Meen Muringakka Curry/Fish Drumstick Curry


Meen Muringakka Curry/Fish Drumstick Curry

This curry is very popular in South Kerala especially Trivandrum. It is a spicy fish curry which has the unique and inviting flavor of drumsticks/muringakka.This is my grandmothers recipe and  she makes the best meen muringakka curry ever. This is a very healthy recipe, its low in fat and  drumstick is an exceptionally nutritious vegetable. Try this you will surely love it...

Ingredients
Fish - 1 lb
Drumsticks pieces- 12- 15
Chilly- 3
Pearl onion- 8-10
Ginger - 1inch thick
Coconut grated- 3/4 cup
Whole red chilly- 6-8 
(add according to tolerance)
Turmeric powder- 1/2 tsp
Coriander seeds- 2 tbs
Fenugreek seeds- 1/3 tsp
Tamarind- one lemon size ball
mustard seeds- 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves- a few

First dry roast red chilly, coriander seeds and fenugreek seeds. Make a fine paste of the dry roasted ingredients along with ginger, coconut and tamarind. Keep this mixture aside. Clean and cut fish.
Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds and curry leaves. When they splutter add chopped shallots, green chilly and salt and saute till onion changes color. Add the ground paste and tamarind water and adjust consistency by adding enough water ( valan puli /tamarind can be substituted by kudampuli).
Bring this to a boil and slide in the fish pieces and muringakka/drumsticks. Cover and cook in high heat for about a minute and then reduce and cook till the fish is done and the gravy thicken. Finally drizzle one tsp of fresh coconut oil and add a few curry leaves. Serve with rice..
