Fish is a rich source of proteins and Omega 3 fatty acids which  are very good for the body. It is low in fat and is also rich in calcium and minerals. Hence it is recommended over other meats like lamb and chicken meat which contain fats. I have given below a simple recipe to make fish curry. The list of ingredients is long, but it gets done really fast and tastes delicious.


300 gms fish cleaned and washed
2 tbsp oil
1 bay leaf
1 cinnamon stick
2 cardamoms
2 to 3 cloves
5 to 6 peppercorns
1 large onion
1 tbsp garlic paste
1 tbsp ginger paste
1 tsp red chilli powder
1 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp fennel powder
4 tomatoes deseeded
2 tbsp poppy seeds soaked in water for 10 minutes
½ cup curd
2 tbsp coconut paste
1 tsp garam masala powder
A handful chopped coriander leaves
½ tsp lime juice (optional)


Chop the onions into small pieces and puree the tomatoes along with poppy seeds.

Heat oil in a pan, add bay leaf, cloves, cardamom, peppercorns, and cinnamon. Saute for some time. Then add onions and saute till onions turn golden. Now add garlic paste, ginger paste and mix well. Next add tomato puree- poppy seeds paste, red chilli powder, cumin powder, fennel powder and salt. Then add curd, fish pieces and mix well. Cook for a 5 minutes. Finally add coconut paste, garam masala, coriander leaves and 2 cups of water. Cook for 5 more minutes, then reduce the heat, close a lid and let it cook for 2 more minutes or till the fish is cooked. Add lime juice (optional) and serve hot with rice.
