How To Make Kerala Fish Curry
- Dear friends, here we start.For our kerala fish curry, first of all wash our fish well. And then keep it aside.
- Next procedure is to prepare the gravy for that. First take the grated coconut and put into the blender. Make it more fine by granting it without water. It simply means the coconut should be more smaller and fine.
- Heat the frying pan, no need to add oil into the pan. Just we have to fry the coconut.
- Until it reaches brown colour. Please be careful while cooking, don’t forget to make your flame at very lowest .Why because it may cause to burn the coconut. so that we have to be very patient .
- Now time add some ingredients, such as fenugreek powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder and red chilli powder into the pan. Keep on frying. Please refer the second picture you will get an idea, how long you have to fry. Yes of course 10-15 mins .
- After that take a blender and put it . Grind it without water.
- It become more powdered and will be thick .
- After that add water into it, mix well . Now our gravy is ready .keep it aside. Here we have covered another step.
- Now take a clay pot , heat it. Add oil and chopped onion , cook until it becomes transparent in colour.
- After we can add our chopped tomato into the pot , again cook it for 5-10 mins .
- So here we can add our prepared gravy into the clay pot, following with salt as per the taste.
- After that add pepper powder into the gravy and mix well.
- Now we can add brindleberry (Kudampulli) into the gravy . Cover it ,let it cook for 10-15 mins
- After that we can add our cleaned fishes into the gravy and again cover and cook for 15-20 mins at the lowest flame. why i am mentioning the flame should be at lowest because our pieces of fish wont get break and mixed while cooking.
- At that period of time our gravy becomes thick and absorbed in the fish pieces.After that we can add our curry leaves into the clay pot.
- So here we can serve our delicious “Kerala Fish Curry”.
