Tips for perfect fish curry

  • Add old tamarind(pazhaiya puli) for yummy taste and beautiful color meen kuzhambu.
  • Preferably add vengaya vadagam for seasoning. If not available, add fenugreek seeds and cumin seeds(jeeragam).
  • Add fish pieces after the kuzhambu becomes thick. Because fish will cook in 2 minutes. If you overcook the fish, the kuzhambu becomes water and tasteless.
  • And after adding fish pieces, do not over mix as it will make the fish break. Instead of mixing, you can swirl the wok holding it on both sides.
  • Adjust spice and salt as per your taste.
