Kerala style Fish curry

I love this dish since it is very easy to cook, and it tastes great!


  1. Catfish, 2kg, cut and cleaned
  2. Ginger, 150gms, minced
  3. Garlic, 6 cloves, minced
  4. Green chillies, 3, minced
  5. Shallots, 4, minced
  6. Cocum, 5 pieces
  7. Curry leavs, 5-6 leaves
  8. Eastern fish masala, 5tbspn
  9. Coriander powder, 2 tbsp
  10. Kashmir Chilli powder, 1tsp or depending on how spicy you want it
  11. Oil, 4 tbsp


  1. Heat some oil in a pan, (you can sputter some mustard seeds at this point, but I did not use any), then add the garlic, ginger, chilli, cocum, curry leaves to the oil. Stir and let it cook.
  2. Take some warm water in a bowl, and add the fish masala, coriander powder, and the kashmiri chilly powder and mix together.
  3. Once the garlic mixture in the pan is lightly brown, add the masala mix to it.
  4. Increase the heat, and let it boil.
  5. Once it starts boiling, add the fish pieces. Make sure all the fish pieces are immersed in the curry. Cover and allow to simmer, 10-15minutes.
You will notice that the curry becomes more flavorful the next day.
