Coconut Milk Fish Curry Kerala Style


My favorite Coconut Milk Fish Curry.

This Fish curry is absolutely divine! Coconut milk and gambooge (fish tamarind) are the essential ingredients. Creamy, delicious fish curry with a yummy ‘zing’ to it.

I have received so many compliments for this curry over the years, it still amazes me. It’s quite an easy dish, so I decided to post it here for all those who have asked in the past. I think with practice, it gets perfected.

Things to watch for are the consistency of the coconut milk, the color of the curry, since spices vary you have to adjust till you get the perfect color. The fine chopping of the onion and garlic. Oh and yes, most Kerala curries use coconut oil and its’s great but for some reason this curry is always better for me with sunflower oil. I do not know why.

Then, there is always the main ingredient to consider. THE STAR. The fish must be fresh or all of your efforts will be shattered with this curry. If you live somewhere where you can get really fresh fish (I recommend Sear Fish), this  Fish Curry in Coconut Milk, Kerala Style, is for you! Scroll down for Video.
