Goan fish curry,another yummy fish curry in my list.. This s a delicious must try recipe for fish lovers.... I learnt this recipe from my bother,must admit he s a good cook,and he loves to try and taste many cuisines around the world.I rarely add coconut to my dishes, don't know y.... May be,I got this habit from amma... She seldom adds in coconut,but after tasting this curry. I'm in total love,with the flavour of coconut,the smell and taste of it is so good and now a days I add coconut to most of my curries.I make this Goan curry in two ways,another is adding coconut milk with out the roasting and grinding part... Will soon post the another one.Till then try your hands on this delicious curry and let know..
Pomfret Fish - 3 pieces 
Coconut oil - 1 tbs
Garlic -3
Curry leaves - few
Onion - 1/4 cup
Tomato - 1
Turmeric powder - 1 tsp
Tamarind - small lemon sized
Salt - to taste
To Grind:
Dried red chilly - 8
Coconut - 3/4 cup
Fennel Seeds - 1 tsp
Garlic - 3
Ginger - small piece
Onion - 1/4 cup
Oil - 1 tsp
To Temper:
Coconut oil - 1/2 tbs
Mustard - 1 tsp
Curry leaves - few
Clean the fish with salt and pinch of turmeric,soak red chilly and tamarind separately in hot water for ten mins,and keep aside.Take a kadai pour in oil first add in fennel seeds and onion and sauté till onion is browned,
 Add grated coconut to the browned onion and sauté in medium flame till the coconut s brown.
 Then grind the browned coconut onion with rest of ingredients under "To Grind",grind to a smooth  paste.
Take mun satti or kadai pour in coconut oil,add garlic then onion and curry leaves and sauté till onion  is translucent.
Add in tomatoes sauté till mushy,then add in the ground paste sauté till oil oozes out.
 Add turmeric powder and salt along with 1&1/2 cup of water and allow the curry to boil well.
 Pour in tamarind water,and allow to boil till the curry is bit thick.then add in fish pieces and allow to  boil for till the fish is cooked.
 Finally temper with the ingredients under "To Temper"and curry is ready to serve.

Serve this yummy fish curry with rice and have a tasty meal:)

Soaking red chilly in hot water,give a smooth paste.Adjust the amount of spiciness to suit your tastes buds.If you don't have red chilly can replace with 1 tbs of red chilly powder.

Don't reduce the amount of coconut,this amount will be correct for the chilly added.

Browning the coconut and onion s the key for the curry,so do not skip that.

The final tempering is purely optional,i usually like this way.

Keep Smiling:)
