Authentic South Indian Fish Kozhumbu/Gravy


Every sunday is very special for me as I try to explore different non-veg recipes. Authentic south Indian fish kuzhumbu/gravy is a spicy recipe which I would love to have with plain boiled rice. Fish is a rich source of Omega 3 fatty acids and it is good for your skin too. Whenever it comes to non-veg all our taste buds longs for a spicy recipe so I have pen down my spicy fish kuzhumbu recipe.



Ingerdients:

  1. Fish - 1 lb(I used Tilapia)
  2. Onion - 2(Finely chopped)
  3. Cumin seeds - 1 ½ tsp
  4. Sesame seeds - 1 tsp
  5. Garlic pods - 2
  6. Pepper – 2 tsp
  7. Gingely oil – 4 tbsp
  8. Chilli powder – 4 tsp
  9. Tamarind pulp – 1 cup(little thicker)
  10. Salt – to taste
  11. Curry leaves – to garnish

Direction:

  1. Heat about 1tbsp of oil and add cumin seeds, sesame seeds, pepper, onions and garlic pods, allow them to fry till they get a light brown color.
  2. Now grind the above mixture to a paste form.
  3. Heat the remaining oil in a non-stick pan then add the ground paste and the tamarind pulp. Allow them to cook for sometime until they boil.
  4. Add chilli powder and salt according to taste.
  5. Now add chunks of fish and cook them till the froth in the kuzhumbu/gravy disappears and oil separates out from them.
  6. Serve it hot with boiled rice!!
