Quick and Easy Fish Curry in a Hurry!!

Weekdays are kind of busy and for people who work outside home, it can get a little too tiring to get back home and cook a tasty hot meal.  This is for one such evenings...quick and easy but very tasty and healthy.  I bet your family will love it!!

  • Fish - 2 pounds (I used Salmon) - Cut into bite size pieces
  • Coconut Oil - 1 table spoon
  • Mustard seeds - 1 tea spoon
  • Curry leaves - 6-8
  • Methi / Fenugreek seeds - 1 tea spoon
  • Dry red chillies - 4-5
  • Coconut milk - 1 cup
  • Water - 2 cups
  • Salt - 1 table spoon (adjust per taste)
  • Red chili powder - 1 tea spoon (adjust per taste)
  • Turmeric - 1 tea spoon
  • Coriander powder - 1 tea spoon
  • Sambar powder - 1 tea spoon (adjust chili powder if your sambar powder has chili added to it)
  • Jeera / Cumin powder - 1 tea spoon

To a pan on medium heat, add Coconut oil.  Once it is hot, add mustard seeds and let it splutter, add curry leaves, dry red chillies and methi.  Now, add the coconut milk and water.  Add all other spices and let it come to a boil.  Now add the fish pieces and cook till the fish is well done.  This will require about 8-12 minutes depending on which fish you are using.  Generally, fish does not need too much time to cook.  Serve hot with rice, roti, quino or just enjoy by itself!!
