INGREDIENTS TO MAKE Indian Fish Curry

This section explains the ingredients used in making simple fish curry, how to use or choose certain ingredients, and what substitution options are available. For dimensions, see the recipe card below.

FISH – We used Indian bass fish (pangasius). You can use any rohu, tilapia, pomfret, red snapper, kingfish, mackerel, etc., all of which will work for this recipe.

OIL – The recipe uses refined sunflower oil. You can use mustard oil or some cooking oil.

Onion – Regular onion is used here. You can also use shallots (small onions).

GINGER AND GARLIC – Fresh pound (crushed) ginger garlic is used here. I always prefer to use freshly ground ginger garlic as it adds more flavor and enhances the taste of the dish. You can use store-bought ginger-garlic paste.

CHILI – I used green chili. You can use dry red chili and adjust the heat preference to suit your taste buds.

TOMATO – The recipe uses regular tomatoes. You can use cherry tomatoes instead. Adding tomato to fish curry improves the taste and texture of the curry, but you can skip this and use tamarind extract or tamarind paste as a springing agent.

SPICES – The recipe uses only masala powders and whole spices. The masala spice powders used are turmeric powder, red chili powder, cumin powder, coriander powder, pepper powder, and garam masala powder.

These masala powders can be substituted with whatever curry powder you have. You can also use fish curry masala, which is readily available in the market.

SALTY according to taste

WATER as requested

SPICES – At the end of cooking, sprinkle fresh coriander leaves and lemon juice for extra freshness and flavor of the curry.

COMMENTS:

  • Use your favorite choice of fish.
  • For the same recipe you can use shrimp or crab.
  • You can lightly fry the fish, rubbed with salt and turmeric, before adding it to the curry.
  • You also use coconut oil, which gives a nice taste and aroma to the fish curry.
  • You can use either fresh or frozen fish. But I prefer to use fresh fish.
  • Traditionally, fish curries are made in earthen pots, especially in villages. If you let them use it or some other way, a regular pot will work too.

VARIATIONS:

  • You can fry or lightly fry the fish pieces before adding them to the curry. Just rub a little salt and turmeric powder on the fish and fry them.
  • If you don’t want to use the masala powders or don’t have them with you, you can quickly make a fresh masala paste.
  • To make a spicier curry, grind green chilies or red chilies, ginger, garlic, cinnamon sticks, cardamom, cloves, coriander seeds, cumin seeds, and turmeric in a mixie or mortar. Fry the pasta together with the onion and follow the recipe as stated.
  • You can add coconut milk or freshly grated coconut and tamarind extract or paste.
  • You can add Gobi aka cauliflower or peas. This is tasty, a nice combination with fish curry.
