    It looks yummy. I am from kerala. The only thing i like to mention ( not in a negative way. Just saying). We keralities have an aversion to adding coriander leaves to our fish. Especially in my ammama’s cook book it’s highly frowned upon. We add plenty of curry leaves though 😊😊

      Hi Dolores, I’ve added coconut paste in my recipe which is fine gound fresh coconut with water. You may substitute with thick coconut milk, which you will be adding at step 6. Hope this helps and thank you so much for your feedback!

        Thanks Mullai! Noted ! Spent the whole morning cracking, peeling, grating and freezing coconut! I must be the only person in Spain doing this…ha, ha, ha. We dont use cocnut at all for cooking, except the grated dried packed version for a few sweets.

          Hahaha… hey you are not alone, I do the same when i find fresh coconut in market. Fresh coconut does make a difference compared to dry, don’t worry its all worth it when you finally get to taste the dish! I possible send me click pls, thanks!

      Hello Jaee, thanks for visiting my space and for your valuable suggestion & comments. Adding pepper to this curry sounds interesting and would like to try that too, Thanks again for the suggestion!

    My friend used to dry roast freshly grated coconut with little sombu/perunjeerakam(fennel seeds) until it gives out an aroma ,grind it with little water and add it at the last five minutes of cooking the dish.It turned out wonderful.
