Kerala Recipe - Fish curry with coconut / mathi curry Kannur style

I love to eat fish curry and rice whenever I get it. Here is a simple fish curry recipe which can be prepared with any curry fish. Here I have used fresh sardines coz that's my favorite :)


Fresh Sardines - 10
Turmeric powder - 1 tsp
Chilli powder - 2 tsp
Green Chilli - 2
Dry red chilli - 2
Ginger - 1 inch piece
Onion - 1
Tomato - 1
Tamarind - 1 lemon size
Salt - As required
Curry leaves - 1 spring

Clean and marinate the sardines with turmeric powder, chilli powder, salt and keep it aside. Take the thick tamarind juice and mix with the marinated fish.

Slice the onions, green chilli, and chop ginger and add it to the marinated fish. I missed to take the photograph here.

Now grate 1/2 coconut and grind it in a mixi along with tomato, 2 dry red chillies to a fine paste.

Pour this ground mixture to the marinated fish and add curry leaves also. Add water if the gravy is too thick. Allow the curry to boil for 5 minutes.

Once the gravy is cooked well and thickened switch off the flame and add 1 tsp coconut oil/refined oil to the curry.

Serve hot with rice, chapathi or puttu. Enjoy the taste.

You can add tomato directly to the fish without grinding also.
Do not add onion if you are making curry with ayla/mackerel.
