Direction To Make

  • Take the fish and cut it into desired size pieces. I have used Surmai (Seer) fish to make the dish, you can use any of your choice.
  • Wash and clean the pieces of fish thoroughly.

Marinate Fish

  • Marinate the fish first. For marinating, take out the pieces of fish in a big bowl, add 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder, 1/2 teaspoon Kashmiri red chili powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon ginger garlic paste and mix it well, so that all the spices are well wrapped to the pieces of fish.
  • Set the fish aside to marinate for about 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, grind ginger, garlic, onion and tomato in a grinder to make a smooth paste.

Fry Marinated Fish

  • After 20 minutes of marinating the fish, heat ghee or oil in a pan on high flame until light smoke starts rising from the ghee.
  • While putting the fish in ghee, reduce the gas and put it carefully, otherwise ghee will scattered on your hands.
  • Now make the gas medium.
  • Fry the fish till it turns light brown and fry it well from both the sides by turning the fish in between.
  • Take out the fish on a plate.

Masala Fish Curry

  • We will use the leftover ghee to make curry.
  • Add roasted cumin seeds, green chilies and stir-fry for a few seconds.
  • Now Add tomato onion paste and mix well.
  • Add all dry spices here like turmeric powder, kashmiri red chilli powder, black pepper powder, roasted cumin powder, coriander powder, garam masala, chaat masala and meat masala.
  • Cover the pan and let it cook on medium flame for 12-15 minutes till oil starts seperating from it, stirring occasionally so that it does not stick to the pan.
  • Add 2 cups of water or as required to maintain the thickness of the gravy.
  • Add 1 tsp salt (use a little less salt as per taste as we also used salt at the time of marination) and mix well.
  • Cover the pan and let it boil on high flame. Once boiled, mix well. Lower the flame and add the fried fish to it. Cover the pan and let the fish cook with the gravy for about 5 - 7 minutes.
  • Turn the fish from time to time so that it doesn't stick to the pan.
  • Fish curry is ready. Transfer the fish to a serving bowl. Garnish the fish curry with green coriander.
  • Enjoy fish curry with rice or roti for lunch or dinner.
