A Typical Kerala Fish Curry
Kerala’s long coastline with numerous rivers and backwaters has contributed to many sea and river food dishes to be found in this region of India.
This curry is typical of the type you will find in Kerala being served in both small and large restaurants. Due to the weather the selection of spices available in South India are vast and I have included some of the more popular ones in this dish.
The beautiful yellow colour is created using turmeric which has been used in India for thousands of years and is a major part of certain types of traditional Indian medicine.
Coconut milk which forms the base of the dish is widely used in Kerala for thickening and flavour and comes from the coconuts which grow in abundance.
Just like any other recipe, each chef will have their own variation and this is mine for Kerala Fish Curry.
