Goan Red Fish Curry

Hi All,

I tried Goan Red fish Curry as an experiment this Sunday. I actually wanted to make prawns but my husband already made Butter Garlic Prawns a day before.

Anyway, I am Bhavna, Raj's wife and he insisted me I post few recipes on this blog as I am also fond of cooking. I generally like to cook desserts and cakes and puddings but my first post is going to be this wonderful and spicy fish curry from the sunny beaches of Goa. :-)

Now, I was little apprehensive about doing this because though I love fish, my punjabi hubby and mom-in-law love their kukkad. But thankfully it came out very good. The taste was different coz of the different ingredients. Anyway, let me take you through how I made it. It is very simple!

Goan Red Fish Curry Recipe:

  1. Fish cut in medium sized pieces. I used Rohu fish. You can pick any fish.
  2. Coconut milk in 2 bowls. One thick and one thin. Just add little water in thick milk to make it thin.
  3. Turmeric Powder
  4. Salt
  5. Cumin Seeds
  6. Chopped ginger and garlic.
  7. Sesame Seeds
  8. Dried Red chillies. Preferrably Kashmiri.
  9. Onions.
  10. Black peppercorns.

  1. First, marinade the fish in salt and turmeric powder. Leave it for 15 minutes.
  2. Now tawa fry this fish on a non stick pan. Let the golden color come and ensure fish is cooked.
  3. Now, Grind all the masalas together (from 5 to 10 S.No.) to make fine paste.
  4. Now heat oil in the pan and cook the masala till it releases oils.
  5. Now add the thick coconut milk and bring to boil and then let it simmer for about 10 minutes.
  6. Now add the cooked fish in gravy and cook for 5 minutes.
  7. Last, add the think coconut milk as per the consistency you want. Then cook it for another 5 minutes.
  8. Garnish with chopped coriander.
  9. Serve hot with Buttered Rice. I have posted recipe for Buttered rice in another post.

Here it is, you spicy Goan Red Fish Curry. The taste of cocunut milk is what makes it different from what we are used to in North India. And it is amazing.
