1. Clean and wash the fish.

 

2. Combine grated coconut, turmeric powder, chilly powder, coriander powder, fenugreek powder, sliced pearl onions, green chilies, ginger, curry leaves and salt in a claypot/manchatti. Crush everything together with your fingers(njeruduka) and add the kudampuli and fish pieces. Add around 3/4 cup water, cover with the lid and cook until all the water is used up, at medium heat and the fish is cooked. It will take only about 15 mts. Be careful while stirring it, this fish will break down easily. Finally add 2 – 3 tsp coconut oil. Mix well and switch off. This goes well with rice or even with idli/dosa.
