Kerala is the land of coconuts. It is used every day, as part of almost every meal. Fish curries taste best when made using ground coconut mix. I learnt this tasty recipe from my mother-in-law. My husband and I come from two extreme regions of the state, and hence the tastes and methods of preparation are very different. Fish curry is one among the many dishes that was prepared differently from what I had known earlier. Here is how to make this spicy curry.
Another specialty of this lip smacking curry is the use of malabar tamarind or pot tamarind (popularly known as kudampuli). It gives a very unique and different flavor and aroma to the curry. This dish goes perfectly with a bowl of steaming rice or appam. Even the combination of puttu that I made the other day, with this curry was awesomely delicious.
