    Thank you Mam
    your explanation was so good and acurate, that i followed the receipe exactly and the taste was delicious,
    but my husband says he can see so many onions, but the taste is perfect,
    should i reduce onions and do the same with all other ingrediants as same proportions, would that make a difference in taste, the taste is perfect he just wants onions to disappear

      If you fry the onions a little longer,it well blend well with the masala and you wont see them once the gravy is cooked. Also try mincing them finely… but if you still think its too much you may always reduce some and adjust to your needs, using small sambar onions will enhance the taste quite a bit, so do try with them. I would still keep the rest same, as onions give little thickness to the gravy and if you cut them drastically your kuzhambu will be slightly watery consistency, so make you don’t cut too much. Thanks Priya for trying recipes from my page and getting back with a feedback, it actually motivate me a lot! Thanks again.

    Your recipes are just simply amazing….

    I live out here in Canada – what kind of fish would we recommended to be purchased at the grocery for this type of dish?

    Thanks again!

      Hello AT, normally i would prefer King fish, mackeral, tilapia, catfish and any variety bass. Check our fish names in tamil here and choose the one which you are comfortable with.

    Hi Mullai,

    I like ur recipes very much..what size of onions do you use for this recipe. i used the big purple onions and the onion taste dominated more..hence the question..

      What type of fish did u use in this recipe? Actually collecting some info on that, quite hard to find fresh fish here.

    Hi Mullai,

    ur fish curry recipe is very good, but is there any way to get thick gravy served for a number of people? Coz in my family, there are many, who are good eaters and they say the curry amount is very less and if i add more water to get more curry, they say it is like rasam, very watery.

    Plz do suggest.


    1. Mullai


      This recipe is for 2 to 3 servings, so you have change the portions depending on number of persons. Just adding water will not solve the problem.  If you have like 6 people, just double the quantity mentioned and try. Better luck next time. Thanks.
