Fish curry with steamed rice.

I have always been a huge fish fan and being someone who has been born and brought up in Bombay, salt water fish has always taken preference over fresh water fish. Of which. Pomfret tops the list followed by Kingfish, Bombay duck and Prawns.I enjoy fish in any form like curries, fried fish or rice Pulaos..Just great!! I love my curry with simple steamed rice.
Here's a simple fish recipe from my mommy's kitchen.Enjoy!!

2 medium sized pomfrets or any other fish of your choice cut into cubes or slices.
1 tsp turmeric powder
juice of 2 lemons
Salt and pepper to taste

Mix turmeric powder, lemon juice and salt & pepper and marinade the fish for at least 15 minutes. keep aside.


1 thai chilli slit in the center
1 large onion chopped
3 cloves garlic minced
1 tbsp ginger minced
1 cup tomato puree
1 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp chilli powder
1 tsp garam masala powder
1 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
2 tbsp EVOO
Salt and pepper

Heat oil in a pan, add cumin seeds followed by chilli,garlic & ginger. Saute for about 10 seconds followed by adding the onion.Leave it for about 2-3 minutes till onion is translucent.add tomatoes and all the spices. Season with salt and pepper and add about 3 cups of water and fish. Let it come to a boil. Simmer and cover it for another 6-7 minutes. Garnish with freshly chopped cilantro.

Is EVOO essential for this dish? I love King Fish, Pomfret and that order. :)
