Creamy Fish Curry!!!

Hi guys!!!

I try and cook fish once a week and mostly in the usual forms i.e., fish fry or kuzhambu. Recently I thought I should try and prepare a fish gravy that would be great with rotis. I actually started to prepare a basic fish curry and since the spice level went higher than expected I ended up adding some cream that was lying around in my fridge. Thus was born this amazingly tasty and creamy fish curry!!!!

Now lets see the recipe.


Boneless fish fillets - 200 gms (any hard fleshed kind)
Onion - 1 big
Tomatoes - 2 medium or 1 big
Ginger & Garlic paste -1 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Chilli powder - 1 tsp
Corriander powder - 1 tsp
Garam masala - 1 tsp
Heavy cream - 2 tbsp
Salt - as required
Oil - 1 tbsp


1.Heat the oil in a kadai on medium heat and when hot add the chopped onion and saute till they turn transparent.
2. When the onions turn crisp add the ginger and garlic paste and saute till the raw smell vanishes. Next add the chopped tomatoes and saute till they turn mushy and form a paste with the onions.
3. Add all the masala powders (except garam masala), salt and 1/2 cup water and mix well. Check the salt and spice level and close the kadai and let the masalas cook for 5 minutes.
4. Now add the cleaned fish pieces to the masala and let it cook completely with the lid closed. This takes around 10-15 minutes.
5. When the fish is cooked and the masalas have blended in well, add the garam masala and pour the cream as well. Mix well and switch off heat.

Serve hot with rotis!!!
