Fish Chettinad

As the name suggests this is a very famous non vegetarian dish from Chettinad . This fiery and hot fish curry tastes superb with plain hot rice or dosas . It can be prepared with pomfret or rawas or surmai .
 I made this curry with surmai and we enjoyed it with dosas.







Ingredients :

7 to 8 pieces........................cleaned and cut fish
1 ....................................onion chopped
1 ...................................tomato chopped
1tbsp................................ginger garlic paste
1 tsp...............................mustard seeds
8 to 10............................curry leaves chopped
salt






For the Gravy :

5 to 6 .....................dry red chillies
2 tsp........................coriander seeds
1 tsp.........................cumin seeds
1/2 tsp.........................badishep (fennel seeds)
1/2 tsp.......................pepper seeds
1/4 tsp........................fenugreek (methi seeds)
2 tbsp.......................fresh grated coconut
1 .............................small onion cut into slices
5 to 6 ......................curry leaves
1/2 lemon sized..............tamarind
oil








Method :

Heat the kadai and put  1 tbsp oil add all the ingredients given in For the Gravy one by one.
Roast them till they give out a nice aroma and grind into a fine paste .
In the same kadhai heat oil , add mustard seeds, curry leaves and onions.
When onions are golden add ginger garlic paste and turmeric powder.
Now add the ground paste and stir fry in oil till the raw smell goes.
Add fish pieces and mix gently taking care not to break them.
Add chilly powder, salt and let the curry boil for 5 to 7 minutes.
Don't overcook.
Serve this finger licking curry with plain rice of with dosas or rotis.
