Fish tamarind flavored fish cooked the Keralite way.

Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 45 minutes
Serves: 4
Recipe Ingredients:
5 pieces kokum (fish tamarind)
500g monkfish
½tsp salt
1tsp turmeric powder
½tsp fenugreek seeds
2tbsp red chili paste
400ml water
2tbsp refined vegetable oil
1/2tsp mustard seeds
10-12 curry leaves
2 medium onions, grated
1tbsp peeled and finely sliced garlic
Recipe Method:
Wash the kokum and leave it to soak in 50ml warm water.
Cut the fish into 12 pieces. Rinse the fish, pat dry and rub in ½tsp turmeric and ½tsp salt. Set aside to marinate.
Dry-roast the fenugreek seeds for a few seconds in a small frying pan till fragrant, then grind. Be careful not to over-roast the seeds as this will make them bitter.
Mix the fenugreek, chili paste and half a teaspoon of turmeric together with 50ml of water, forming a paste.
Heat the oil in a deep heavy-based frying pan. Add the mustard seeds; when they pop after a few seconds, add the curry leaves, onion and garlic and fry until the onion is translucent (about 3-4 minutes), then add the remaining salt.
Add the fenugreek paste and fry, stirring, for a further 3-4 minutes. Add the remaining water, bring to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
Add the soaked kokum plus its soaking water. Simmer for a further 10 minutes, until the mixture thickens a little.
Add the monkfish and simmer gently for 10 minutes. Serve with plain boiled rice.
