Simple Fish curry

This is a very simple fish curry preparation that i got from my mom. The taste of this dish doubles, if we prepare this in an earthern pot. If you don't have one, no worries, you can make it in a kadai also.

The fish used for this curry is either small fish or thin, small pieces of any fish.

Simple Fish Curry


10 - 15 fish fillets (small pieces) or any small fish
1/2 tsp Turmeric powder
1 tsp Red chilli powder
1 cup Coconut (freshly grated)
2 tbsp Tamrind pulp
Salt to taste
10 - 15 shallots (finely sliced)
3 Green chilli (slit)
1 1/2 inch Ginger (finely chopped)
Water as required
1 - 2 tbsp Coconut oil
10 - 15 Curry leaves

For Marination

1 tsp Red chilli powder
1/2 tsp Turmeric powder
Salt to taste



  • Wash fish and marinate with salt, turmeric powder and red chilli powder. Keep this aside.
  • Grind coconut and turmeric powder into a smooth paste by adding water.
  • Put this into an earthern pot or kadai. Add red chilli powder and mix throughly.
  • Let it simmer for sometime. Now add the tamrind pulp and mix well. Add water as required.
  • Allow it to cook for 5 minutes.
  • Now add the sliced shallots, green chilli and ginger. Let it simmer till the shallots are soft and nicely cooked.
  • Adjust the gravy by adding water. The gravy should not be too thick or too thin.
  • Now add the marinated fish into the simmering gravy.
  • Let it simmer again till the fish is cooked nicely.
  • Once the fish is cooked, take off from heat and pour coconut oil and put curry leaves. Mix well.
  • Serve it hot with steamed rice.
