Mouth watering fish ( nadan meen) curry. So nicely presented…!
I am glad you liked it.. 🙂
I haven’t cooked with fish a lot. Which fish would you suggest I use for this recipe?
White Pomfret traditionally. Surmai and Bangda ( Seer fish or Mackarel) would also do Hema..:)
Fish! Love it… 😀 Thanks for the recipe, UK… 🙂
Welcome Mani.. 🙂

Easy to cook. Though I don’t eat or cook fish but I can show it to my husband who loves such food.

I’d like to try this — with coconut milk. Thank you.
In my curry I generally leave out the coriander powder and add ‘ground coconut.’ And most of the time, instead of the regular tamarind I use what we call ‘Kodampuli” or Malabar Tamarind. You should try that if you haven’t already. 🙂
You meant Kerala Nadan… right 😉
Yes of course..Kerala Nadan.. 🙂
I am trying that next time..sure..:)
