    How to prepare
    Clean fish and marinate using the above ingredients. Shallow fry them. Use coconut oil for frying. It will enhance the taste..!

    Fish Kuzhambhu - Serving 4:-

    Hope you have home-made chilli powder(combination fo both red chilli,coriander and few more dals). If available well and good else take 1:2 proportion of red chilli powder and coriander powder.

    In a big vessel extract juice out of soaked tamarind.Add the chilli powder,turmeric powder,salt and water. taste it and check the sourness and spice(if you are an expert in ratio i'm :bowdown).Dilute with enough water.The final mixture must be atleast double the times of gravy you need for serving.

    Onions - 1- big Chop as fine as possible
    Tomatoes - 3 big Chop fine
    Green chillies - 3-4 slit into 2
    Tamarind extract
    Chilli powder
    Turmeric powder
    Salt
    Msutard seeds
    Curry leaves
    Oil


    Heat oil(add little excess as it enhances the taste of the gravy and helps stand for a long time).
    Splutter mustard seeds and add curry leaves.
    Next add chopped onions and saute till golden brown(oil must be enough so that they deep fry :).yes i am not exaggerating)
    Next add tomatoes and g.chillies till the raw smell goes off(in medium flame.should not blacken).
    Now add the chilli powder-tamarind extract mixture and let it boil well.
    Once it reduces to half.Pour 1-2 tumblers of water and let it boil again.
    As soon as it reduces to half add the fish and reduce the flame.Cook it covered.After 5-10 mins check if the fish is cooked well.Let it simmer for 10 more minutes so that the oil separates in the corners.

    Very easy and tasty gravy.Apt for hot rice with little ghee :drool.

    Only thing it requires more time and oil to enhance taste.Itz not that you need to stay aside and kindle.Just simmer and let it cook peacefully.
