Ever got a chance to prepare fish in the traditional Kerala way, in a plantain leaf? There is something unique about the taste of the fish cooked in the plantain leaf, for it would have absorbed the goodness of it.

Ingredients

5-6 fish pieces, cubed

1 cup shallots, sliced

1 cup thin coconut milk

2 dsp ginger, sliced thin

1 + ½ tsp pepper

1 tsp chilli powder

Salt, as required

¼ cup coconut oil

1 tsp mustard seeds

2 tsp coriander powder

2 dsp garlic flakes

5-6 kudampuli (Malabar tamarind) pieces

3 green chillies, slit

½ + ½ tsp turmeric powder

Preparation

Take 1 tsp pepper powder, ½ tsp turmeric powder and ½ tsp salt. Mix some water and make a loose paste

Rub this paste on the fish pieces and let them stay marinated for ten minutes

In a pan, pour oil

When it heats up, drop the marinated fish pieces into it

Flip and cook both sides until soft

Once done, drain the oil and take off the pan

In the same oil, add mustard seeds

Add the sliced shallots and saute well

Drop the green chillies, garlic and ginger and keep stirring

To a bowl, pass 1 tsp chilli powder, 2 tsp coriander powder, ½ tsp turmeric powder, ½ tsp pepper powder

Mix it with some water

Now add this paste to the onions and saute well
