Neymeen/Arakka (King fish)-300 gms
Green Chilli-3-4 (slits)
Curry leaves-1 string
Turmeric Powder-2 pinch
Ginger- one small (chopped finely)
Garlic-2 (chopped )

Lime juice-half of a lemon or according to ur taste
medium thick Coconut Milk-11/2 cup (of 1 coconut)

Mix turmeric powder,pepper powder,salt and lemon juice ..
Marinate the fish pieces with this masala mix and keep aside for 30 minutes
Then Shallow fry the fish and keep in a kitchen tissue .
Heat coconut oil in a non stick pan ,add ginger,garlic and green chilli Saute for one minute ,then add curry leaves,salt and onion ..
Saute till the onion become translucent ..
Then add turmeric powder and pepper powder .. Saute for few seconds ..
Then add garam masala and mix well..
Then add the fried fish pieces and coat the masala and cook for 2 minutes .
Then add second coconut milk and allow to cook for 5 minutes in medium heat
..Meanwhile just rotate the pan to mix the fish with the curry ..
Its better not to use a spoon after adding fish in to the gravy….
Cook till the gravy becomes semi medium thick ..
Then add thick coconut milk .. After that don’t boil the curry ,just heat ..
Then add lemon juice. Check the salt and spice ..
Remove from the stove ..
If u want u can add cornflour to thicken the gravy ..Here I didn`t do it .. Finally sprinkle 1 tbsp of coconut oil and 3-4 curry leaves and close the pan
Serve after 10 minutes .. Small tip:If ur coconut milk is not sweet enough ,u can add pinch of sugar to the coconut milk and mix before adding to the curry ..I am sure it will enhance the taste 😉

While in Muscat we used to order fish molee from a particular Keralite restaurant which was our favorite combination with parathas. Was feeling nostalgic and wanted to try out fish molee at home.
What began as casual surfing ended up bumping into your website and going through your recipes. Wow, what an array of recipes…Although basically from Mangalore, Keralite cuisine has always been my favorites and your curryworld is just the place to explore the possibilities. On a lighter note, your commentary while recording the fish molee recipe, reminded me of Shankar Mahadevan’s Breathless…..enjoyed it though.
