1. Fish – 1/2 kg, cut into medium pieces (I used salmon)
2. Grated coconut – 1.5 cups
Turmeric powder – 1/2 tsp
Chilly powder – 1 tbsp (You can use kashmiri chilly powder to make it less spicy)
Coriander powder – 1/2 tsp (optional)
Pearl onions – 3
Tamarind – Small goose-berry sized
3. Fenugreek powder – 1/4 tsp
4. Green chilies – 2, slit
Drumstick – 1, cut into 2.5 inch pieces and slit
Curry leaves – 1 sprig
6. Coconut oil – 1 tbsp
7. Salt – To taste
1. Grind the grated coconut along with turmeric powder, chilly powder, coriander powder, pearl onions and tamarind to a very fine paste adding enough water.
2. In a claypot / manchatti, add the fish pieces, ground coconut mixture, fenugreek powder, slit green chilies, drumstick pieces, curry leaves, salt and 1.5 – 2 cups of water. Mix well and cover with a lid. Bring to a boil and cook for a few minutes. Bring down the flame to medium-low and cook until done. Add 1 – 1.5 tbsp coconut oil and a few curry leaves. Set aside for 15 minutes. Serve with rice and a thoran/mezhukkupuratti.

My absolute favorite fish curry… LOVE IT
Looks so good. Never used drumsticks in fish recipes. Sounds interesting
Very different from wht i make. Definitely going to try this out.
looks yummy…if i’m using Tamarind pulp how many tbsp?
I guess you’ll need to use only around 1.5 – 2 tsp tamarind extract for this recipe..
I am a great fan of your blog and was following it since you started yummy o yummy.I have tried most of your dishes and turned out great especially your kerala prawns curry and Trivandrum style fish curry.My 4 year old loved the prawns curry i made following your recipe.You are doing a great job.Wishing you all the best.
Thanks a bunch for trying out my recipes and for letting me know! 🙂 Hope you continue to enjoy the recipes here..
I love the taste..yummmmmm
” … and cook until done.” What time would you recommend?
Around 15 minutes..
Hi this is a new version of fish curry for me, i have a doubt . Which type tamarind is used in grinding here?is it kudampuli or valampuli? And anyway to prep the tamarind or just put it in?
Its valampuli..remove its seeds and grind along with the other ingredients
Maya … question from a non-God’s Own Country native: what are Kudampuli and Valampuli? Pictures or links to them would be helpful.
THAT IS A VERY EASY FISH CURRY. TRIED AND CAME OUT EXACTLY LIKE MY MOTHER’S RECIPE. THANKS A TON.
You’re welcome! Glad that you enjoyed it..
