Fish curry Trivandrum style featuring drumsticks | Kukskitchen


Being born and brought up in the capital city, I have a few favourites from trivandrum. This particualr recipe became close to my heart during my pre-degree days when my dear friend S used to bring in this fish curry made by her umma. I didn't know the recipe then, but made sure I knew it later on.

Method


-  Grind (2) adding enough water.

-  In a pan, add the fish pieces, ground coconut mixture, (3), (4), salt and water. Mix well and cover with a lid.

- Bring to a boil and let it boil for a few minutes.

- Now simmer and cook until done. This would take as long as 10 minutes, but would depend on the type of fish.

- During the cooking process  make sure not to mix the fish pieces too much to avoid mushing them. To mix gentle swirl ur pan from side to side every 2-3 minutes.

- Add 2 tsp coconut oil and a few curry leaves as garnish.

- Serve hot with plain rice and yogurt.

Cheers
