomes pink. Add the masala powder and saute for a while.
  • Add water, mix well and boil it.
  • When curry will start boiling and become littlebit thicker (I think this masala contains black gram powder), add fish pieces. 
  • Add kokam extract, chopped coriander and mix carefully. Make sure that fish pieces do not get broken in the process.
  • Cover the pan with S.S. plate. Pour some water on plate.
  • Cook the curry for 15-20 minutes on low flame. 
  • Serve hot with rice or appam.

  • Don't go on curry's bright red colour. It's not spicy hot. Because this masala contains Kashmiri red chili powder.
  • I made this curry for lunch. But I noticed that it tasted better in the dinner. 
  • I followed recipe which printed on packet. But I think if we add some coconut milk in this curry, it will taste more better. I like as it is also. ;)
  • This masala contains Kashmiri red chili, coriander seeds, mustard seeds, fenugreek, dry ginger and garlic. So you can imagine the taste of masala and can be prepared at home.
