srilankan or goan fish curry recipe.

Post by veronica_inheels » Sun Mar 29, 2015 4:27 am

it was excellent,

one thing i would change next time - i dont have a spice grinder and i used magic bullet with a blender blade to do it. it was too coarse for my taste. i think very finely ground spices is the key.
i added chili as per recipe, and after i was tasting it, i could mainly feel the hotness not the other spices, so next time i will add very little chili. to remedy this, i added another tablespoon of srilankan curry mix, and about 10 more curry leafs. it worked.

But i think that this recipe regardless of my chili experience, needs more of the curry mix.

http://www.lifestylefood.com.au/recipes ... fish-curry

in photos it looked like that:
step 1 of the method:
Image

step 2, after peeling tomatoes skin, i chopped them and blended them before adding to simmer. I simmered for 10 min before adding coconut milk because i didnt want to cook too long with milk to prevent oil from separating. then i added coconut milk and cooked for 10 min on low heat.
Image

step 3 adding salmon ( simmer for 5 min) and left it there for 20.

on my plate :D

That looks really good, vron. My daughter loves salmon but I've not cooked curry for her (because I worry I would end up overcooking the seafood).

That looks good! I have made Sri Lankan curry a few times from a recipe that s8 posted
First time I used a firm white fish(I think halibut) along with salmom
I actually thought the salmon went better with the curry

I'm going to make this on Tuesday. Not with salmon, though.

BUT I don't have a spice or a coffee grinder. What should I do?

You may need to buy a cheap coffee grinder. I think mine was under $10. You really want them ground to a fine powder, if possible.

This is basically what mine looks like. Just not this brand.

I didnt want spices in our coffee grinder because even if you clean it well ( and you can not use water), the smell will linger. I wanted to avoid coffee in curry and worse- curry in coffee.
Ill just buy a cheap coffee grinder at some point.

Yes clara, it is a nice dish for entertaining guests. You can use any seafood or any fish filet i think. I dont like using salmon steaks for anything.
You can get spices cheap in ethnic stores. Fresh curry leafs may be a problem, just omit them.

I didnt overcook flatfoot, just follow the instructions. Depending on the thickness, i guess. Mine was thick so i cooked at low heat for 7 min and just left it in the pot with heat turned off.
Other seafood cooks even faster, so just watch it.
Just watch the chilli, i think that too much will overpower the taste. It is very flavourful, with coconut, slight sourness from tamarind and everything else.

I don't drink coffee so my 'coffee' grinder is used for spices only. I've got some Pakistani curries I use it for as well. I think Vron is right and that if you tried to use it for both coffee and spices, the flavours would probably still linger a bit no matter how much you cleaned it after.

Degreed. I've googled grinders a bit. They start at about €20, but I don't really have time to look for one tomorrow, so I'll have to improvise. How about pestle and mortar?

will work klara. maybe start with bigger pieces first ( cinnamon, cardamon, clove) and then the seeds.

even if it is not very fine, it still is good to eat. i only had to pick out couple of small cinnamon pieces.

If you're using a pestle and mortar you could always sieve the spices afterwards to catch any anti-socially large bits.

I've been beating the crap out of those spices, but they still look coarse.

I've also made a tomato and apple chutney to go with the fish curry. It's still warm, but it tastes great.

I have one of these. It's small, not expensive and works fine for smaller quantities of spices.

This is what I use. The big one is just big enough for one smoothie (450 ml) or to blend a can of tomatoes. The small ones I use for spices and small quantities of nuts. Perfect if you're cooking for one. I have a bigger grinder/chopper, but I use this more often.

looks very nice.

now imagine if the sauce was velvety smooth.

off to buy a grinder.

also, you can use this technique to get your sauce smooth, this reverses the steps but i think it should work for this curry: heat curry powder first watch it carefully dont burn the spices, then add blended onions, garlic, tomatoes fry for few minutes and add tumeric and fry. add curry leafs, fry longer, add tamarind and lastly the coconut milk.

just like in this recipe. i tried it few times and it is excellent

To be honest, it didn't feel as coarse as I'd expected. The curry powder didn't look very promising at all, though. I'll probably still buy a cheap grinder at some point.

