  • 500 gms fish (any fish of your choice, I have used King Fish in this recipe)
  • 3 tbsp oil
  • 3 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp fenugreek seeds
  • 2 medium sized onions
  • 1 cup coconut freshly grated
  • 2 to matoes finely chopped
  • 1 cup juice of tamarind pulp
  • 4 green chilly slit in middle
  • 2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 3 tsp red chili powder
  • salt to taste
  • 4 tbsp chopped coriander leaves/cilantro
  • 4 tbsp dill leaves/suva bhaji


  • Dry roast the cumin seeds and fenugreek seeds till lightly brown about a minute or so.
  • Grind this roasted seeds along with the grated coconut and onion to a paste and set aside.
  • In a large enough pan, add the oil, fish and rest of the ingredients green chilly, tomatoes, tamarind juice, turmeric powder, red chili powder, salt, coriander leaves, dill leaves and the onion-coconut paste.
  • Add a cup of water and mix well.
  • Cook on medium to low flame stirring occasionally. Just rotate the pan gently and don't stir too hard with the spoon. The fish breaks easily if you stir too much.
  • Switch off the flame when the green chili changes it's color and oil starts floating on top.
