Spicy fish curry / Meen mulaku curry - old method

This is an old method of making fish curry, which is prepared grinding all the ingredients (spices) on a grinding stone / ammikkallu. This curry comes out as thick, so you can add more water to make it according to your taste.

Ingredients and method
Fish - sardines( mathi) - 6,
Tomatoes - 2,
small onions - 7,
tamarind - one lemon size,
red chillies - 5,
turmeric powder - 1/2 tea spoon,
curry leaves - few,
Garlic cloves- 3,
coconut oil - 1 table spoon,

Roast red chillies and grind with garlic,small onions and add mashed tomatoes to it.
Mix together.
Soak tamarind in little water for some time and take the extract.
Mix this with turmeric and add to the ground paste to make a thick solution.
Soak fish in this and cook.
Remove from fire when it is done, add curry leaves and coconut oil.
( if you like kudam puli use it instead of tamarind).
