I am a good cook -- and here's a Fish Curry to prove it!

Once someone told me that u can call yourself a good cook if u can get a fish curry right... and last week I did :) That was my first attempt at making a fish curry. I usually make fish fry or grilled fish at home. This turned out yummy... I was so happy.

So here is the recipe. I found it on the net and then modified it a little according to our tastebuds.

Ingredients

Fish cut into slices (I used rohu)
1/2 kg
Oil
2 tsps
Mustard seeds
1 tbsp
Cumin seeds
2 tbsps
Dry red chillies
10
Paanch phoran seeds*
2 tsps
Curry leaves
10-12
Large onion ground to a paste
1
Ginger paste
1 tbsp
Large tomatoes cut into cubes
2
Turmeric powder
1 tsp
Tamarind soaked in hot water
handful of 1/2 cup
Hot water
2 cups
Salt
to taste
Chopped coriander to garnish

Steps

  1. Heat a heavy-bottomed pan on a medium flame and roast the dry red chillies, mustard and cumin seeds. Cool and grind along with tomatoes.
  2. Heat the oil in a wide, heavy-bottomed pan and add the curry leaves. When they stop spluttering, add the onion paste and fry till light brown.
  3. Add the ginger and fry for a minute.
  4. Add the tomato and spice paste and fry till the oil begins to separate from the masala.
  5. Add 2 cups of hot water and the tamarind pulp to this masala and stir to mix well.
  6. Bring the gravy to a boil and then simmer till u get desired consistency. My hubby likes thick gravy in fish dishes so I boiled it for about 7 minutes or so.
  7. Gently add the fish to this gravy and cook till done.
  8. Garnish with chopped coriander and serve hot with plain boiled rice.

Unfortunately I forgot to click the snaps... but had a blast eating this... hope u guys enjoy it too.
