Malabar Fish Curry

This Malabar fish curry is full of delicious layers of flavours that complement rather than over power with your fish. You can intensify the flavours by not adding the coconut or by adding more of the paste in. Some would also add some whole green chillies in with the onions for added piquancy. Serve with plain rice.

  • 2 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1/2 onion, finely chopped

  1. Heat the oil in a non-stick saucepan. Add the onion, season lightly and fry until soft and then until golden at the edges.
