Amazing Fish Curry

Fish Curry

(adapted from Sinfully Spicy )

This is an amazing North Indian fish curry and I’m addicted to it. The best South Indian fish curry has to be my mom’s cos serve with fried french beans with coconut on the side and I’m in heaven. I wanted a different fish curry recipe and this recipe was amazing. My son even commented on it the minute I came home from work ( I made it before I left in the morning and I believe the flavours were well steeped by lunch time!) 🙂 Anyway Let’s get on with the recipe.

  • 4 black Pomfret or Mackerel steaks
  • 1 tsp turmeric ( to rub the fish with)
  • 1 cup finely diced red onions
  • 4 tbsp canola oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tbsp grated ginger
  • 2 tomatoes chopped fine
  • 1.5 tsp coriander powder
  • 1 tbsp chilli powder ( adjust to your taste)
  • 1 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tbsp kasuri methi
  • 1/2 tsp amchoor powder ( dry mango powder or substitute with a 1.5 tsp of lemon juice)
  • 1.5 cup of water
  • salt to taste
  • 2 tbsp chopped coriander
Firstly rub the fish steaks with the turmeric and leave it in the fridge until needed.
Get a wide heavy bottomed pan, add the oil and heat it on medium fire. Now add the chopped onions, saute till just browning then add chopped garlic.Saute for about 1-2 minutes then lower heat and add chopped tomatoes, grated ginger, turmeric, coriander and chilli powder. Saute on low medium heat till the oil starts separating on the sides. This should take about 10-12 minutes and add some water if it”s drying up too fast. This is the most important part because the flavours will start to melt into each other now , so don’t rush this process! 🙂
Add the marinated fish steaks , together with the kasuri methi and amchoor powder.
Mix the masala gently and make sure fish well coated , again a little water to loosen the masala and gently simmer on low-medium heat for 10 minutes.Check for salt and add as needed. Once it’s done, add the chopped coriander leaves and let sit for 40 min- 1 hr and wallah an amazing fish curry!
Serve with white jasmine rice.
