Line Fish Kulambu

 
I came to know how to cook Fish Kulambu very recently, My first try was tasted very good cooked with Red Fish and I started to cook the fish kulambu every week in my menu. Last time, I tried with coconut with pearl onions paste this time tried without it. It turned very good, I used Line Fish for this curry enjoyed it with Salmon fish fry for my dinner. Here, is the recipe for Fish Kulambu as follows,

Ingredients:

1.Line Fish pieces - 300 gms
2.Extract from lemon size tamarind  -  1 1/2 cups
3.Chopped Onions - 1 big
4.Slitted green chillies - 4 no's
5.Kashmiri red chilli powder - 3 tsp
6.Coriander Powder - 1 tbsp
7.Turmeirc powder - 1tsp
8.Canola Oil - 2 tbsp
9.Chopped tomatoes - 2 medium
10.Curry leaves  2 strings
11.Mustard seeds - 1tsp
12.Fenugreek Seeds - 1 1/2 tsp
13.Garlic slices - 10 no's ( use depends upon the strongness of the garlic)
14.Salt as reqd

Preparation:

1.Clean and cut the fish into big slices and keep it aside, extract the tamarind juice and add the turmeric powder, red chilli powder and coriander powder. 
2.Heat Oil in the heavy bottom pan, season the mustard and fenugreek seeds. Follow with curry leaves, garlic slices and green chillies.
3.Add the chopped onions, saute nicely till it turns light golden brown. Then add the chopped tomatoes and enough salt for the kulambu ( adding salt in this stage helps to cook the tomatoes quickly). Close the pan with the lid till the tomatoes turn to mash, oil leaves on the edges.
4.After the tomatoes cooked well add the tamarind juice, stir it well. Leave it to cook nicely for 10 mts or till the raw smell of the masalas goes off.
5.Turn the fire to medium and finally add the fish slices and close the pan with the lid it will take only 5-10 mts  gets to cook, don't stir the kulambu after fish cooked well ( it will break into pieces).
6.Now the delicious Fish Kulambu is ready to serve with hot steamed rice and Hot Fish fry.
