  • Green chilli - 2, cut into half (long).
  • Tomato   - 1, medium sized, slice it thin and long, and cut into halves.
  • Coconut milk - 1/3 of the can (4.5 oz).
  • Tomato puree - 3 spoon.
  • Mango powder - 1/2 spoon.

  • mustard seed - 1/4 spoon.

Preparation

  1. Heat the oil, fry mustard seeds, then add onion and stir for a while.
  2. Then add green chilli, ginger and shallot pieces (and curry leaves).
  3. Stir for a few minutes.
  4. Add tomato, and then tomato puree; stir well, then add salt, uluva (methi/fenugreek) powder, mango powder and fish masala. (If you don't have Kerala fish masala, then add 1.5 spoon [fine] coriander powder, 1 spoon chilli powder, 1/5 turmeric powder, one pinch more uluva powder.)
  5. Stir well, then add coconut milk.
  6. When it boils, add the fish pieces; stir slowly, then cover it and cook on low-medium heat.
  7. Stir once a while (careful not to break the fish pieces) until it is cooked.

Note: To clean fish nicely, put the fish pieces in cold water, add 1/2 cup of salt, a cup of vinegar, and 1 lime/lemon juice, and keep it for 15 minutes. It will take away the smell and the bad taste of fish.
