Fish Curry

Tuna is  used  frequently to make curries here in the Maldives.  After making my home made  coconut based curry powder, I   decided to use it to make fish curry to serve along with Roshi ( local flat bread)

Recipe : Fish Curry (2)

1 ( 350g) fillet Tuna, cut into small cubes
1 large onion, sliced
3"  pandan leaf , cut into large pieces
1 sprig curry leaves
1/4- 1/2 scotch bonnet ( depends on how much heat  of chilli you like)
3 cloves garlic, grated
1/2 inch ginger, grated
3 tbsp huni havaadhu ( coconut based curry powder)
2 1/2 cups water
150 ml coconut milk ( canned or packed) or if using fresh,  thick coconut milk
 1/4 tsp tamarind puree or a pea size piece of tamarind.
salt to taste
 corn or sun flower oil about 2-3 tbsp.

Add about  small handful of the onion ( roughly 1/4 of the sliced onion) , garlic , ginger and the curry leaves into a wet grinder or blender  along with  pinch of salt and about 2-3 tbsp of water and blend to a smooth fine paste.

Heat oil, add the remaining onions, curry leaves and pandan leaf and stir fry till onions soften.    Add the blended curry paste mixture along with  the scotch bonnet peppers ,water and tamarind.

Bring to  a boil and then reduce heat, and add the fish cubes.  Let the mixture simmer till the fish is cooked through and the curry flavours develop .

Taste, add salt if needed and then finally add coconut milk.

Cook for another 2 minutes and switch off.

I have been blogging for almost 7 years now and I have to say I  am finally getting the hang of taking photographs. With the help of my hubby and the boys I have a lovely wooden board and some extra boards to make a setting. I prefer natural light so  I always move to wards the window. As you can see I dont use  a humongous camera although would love  one  a new one.

Speaking of new cameras was browsing around  when I came across this really  cool one , at first I thought it was  a phone but  its a compact camera  with 16 lenses and good low light performance  , that would be good when shooting photoes at night,yey!


  1. The curry is always a favourite. Yours looks really great, Nammi.

  2. The fish curry click is really nice. I suggest playing around a little on an editing tool to make it brighter and sharper, everybody does it! :) That camera looks interesting, especially to a person like me who has the itch to take clicks at night! Wondering what is the rate for it... hmm...

  3. I love any curry that comes with coconut milk:)
    I think such wooden boards are a common thing is every food bloggers house and when family is around to help nothing like it!!

  4. Fish curry is something I have to try! Awesome recipe!

  5. A curry is one of my favorite ways with fish, though I have never made one with tuna. I will keep this recipe in mind.
