Fish cooked in tamarind coconut gravy. Normally in South India, any fish kuzhambu is simmered in tamarind sauce, with Kerala being an exception. They add little bit of sweetness to their preparation, by cooking them with coconut milk. Back in India a good friend of mine use to make this gravy and happened to learn this dish from her. Original recipe includes lemon juice, for which I substituted with tomatoes. Just to suit my taste I've included seasonings like cumin and fennel seeds, which are purely optional.

Indian Broad Beans ( Avarakkai in Tamil / Chikkudukai in Telugu / Sem in hindi / Avarekayi in Kannada / Avara in Malayalam ) curry made in South Indian style, little baby prawns or salad shrimp adds a classic homely touch to this dish. This type of broad beans is termed as Naatu avarakkai in tamil, looks thin and broad with soft seeds inside, but the one which we get in US is called seema avarakkai and looks different, long and thick and might take little longer to cook. Sometimes the closest substitute which can be found is Scarlet runner beans. Haven't explored much about this veggie, will keep an eye and update the exact name. Here are some links from wikipedia, which I found useful while googling…
