Seer fish also called Surmai or king fish – five large pieces
Green mango – one small bowl, smashed
Onion – one large, chopped finely
Pepper Powder – two teaspoons
Turmeric powder – 1 teaspoon
Chilly powder – 2 teaspoon
Curry leaves – 2 sprigs
Mustard seed – 1 teaspoon
Coconut oil
Coconut milk – 1 large cup
Green chillies – 3 slit


Wash the fish and smear it with pepper powder, turmeric powder and salt. Pour oil in a pan and fry the fish.

Pour oil in a pot and when the oil is hot add the mustard seed. The seeds need to crackle. Now add the slit green chillies, chopped onions, chilly powder and fry all together. Add the smashed green mangoes, curry leaves and fry.

Finally add the coconut milk and lower the flame to ensure the milk does not split and curdle. Add salt to taste. Now put in the fried fish, do not use a spoon to mix as the fish may break. The best thing to do is lift the vessel and swirl the curry till the fish is immersed in the gravy, when you see that it is about to come to a boil remove it from the fire.
