Tomato Fish ~ Punjabi Version !

I completely adore this tomato based curry for many reasons.This is in fact a preparation best suitable with the fish fillets (the most handy ones for people like me having the habit of storing fish fillets).Secondly it comes as my savior when I am too occupied to fix an elaborate dinner.Though Nita Mehta-well,this is her recipe-calls for freshly made tomato puree for the recipe,I must advise you to go on with ready-made puree which can bring out the best with color and texture.But but,plz keep in mind,you have to marinate and shallow fry the fish before assembling with the spices..Just a bit of planning,an exotic fish curry to offer with hot chapathis/rotis !

Ingredients

500 gm fish fillet,cut into medium pieces
Oil,as required to shallow fry the fish

Marinade

1 tsp kashmiri chilli powder
1 tsp coriander powder
1 tsp jeera/cumin powder
2 tbsp lemon juice
salt,as required

For curry

200 gm ready-made tomato puree or 6 medium tomatoes blanched and pureed
3 tbsp oil
1 tbsp garlic paste
1.5 tsp kashmiri chilli powder
1 tsp corinader powder
1 tsp garam masala
2 tbsp kasoori methi
1 tsp sugar (to adjust the taste)
Salt,as required for the curry
few coriander leaves,to garnish

Method

Clean and wash the fillets and marinate with the mentioned spices in particular section for 15 minutes.Heat oil in a pan and shallow fry just to make it bit rigid so that it won’t break.Be careful not to make them crisp.In a wide pan heat oil and roast the garlic paste till light brown.Add tomato puree to this and mix well.Reduce the heat and add the chilli,coriander,garam masala powders and kasoori methi to this.Increase the flame and bring it to a boil.Check the seasoning and adjust with sugar and salt.Slowly add the fried fish pieces and let it simmer for 5 minutes.Mix carefully and garnish with coriander leaves.Serve hot with chapathi or roti.

    A very different prepartion for fish , though I've never really liked fish cooked in tomato puree , I'm more inclined to the Keralite pallate of kudampuli falvored fish 🙂

    Look yumm !

    Anil,kasoori methi is dried fenugreek leaves.This is a special ingredient to flavor most of north Indian dishes.Available in almost all gourmet stores.

    Did not look as tempting in the pan as it is in your pic. But was reasonably good I guess when I tasted.
    But perhaps a bit of more gravy in my pan.
    I used tuna fillets .

  22. i so wish I could grab the bowl from the pic and relish it, kasoori methi is my favourite dried herb and a small sprinkle of it changes the dish many fold. Love this pnjabi style fish!
