Orissa Style Fish Curry

I am back after a long summer vacation in Malaysia. accept for a few post, my blog too went hibernation although the cooking, eating were not in hibernation.  Now that we are back to reality (oh is it that I have to do the cooking), have to get myself back on the right track.

A few days ago I tried Orissa style fish curry  - thanks to Sharell of http://www.whiteindianhousewife.com.  Lets indulge on Orissa Style Fish Curry...


Ingredients

Fish - cut small - (I used kingfish medium size)
tumeric powder
salt
1 sprig of curry leaves
1 onion - finely chopped
1 tomato - finely chopped
1 tsp of black mustard seeds
1 tsp ginger garlic paste
1 tsp red chilli powder
1 tsp garam masala
3 cups of water
1 - 3 tbs coconut milk powder (I used fresh milk)
a handful of chopped coriander leaves.

Method

1.  Rub tumeric and salt into the fishes and let it sit for a few minutes.
2.  Heat oil and fry the fish lightly.
3.  In a pot, heat oil and add in the mustard seeds. Once it starts to pot, add in the curry leaves and chopped onions, fry till golden brown.
4.  Add in the chopped tomato, ginger garlic paste, chilly powder and garam masala and fry for a few minutes.
5.  Add in the water and coconut milk, cooking for a few more minutes ( the curry is kind of watery and spicy)
6.  Finally add in the fried fish and coriander leaves, salt to taste and cook another five minutes.
