KERALA FISH MOLLY

Fish Molly is one of the authentic Kerala recipe made with King Fish. This time i tried with Pomfret fish. A mild dish that can be eaten with appams, plain rice or White bread.


Ingredients :

Fish : 1/2 kg ( preferably king fish ), i used pomfret.
Shallots : 5-6
Oil
Cardamom : 4
Cloves : 4
Cinnamon : 1inch stick
Thin Coconut milk - 1 cup, (Third Extract)
Medium Coconut milk - 1 cup, (Second Extract)
Thick Coconut milk - 1/2 cup, (First Extract)
Curry leaves

To make paste :

Onion :1, Chopped
Green Chilli :2, Chopped
Ginger :1inch piece, Chopped
Garlic : 4cloves
Turmeric powder : 1/4tsp
Curry leaves : 2spring

To Marinate :

Pepper Powder : 4tsp
Turmeric Powder : 3/4tsp
Salt
Vinegar : 4tbsp





Method :

1. Marinate the fish pieces with pepper powder, turmeric powder, salt & vinegar. Keep it for one hour.

2. In a sauce pan, shallow fry the marinated fish Pieces. Keep aside.

3. Heat oil in the same pan. Splutter cardamom,cinnamon & cloves. Add shallots and saute in medium heat. Now add the paste of onion, chilli, turmeric powder, curry leaves, garlic and ginger. Once it gets the aroma of masala add the third extract of coconut milk. Let it boil.

4. Add the fried fish pieces &salt. When the gravy becomes little thick add medium coconut milk. Cover and simmer for some time. Remove the pan from heat and gently add thick coconut milk & just heat it.

Note : If you require a thicker gravy please add 2 teaspoons of cornflour to this.Serve hot with Palappam or bread.

  38. Hi Lena..I would be greatly obliged if you could help me out in this issue. Can you please check if my recent posts-Potato Stew & Chole Paneer Masala are visible in your dashboard since you are following my blog. My updates seems to have disappeared all of a sudden and I'm trying for a solution.

  40. Thanks a lot Lena for supporting me on the issue I faced.I solved the problem. The culprit was my customized feed(feedburner) that overflew and stopped indexing! Hence no updates were seen in Google Reader!
