In this dish, salmon or your favorite fish is cooked in a delectable tangy spicy sauce. While the fish is simmering on the stovetop, boil some rice to soak up all the deliciousness from the sauce. I also like to fry a few pappadums that will be a delightful addition to this meal.

How To Make Indian Fish Curry
Start with making the sauce. Sauté some onions followed by ginger and garlic. I highly recommend using fresh ginger and garlic in this recipe as they add another level of flavor to this dish. Once the ginger is fragrant, stir in a few spices. I like to add ground cumin, turmeric, coriander and red chili powder.
Fry the spices for a few seconds, and then add tomato paste and fresh chopped tomatoes. Give it a quick stir fry and wait until the tomatoes are soft and mushy.
The tang in this Indian fish curry comes from tamarind. You can use either tamarind paste or dried tamarind soaked in water. Either way, the delicious touch of tamarind is so essential to level up the flavors.
Now it’s time to add the fish pieces alongside water. Stir very gently. Cover with a lid and cook until nearly done. In the final step of making this Indian fish curry recipe, you’ll need to stir in the coconut milk and coriander (cilantro) leaves. Simmer this for another 2 minutes.
Pair this Indian fish curry with steamed rice or naan and pappadums! Absolutely delicious!
