I devote this dish to all my native people, who love food. Easy to make in a short period of time and tasty fish curry.

  • Soak tamarind and extract the water. In that extract add turmeric, chilli and coriander powder, salt and mix well. Keep the cleaned fish and allow to soak in masala till the other procedures finish in about 5 minutes.
  • Grind coconut, onion, garlic, jeera, pepper together as fine paste. Add this with the fish masala and add some water to a desired consistency. Cut the tomato and slit the green chilli and add to this masala.
