Coconut Fish Curry Recipe
Make spice paste. This is actually a delicious combination of shallots, garlic, ginger, fennel seeds, ground turmeric, ground coriander and red chili powder. Add a little water and process to a very smooth paste.
With tamarind, you have two options here. You can either use tamarind paste or tamarind block soaked in water. While tamarind paste is easily available from your local grocery store, you can find blocks of tamarind at Indian grocery stores.
To make the coconut fish curry, start with sauteing onions, green chilies and curry leaves. When onions are browned, fry the tomatoes. You don’t need to wait until the tomatoes turn mushy. Add the ground paste alongside fish, tamarind, coconut milk and water. Don’t forget to season. You can also fresh coconut in this dish. Just make sure you grind it with the spice paste.
The final tempering is so important to bring in maximum flavor. All you need to do is fry mustard seeds, shallots, red chilies and curry leaves until lightly browned. Add this to the curry and stir.
This coconut fish curry pairs beautifully with Indian meals including rice and naan.
