It's been sometime since I posted a fish recipe here, right? Though both of us like fish big time, we dont get to eat it as much as we like. So, every time we go to Kerala, we make sure we compensate for all the lost time by feasting on a fish centred menu.
I'm not sure whether I already told you this… During our last Kerala trip, Appa took us to a small village called Kadamakkudy. It's an island near Ernakulam, Cochin. It's a very beautiful place! I was quite surprised to see such a place very close to the city. Now, that reminds me another thing… I've always felt that you cannot find a typical village in Kerala, like rest of India. Most of the places are small towns and does not fit the description of a typical Indian village. Do you think so?
Next time you are in Cochin and you get frustrated with the traffic and Metro work, take a drive to this beautiful place and I'm sure you will love the change of scene! If you are lucky, you will end up with some fresh catch too, you never know!
When my parents have visitors, Appa makes a trip to Kadamakkudy to get fresh catch of the day and I should say the taste of that is something else altogether! When we were there Appa got fresh Karimeen, Lobster and Prawns. See, I told you we make sure to compensate for all the lost time ;)
Coming to this recipe, this is a Malabar style fish recipe. The main difference I felt is the addition of Tamarind instead of Kudampuli and also using tomato. Though I love Kudampuli Fish curries, I dont mind trying different style once in a while. It's a very easy recipe and the end result is a flavourful dish.
Hope you too will like it.
