  • Heat coconut oil in a pan and add in the mustard seeds and methi/ fenugreek seeds. Let the mustard seeds splutter. Add in the ginger, green chillies and and curry leaves. Sautee briefly for 10 seconds.
  • Add in the shallots and fry till they are soft.
  • Take a small cup and add in the masala powders to the cup. Turmeric powder, red chilli powder and coriander powder. Add ¼ cup of water and make a paste.
  • Add the paste, tomato and the salt to the pan. Sautee for a couple of minutes. Add in the mangoes and a cup of water. Let it come to a boil.
  • Grind the coconut with about half a cup of water to a smooth fine paste. Add it to the pan.
  • Add in drumsticks and let the curry simmer for 10-12 minutes on medium flame. Add fish pieces and simmer till cooked. About 5 minutes or so. Don’t overcook the fish.
  • Serve hot immediately but I like the best after it has sat for a day or atleast a couple of hours
