Red Hot Fish Curry

A spicy red fish curry that will bowl you over. The recipe was sent by our friend Nadeem who is from Goa. I have made a few changes to suit our taste. It is the simplest fish curry I've ever made and tastes great.


Fish pieces - 500 gms
Fish Tamarind/Kodampuli - 2
Onion - 1, finely chopped
Oil - 1 tbsp
Curry leaves - a sprig(optional)

For the paste
Chilly powder - 2 tsp
Kashmiri Chilly powder or Paprika (Optional. I added it for the colour)
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Garlic - 6 to 8 cloves
Jeera/Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Methi/Fenugreek powder - 1/2 tsp
Salt to taste

1. Grind all the ingredients for the paste with a little water in a mixer.
2. Heat oil in a pan and saute the onions. When they start browning, add the ground paste and add enough water and salt for the gravy. Bring to boil and simmer for few minutes.
3. Add the fish pieces and curry leaves and cover and cook till fish is done.

Serve with rice or neer dosa or kappa(tapioca).
