The Best Fish Curry

the best indian fish curry recipe by blogger Findianlife

Another indian recipe which I just created by accident (and experience). I love this one and it’s relatively quick one as well, no chapatis needed, just rice on the side. I used some shortcuts but hey, we all need time for other things as well ๐Ÿ˜‰



1 tsp mustard seeds

15-20 curry leaves

1/2 tsp fenugreek seeds (methi)

1 red onion sliced

1 tsp ginger-garlic paste (or fresh ginger and garlic)

4 dried red chilis

1/2 tsp turmeric powder (haldi)

1 tsp fish curry masala

1/4 tin of tomatoes (or 1 ripe tomato)

400-500g any white-coloured fish or prawns

200ml coconut milk

Fresh coriander

Juice of 1 small lime




Slice the onion and chop the coriander.

Heat oil in a pan on medium heat, add mustard seeds and let them splutter. Then add the curry leaves and fenugreek seeds. Fry for a minute.

Add onion and fry until golden.

Add coriander stems, ginger-garlic paste and dried red chilis. Fry for 2 minutes.

Now add turmeric powder, fish curry masala and salt.

The great thing about indian cooking is that it’s not that particular. Just throw in some spices and if you have put too much chili, add more coconut milk. If the curry is too mild for your taste, add chili powder or more fish curry masala at the end.

Enjoy your curry!
