Indian Fish Coconut Curry

Was suppose to make two different fish recipes this weekend but kinda messed up one of them because I am not a chef and I am not a pro AND its okay failures happen you should not feel bad but just kill yourself and get over with it.

This recipe was suggested by the very amazing Elia Rathore and I've been wanting to make it for quite some time because it has two of my favorite ingredients FISH and COCONUT MILK.

Judging by the ingredients you can hint that it might be a Thai recipe but no this is an Indian originated recipe and it's called Indian Fish Coconut Curry. Taste wise this is very rich in flavour, mild and creamy.

The fish I have used here is Red Snapper.

I'll recommend that you have this with boiled basmati rice and you'll slove how the fish melts in your mouth with all the flavor of coconut milk and spices.


500 grams fish cut in 2 inch long cubes

1 cup coconut milk

1/4 cup water

1 onion finely chopped

1 full ripe tomato diced in cubes

1 teaspoon ginger paste

1 teaspoon garlic paste

1 teaspoon garam masala

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon red chili powder

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1-2 green chilies sliced in half

Easy as the ingredients look there is really no challenge in cooking it except you have to be careful with the fish.

You start of with heating 2-3 tablespoons of oil in a pan on medium heat. Add onions and ginger garlic paste.

Saute for 5 minutes till it becomes fragrant. You can lower the heat if its burning because this is the base masala for this curry and WE HAVE TO SAVE IT FROM BURNING.

Cook it for five minutes.

Add tomato now and crush the tomato cubes with your spatula. Cook it till it gets tender and is infused with the onion.

Add salt, pepper, red chili powder, garam masala, coconut milk and water.

Turn the heat to medium high.

Stir to combine it well and bring the mixture to a good boil.

Add the fish now and let it cook for 4-6 minutes.

Do not stir or even if you want to (you miserable impatient mortal) do it carefully and do not break the fish.

Add the slit green chili to it as well.

Indian Fish Coconut Curry is ready.

You can also have it with roti or chapati but OH MY GOD RICE TAKES IT TO THE NEXT LEVEL.

Ladies and gentlemen, everything is fair in fish and war. I present you all Indian Fish Coconut Curry.
