Karimeen Curry/Meen Palu Curry



Karimeen Curry/Meen Palu Curry (Cochin Fish Curry)

Delicious and spicy fish curry is a must for lunch in every Malayali home .This is nadan fish curry made with pearl spot or karimeen which is popular in Kerala. The fish is simmered with spices and coconut milk and is flavorful and delicious.Different regions have their own variations of fish curry ranging  from the fiery red curry or  mulaku curry to very mild curries like fish molee. Fish curry is made milder by adding shredded coconut either as a fine paste or as coconut milk. Try this curry. You will surely love this as it tastes wonderful with rice or appam.
