INDIAN FISH CURRY
Whenever I have some fresh coconut at home,I know I got to make fish curry.Making fish curry is so quick and easy,it does not take much time at all and plus lucky me I got a fish market at walking distance from my home which gives me the best fresh produce.
250 grams boneless fish pieces
½ cup fresh grated coconut
3 dry red chillies
8 black pepper corns
1 ½ onion
1 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp coriander powder
1 tbsp fresh ginger garlic paste
½ tsp kashmiri red chilli powder
½ tsp tamarind
Pinch of sugar
3 tbsp chopped fresh coriander
Water for gravy
Marinate the cleaned fish pieces in salt,turmeric,cumin powder,coriander powder,ginger garlic paste and red chilli powder for atleast 30 mins.
Meanwhile,In a blender add the coconut,dry red chillies,peppercorns and ½ onion roughly chopped.
Blend till a smooth paste.
In a pan,heat coconut oil and add 1 finely chopped onion.Saute till it turns a little golden brown.
Then,add the finely chopped tomato and the blended paste.
Sauté till oil seperates from the mix.
Then,add tamarind paste,salt,sugar and water for gravy.
Simmer and then finally add the marinated fish.
Cover and cook for another 10 mins.

The curry will be thick in consistency.
