Recipe
1
Clean and cut 500 grams of fish (preferably kingfish or pomfret) into medium-sized pieces. Marinate the fish with 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder, 1/2 teaspoon red chili powder, and salt for 15-20 minutes.
2
In a pan, heat 2 tablespoons of coconut oil. Add 1 teaspoon mustard seeds and let them splutter. Then, add 2-3 sliced green chilies, 1-inch piece of crushed ginger, and 10-12 curry leaves. Sauté for a minute.
3
Add 1 large sliced onion and cook until it turns translucent. Add 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder, 1/2 teaspoon red chili powder, and salt to taste. Mix well and cook for 2-3 minutes.
4
Pour 1 cup of thin coconut milk into the pan and bring it to a boil. Add the marinated fish pieces and cook on low heat for 10-12 minutes, or until the fish is cooked through.
5
Add 1 cup of thick coconut milk and gently mix. Cook for another 5 minutes on low heat. Adjust salt if needed and turn off the heat.
6
In a separate pan, heat 1 tablespoon of coconut oil. Add 3-4 sliced shallots and 1-2 dry red chilies. Fry until the shallots turn golden brown. Pour this tempering over the prepared fish curry and mix gently.
7
Serve the Kerala Fish Moilee hot with steamed rice or appam.
