Pomfret Curry ( Karwari Style )


Pomfret is one of the tastiest fishes and can be prepared in many different ways. Today I am posting the recipe of  karwari pomfret curry which I regularly make at home. It is made with minimum ingredients and tastes yummy with hot rice.






Ingredients :


2 medium ................Pomfrets ( can use any other fish too )
2 ............................onions ( chopped)
2 cups.......................fresh grated coconut
4 to 5 ........................dry red chillies
2 ..............................green chillies ( slit into two)
1/2"...........................ginger ( grated)
1 tsp.........................coriander seeds
1/2 tsp......................pepper seeds
1 tsp........................turmeric powder
2 to 3 .....................dry kokam pieces ( for sourness)
2 tbsp + 1 tsp ..........coconut oil
2 tbsp.......................chopped coriander leaves
salt


Method :


Clean the fish and scrap its surface to remove the scales.

Slice it and clean the insides and wash thoroughly.

Now in a pan add 1 tsp coconut oil and roast coriander seeds, pepper and dry red chillies.

Grind them along with coconut and turmeric powder.

Now in the same pan add remaining oil and saute the chopped onion till golden brown.

Add green chillies and grated ginger and just stir it for a minute.

Now add the washed fish pieces and give a gentle stir taking care not to break them.

Finally add  the ground masala, kokam and salt and cook on a low flame.

When the fish pieces appear whitish it is an indication that they are cooked.

This takes hardly 7 to 8 minutes.

Don't over cook as fish is very soft and the pieces may break.

Garnish with coriander leaves and serve with plain hot rice.
