In my quest to find new ways to cook fish, Here is one more. In the goan fish curry, the main ingredient is the coconut. It adds a creamy and nutty flavor for the whole dish.
How to cook Goan Fish curry...
Ingredients:
Fresh Fish (like Pompfret, King Fish, etc)
Red Chilly Powder – quarter tsp (for marinating the fish)
Turmeric powder – quarter tsp ( for marinating the fish )
Fresh Grated Coconut – one cup
Red Chilly Powder – half tsp.
(depends on how hot you want the curry. If you like hot food, you may increase the quantity)
Turmeric powder – half tsp.
Tamarind – half inch
Onion – one (small)
Dried coriander seeds – 1 tsp
Pepper – quarter tsp
Oil – 1 tsp
Salt – to taste
Method:
Clean the fish, wash and apply quarter tsp red chilly powder, quarter tsp turmeric powder, salt and keep aside.Cut half of the onion finely.
Grind the coconut, red chilly powder, turmeric powder, tamarind, half of the onion, coriander seeds, pepper into a fine paste. Make sure you dont add much water.
In a vessel, put oil and add the cut onion. When onion turn translucent, add the marinated fish and let cook with onion for 1 min.(Be careful when cooking fish first, coz fish gets cooked fast, and in your haste you might break the pieces, and once the dish is made, you will find no fish pieces, all of it would have dissolves in the dish. Well, it happened :p so am warning you people ) Then add the ground coconut mixture. Add little water (quantity of water depends on how thick you want the curry. But the curry taste good when it is a little thick).
Add salt to taste. Remove from fire when curry boils.
This will go splendidly well with rice.
