Fish Curry without coconut Recipe | Easy Fish Curry Recipe


In my previous post of Kottayam style fish curry, I mentioned that now I am in the search of fish curries that are not coconut based. Now I got another recipe of fish curry which is not coconut based and it tastes delicious. Normally the fish curries will get a thick consistency when we add coconut in it, but this curry also has a thick consistency without adding coconut or coconut milk. For getting the thick consistency, here I prepared a masala and grind it into a fine paste and add that paste into the curry. This curry’s taste was similar to the taste of the curry that we used to prepare with coconut. I am not using tamarind in this curry. For getting sour taste I added mango and tomato in this curry. If you don’t have mango, you can use tamarind or kudampuli also instead of mango. It won’t change the taste of this curry. The taste of this curry comes from the masala that we prepare for this curry. For enhancing the taste of this curry I added turmeric powder, coriander powder and redchilli powder along with small onions for tempering of this curry. U can also do like that while preparing any fish curries, that will enhance the taste of fish curry. I think this curry is very easy to prepare with less ingredients in few minutes. Try this recipe and let me know how it turned out for you.
