Angamaly Fish Curry

Below is the recipie for the traditional Angamaly Fish Curry. Am a big fan of this dish. I have prepared this dish several times but am not still able to prepare it like how my mother do. The below recipie is a modified version which i got from a friend.

Fish(King fish) - 1 Kilo

Coconut - 1 Full

Onion - 3 Pieces

Ginger - 50 Gram

Garlic - 50 Gram

Green Chili – 10 - 15 Pieces

Coriander Powder - 4 Tbsp

Red Chili Powder – 1 - 1/2 Tbsp

Turmeric - 1/2 Tbsp

Curry Leaves - 3 Stem

Mustard - 1 Teaspoon

Small Onion - 10 Pieces

Red Chili - 3 Pieces

Vinegar - 3 Tbsp

Salt to Taste

Note about Mango:
1 Kilo Mango (Medium Sized) - When Mango Is Peeled, Please Make Sure That The Flesh Doesn’t Contain Any Green Substance (Peel) Because it Spoils The Taste of the Curry. Mango Should Be Cut Into Finger Size.

Note About coconut:
Grind the coconut with 1/2 liter water to make natural coconut milk. Or use coconut milk powder if u doesn’t have real coconut, but in that case u wont get the real taste.

Take sliced onion, ginger (cut into 1 inch length), garlic (each sliced into 2-3 pieces), green chili (each sliced into 2-3 pieces), curry leaves ( 3 stems) in a cooking pan. Add salt and vinegar to it and Start mixing it with your hand. Mix it thoroughly. After sometime add coriander powder, red chili powder, turmeric powder, and oil into it and mix it. . After mixing add the mango pieces to it. Add a mix of water and coconut milk (3:1 proportion) to it so that the mixture just covers the ingredients (fish and mango). Cook it in medium flame. When it starts to boil put the fish in it and checks the salt. (u can add salt if necessary). After 10 minutes check whether the mango is cooked. If mango is cooked properly it means the fish is also ready. Now add the coconut milk into it. And boil it for few minutes. Now in a fry pan add oil and heat it & add some mustard, sauté the small onions, add the dried red chili , curry leaves etc. sauté all of them and just add them to the curry.

Yummy Angamaly fish curry ready.. Its very tasty with rice. :)

Note: The taste of the curry depends on the mango, and the quality of the coconut milk

I like it with plain rice (Biriyani rice). Just rice and the fish curry is more than enough for me. As you have very correctly noted, the quality of the mango and the coconut milk decides the quality of the curry.

Tin or Pack of Coconut Milk- 200 ml

Onion - 1 chopped
Ginger - one large piece copped
Garlic - 4 chopped
Coriander Powder -1 Tbsp
Red Chili Powder – 1 Tbsp
Turmeric - 1/2 Tbsp
Curry Leaves - 3 Stem

Mustard - 1 Teaspoon
Vinegar - as per taste
Salt to Taste

Heat oil ( 1tbsp) and when hot add the Mustard, when it finishes crackling, add the copped onion, ginger, garlic and curry leaves.Fry for two minutes. Now add the chilli, turmeric and coriander powder and stir fry for a minute. Now add half the coconut milk and a cup of water and when this comes to a boil add the fish pieces. Add the salt too.

Let cook for exactly ten minutes. Now add the rest of the coconut milk and bring to boil once. Put the gas off and add the vinegar ( around 1 tsp should be sufficient). Serve hot with plain rice.
This is a sure fire recipe that many a bachelor cousins prepared and taught their wives after getting married :))
