A quick and simple Kerala style fish curry made with tomatoes.
Here is the recipe…

- 1 tsp Chili powder
- 1/2 tsp Pepper powder
- 1/2 tsp Turmeric powder
- 2 medium Onion (chopped)

- 1 tsp Garam masala
- 2 cups Water
- 4-5 tbsp Coconut oil

- Marinate the cleaned fish pieces with ingredients listed under “for marination” and keep aside for half an hour. Heat 4 tbsp oil in a pan and fry the marinated fish pieces.
- Add chopped onion, ginger & garlic,curry leaves and green chili to the remaining oil and saute till it is done. Add all masala powders and stir for a minute. Once the masala powders are fried well, add tomato pieces and saute till the oil starts appearing.

I’ve heard about meen mulakittathu, but never knew its recipe…btw, thanks for trying this. Happy to hear that you liked it :)
Regarding the color, there is no camera trick :) I think this is more of reddish colour and may be the light gives it a yellowish tint.
Presently I dont have any plans to publish a book. Am just doing this as a hobby :)
