Fish Molly


Fish Molly

Kerala style fish molly is a mild and delicious curry. It is a traditional dish,very popular in Kerala which is made on special occasions and is served with appam and palappam. Here fish is slowly cooked in thick and creamy coconut sauce. Its quick and simple recipe and goes well with appam,pathiri, rotis and even bread.

Ingredients
For the marinade
Fish -1 lb ( I used King fish)
Pepper powder- 3/4 tsp
Turmeric powder- 1/2 tsp
Lemon juice- 1 tsp
Oil for frying

( I used coconut oil)

For the sauce
Shallots finely chopped- 10
Onion thinly sliced- 1/2
Tomato- 1
Ginger garlic paste- 1 1/2 tsp
Green chilly- 4-5
Turmeric powder- 1/3 tsp
Cinnamon stick-2 pieces

Cloves-3-4
Fennel seeds- a pinch
Whole pepper- 5-6
Thick coconut milk- 3/4 cup
Thin coconut milk- 1 cup
Curry leaves- 2 springs



Cut fish into medium sized pieces and marinate with the ingredients listed and keep aside for twenty minutes. Heat oil in a pan and shallow fry and keep aside.
In the same oil add mustard seeds and when it crackles add,cloves,cinnamon, fennel seeds and cardamon and slightly roast till there is a nice aroma. add curry leaves,green chilly onion shallots and salt fry till they change color. Add ginger garlic paste,turmeric and fry for one more minute. Now add thin coconut milk, the fried fish and chopped tomatoes. Cover and cook till the sauce thickens and the fish becomes soft. Now add the thick coconut and simmer for one more minute. Serve warm.


Try this..
Hope you will all enjoy..
