Fish Molee


Fish: 200 gm (I used salmon fish)
Cooking oil: 3 tsp.
Mustard seeds: 1/2 tsp.
Curry leaves: a few
Ginger- garlic paste: 2 tsp.
Green chilli (chopped): 1
Cloves: 2
Cardamom: 2
Cinnamon stick: 1/2 inch
Onions (sliced): 1
Tomato (chopped): 2
Salt to taste
Red chilli powder: 1/2 tsp.
Black pepper powder: 1/4 tsp.
Turmeric powder: 1/2 tsp.
Thin coconut milk: 4 tsp.
Thick coconut milk: 2 tsp.

  1. Wash and cube the fish and sprinkle salt, a bit of turmeric and black pepper powder and mix well. Keep aside for 15 minutes.
  2. Heat oil in a pan on medium flame and fry the fish from both sides for 5 minutes and remove and keep aside.
  3. Heat the same oil and crackle mustard seeds and then add curry leaves. I do add dried red chilli too because I love it, but the recipe does not require it. 
  4. Add ginger-garlic paste and saute it until the raw smell goes away. Add the green chilli and fry for a bit. 
  5. Add the whole spices: cloves, cardamom, and cinnamon. Add onions and cook until they start browning. 
  6. Add the tomatoes and sprinkle salt. Cook until the tomatoes are soft and mushy. Add red chilli powder and turmeric powder and thin coconut milk. Mix well and add a cup of water after a minute. Mix and cover, let cook on medium flame for about 10 minutes.
  7. Remove cover, add the thick coconut milk and the fried fish. Mix and cook for another 2 minutes. Remove from flame and serve hot with jeera rice !!
