This recipe is given by my friend Latha. I have tried this many times. It is very simple and tasty. It has been one of kid's favourite.


500 grams of boneless fish (cut into small pieces)
2 onions, sliced finely
2 green chillies (slit into two)
some curry leaves
1 tsp Coriander powder
1/2 tsp chilli powder
1/2 coconut milk
1/2 cup grated coconut
1/2 cup oil.

Marinade:1 tbsp chilli powder
1/4 tsp pepper powder
juice of two limes
1 tsp ginger paste
salt to taste.

Mix all the ingredients for the marinade together and make a paste.
Apply the paste over the fish pieces and leave it for an hour.
Roast the grated coconut to a golden colour.

Heat oil in a pan, fry the fish pieces.
Remove and leave it in a tissue to drainof extra oil.
Heat the remaining oil in the pan, saute onions till golden.
Add green chillies, curry leaves, saute for a minute or two.
Add the chilli powder and the coriander powder.
Add salt to taste and the coconut milk.
When it comes to boil, add the fish pieces and cook till tender and the gravy dry.
