Meen Kulambu / Fish Curry

    Hi Friends,

    Happy to blog after a quite long time.I am not well for the past few days so I couldn’t update my space.Thanks for all for your continuous support.

    And coming to the recipe this is a typical South Indian spicy fish curry/Meen kulambu .Check out my Sprats Curry /  Choodai meen kulambu here and in this curry I have used tomato and garlic for extra flavour and this is a big hit at my home.Normally the next day Fish curry tastes the best. And  sure all fish lovers will adore its taste.Try this and enjoy with your family.Here comes the step by step preparation…

    Add the onion and fry till colour change ( will take 3-4 mins).

     

     

    Now add the grated coconut and fry for 2 more mins (keep in medium flame to avoid burning).

     

     

    Switch off the flame and add the corriander powder and mix well.

     

     

    Let this mixture comes to room temperature and grind in to a fine paste with enough water.

     

     

    Preparation of Gravy

     

    Apply a little chilli powder and salt in the fish and mix well and marinate for 10-15 mins

    Grab your ingredients.Soak tamarind in hot water for 10 mins and extract the juice.

    Add turmeric powder, chilli powder and required salt and give a good mix.

     

     

    Allow it to boil for 5 mins and  then reduce the flame to medium and cook till the masala flavour goes off and the oil oozes out from the sides of the pan (will take 20-25 mins app).

    100_3611

     

    Serve this fish kulambu with hot steamed rice or with Idlis / Dosas.

     

     

    Notes :

  • I used Sea bass fish/Koduvai meen .You can use any type of fish for making this yummy kulambu/Curry.

  • Add enough water while boiling as it thickens gradually.

  • You can add green chillies and 1 tsp ginger garlic paste while tempering.This too enhances the flavour.

  • Fish cooks soon.So 3-5 mins is enough .If you cook for a long time then it will get dissolved.

  • The tanginess depends on the tamarind you are using so just taste and adjust up to your taste.