Those chapatis were the best I've ever made. I usually used wholewheat flour only, but this time I used half white and half wholewheat. They were really really nice and soft.

Thanks for posting this Veronica, the beautiful color of the curry inspired me to try it too. Is this the same recipe that S8 posted? I didn't see it.

Unfortunately mine looked more like baby diarrhea than that gorgeous golden color. I added loads more turmeric which helped somewhat.

Also added black mustard seeds because I read somewhere that it was an "authentic" Sri Lankan flavor. Local tomatoes are shit, so I used canned. Then I used half the sauce for the salmon and mixed the rest with potatoes and mushrooms. I liked the potatoes and mushrooms better.

It was a little too tart but overall pretty good and I feel better than I've felt in a while. Going to try again today.

Just wanted to ask you all about "tamarind liquid." The Indian market had a bunch of dusty, creepy looking packages to choose from. I chose the one below (Tamicon tamarind concentrate) and mixed it with water. What did you all use?

I wish I could find that here. I did, once, though it wasn't that brand, but the rest of the time I have to buy a block of smushed up tamarind. Then you cut off a chunk and soak it in boiling water and smash it up more, then strain it to get all the seeds and fibre out. It's a PITA and it gets worse with time as the block gets harder and harder until it takes 10 minutes of sawing to get a chunk off.

I think I have a tamarind paste but I used to have that block of tamarind like Scrubb describes. I will try to remember to take a look when I can because if I got it (the paste) then Scrubb should be able to get it.

The Scrubb Method for tamarind extraction does sound like a major PITA. I wonder if the flavor is better than the concentrate. When I run out of concentrate I might try it. Or not.

I tried the recipe again yesterday. Used less tamarind, didn't use the black mustard seeds, and used fresh tomatoes instead of canned. Mixed it with potatoes, mushrooms, and garbanzos. It turned out better than the first try. In fact it was flippin' delicious.

I also cooked the mattar paneer. It turned out great as well. We both stuffed our faces like starved dogs.

Thanks again Veronica.

I just went and looked at the recipe I use (it's posted here somewhere) to see if it was different and it says to use:

50ml/2fl oz tamarind liquid (substitute with equal parts lime juice/brown sugar/soya sauce mixed)


I've always just globbed some paste in and not worried about the 'liquid' part of that ingredient instruction.

i used something like that. it wasnt hard. it was bendy.
just took about 2 tablespoons, poured some hot water on it and minced with a fork. then i put it through a sieve to get a smooth paste. it was the consistency of a tomato sauce.

Yeah, that's what I use, vron. It's not bad when you first buy it, but the longer the packet sits, the harder it gets. It's more trouble each time you use it until the last few times, it's very hard and a huge PITA. But my parents grew up during the depression and I am incapable of throwing it out when it's still "good" just because it's a PITA to use.

Bill, I haven't found it in Superstore's "ethnic" section but I don't check every time. We do have an East Indian grocery or 2 in town - will check them out.

Scrubb, maybe do it all at once. Put the entire package in a pot with a minimal amount of water and heat it up and simmer it on the stove until it's mush. Then zap it through your food processor until it's pasty or liquidy or whatever your preference and then freeze portions in small baggies or in an ice cube tray and bag the cubes, or something like that.

If I can't find a jar of concentrate/pulp, that's a good idea. Can't put it in the food processor, though, as there are seeds in it. It'll have to be mashed through a sieve. But only having to do it once would be fine.

Then zap it through your food processor until it's pasty or liquidy or whatever your preference and then freeze portions in small baggies or in an ice cube tray and bag the cubes, or something like that.

That's what I do except no food processor as mentioned that's a dumb idea.

The ice cube trick in particular is handy to add some Tamarind flavourto Noodle dishes & the like.

i can see lime/brown sugar making sense. but why soy sauce? that can change the curry flavour.

tamarind is sweet/sour. dont add soy sauce.

i would do lime/ brown sugar and maybe a bit of plum butter?
