Kerala Fish Curry

Kerala fish curry is one of the most delicious dishes from the state of Kerala in India. It is a tangy and spicy dish best had with steamed rice.

Traditionally fish curry is made in a clay pot and one of the key ingredients is the Kudam puli or Fish Tamarind. This recipe will use the regular tamarind instead of Fish tamarind. But please go for it if you have it handy.
This recipe also includes coconut milk which gives a nice texture and flavor to the curry.
