Silver Pomfret Curry

Another yummy fish curry. You can use your choice of fish from Black Pomfret, Silver Pomfret, Fresh Bombay Duck (Bombill), Silver Anchovies. I'm using Silver Pomfret.

Ingredients :

1 Medium Silver Pomfret clean, cut into pieces, wash & keep it aside.

Masala for Grinding 

1/2 bunch of coriander leaves
5 dry kashmiri chilies
4 green chilies
5 flakes of garlic
1/2 onion sliced
1" pc of ginger
marble size of tamrind
3 tomatoes chopped
1 tsp cumin seeds
2 tsp coriander seeds
5-6 black pepper corns

For Tempering 
1 big onion sliced
3 tbsp Oil

Method :
Grind the above masala with approx 1  cup of  water to a fine paste.
Take a cooking pot , heat oil.
Add the sliced onion , brown it.
Add the ground masala, stir and close the lid & let it fry on slow flame for 8-10 minutes until the masala leaves the oil. (The masala will splash so please put the lid on & keep stirring at intervals of 2-3 minutes ).

Add 1 1/2 cup of water to the masala, add 1 1/4 tsp salt (you may add salt as per your taste). Let the curry come to a boil., add the pieces of  fish. Lower the flame , close the lid & let the fish simmer in the curry for 5 minutes.

Enjoy the curry with steamed rice.
