Fish/Chepala Pulusu

Whenever i start doing any non veg item i remember my mom always...Its because that i cannot match her in any way...Somehow i dont get the taste that gets from her. May be i think each one of us face the same thing in our life. As many items we do at home when we have something from our mom the taste lasts. That is the love we developed for her cooking from our childhood. There are many such items that i could not reach my mom and one such is this Fish Pulusu. But this time by my luck it just matched a bit to her taste so i just wanna share that you all. Hope you all enjoy it too...!!!
Im sending this recipe to Celebrating Mom event organised by My Home Kitchen.


Ingredients :-

Fish - 1 big fish of your choice, i took Mackerel fish
Tamarind - 2 lemon sized ball
Onions - 1 , small
Tomatoes - 1
Chillis - 4
Chilli powder - 1tsp
Turmeric - 1/2 tsp
Oil - 2 to 3 tsp
Jeera powder - 1 tsp
Coriander - few leaves
Salt to taste

Procedure:-


  • Clean fish with salt and water, add chilli powder, turmeric, salt and keep it aside for half an hour.
  • Heat 2tsp oil in a frying pan/ skillet and add the fish pieces evenly (avoid keeping one on top of other for even frying) and fry on both sides carefully till brown colour and keep it aside.
  • Now in the same pan add 1 more tsp oil, add onions, slit chilis and fry for 5 mins and add the fish pieces carefully in it.
  • Add the tamarind juice, diced tomatoes and keep the lid.
  • Now when it is started boiling add the coriander and adjust salt and chilli powder let it boil for some more time.
  • The Fish turns its color to dark brown and the piece is a bit hard and the gravy thickens a bit then switch off the flame.


Tip :

  • Can be done directly without frying it before but by doing this will avoid fish from breaking while it is being cooked and served too.
