Kerala Fish Molly Recipe (Fish Cooked in Coconut Milk)

fish moly

Fish Moly is very simple and easy coconut based curry. Its a very light curry, very close to the recipe of stew. In this curry the main ingredients are fish and coconut milk. Its a low spiced curry, so the flavour of the fish dominates the taste of curry. So fresh fish are usually used to make fish moly/fish stew. This curry is one of my kids favourite curry, because it is so creamy and mild. I also love this curry along with rice. This dish usually prepare  with green chillies and pepper powder , so its light yellow colour makes it so attractive as well. The fish used for this curry can range anything from kingfish to any fish that is fleshy. Its a mild dish best served with Appam & rice.
