Fish Curry/Spicy Tomato Gravy

Dear friends,
Taking a short break..moving to our new destination, Ohio. Will loose some of your yummy posts.....hope to see you all soon.

Fish curry with a spicy and tangy sauce is a great combo with rice. In this curry I have not used coconut and tamarind which is the important ingredient of Kerala fish curry. But tomatoes gave this curry a unique flavor and taste

Fish- 1/2kg
Tomato puree- 1 cup
Onion- 1 large
Ginger- 2 inch 
Garlic- 2 cloves
Green chilly -2
Chilly powder- 1 tsp
Turmeric powder- 1/2 tsp
Coriander powder- 3/4 tsp
Pepper powder - 1/2 tsp
Fenugreek powder - 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves
coriander leaves
Salt to taste
Lemon juice- 1 tsp
Oil for frying

Marinate fish with half of chilly powder, turmeric powder, salt and lemon juice for ten minutes and fry them for a few seconds. Remove from oil before it gets browned up. This is just to prevent it from breaking while cooking.
Finely chop onions, green chillies, garlic and ginger( or you can use a kitchen chopper or food processor). Saute this along with curry leaves till golden brown in the same pan used for frying the fish. Add tomato puree and let it get cooked for two to three minutes or till the oil separates. Add chilly powder, turmeric, coriander, pepper and fenugreek and saute a another minute. Add one and one half cup of warm water and when it comes to a boil slide in the fried fish pieces and close lid. Cook in medium heat for seven to eight minutes. Finely add coriander leaves and simmer for a few second. Serve warm with rice.

Try this..
Hope you will all enjoy.

  28. Looks nice. How do you prepare the tomato puree?

    1. Thanks for stopping by,making tomato puree is easy
      To make puree put tomatoes into boiling water. Switch off the flame,cover and let it rest for about fine minutes. Take out and put in cold water. At this stage it is easy to peel skin and blend it using a mixer or you can just make paste by cutting tomatoes and put into food processor and finely grind it till the seeds and skin is incorporated into the puree.The first will give you a smooth gravy.
      hope you will try the recipe,have a great day..

  29. Best Recipe. I loved it. Thanks for sharing the wonderful recipe with us. Spices Online
