Fish kulambu

Fish kulambu is my all time favourite. My hubby home town is tuticorin. Tuticorin is coastal area and famous for its harbour. we get fresh fish always. We used to do shala meen fish frequently. Small variety fish will taste good for kulambu.


shalai meen- 10 to 15/any small variety fish
small onion- 10 to 15
tamarind- big lemon size
kulambu podi- 2sp
curry leaf-10
fennugreek seeds-1/4sp

For grinding

coconut-1 cup grated
big jeera-1/2 sp
pepper seeds-1/2sp
small onion-5

*Clean the fish nicely. Atlast rub it with salt so that the raw smell will be low.
* Cut onions into small pieces.
*First grind all the given items for grinding and pour it in the vessel in which u r going to prepare the kulambu. extract the tamarind juice and pour on the grinded mixture. Put kulambu podi and salt for taste.keep this aside.
*Pour oil in a pan, put fennu greekseeds wait till it changes to light brown. Add onions and fry it nicely. Put curry leaf. keep the flame in sim. Add chilli powder and all the oil will turn out red. Now pour the onion fried with oil in the kulam which u have kept aside.
*Allow the kulambu to boil nicely.If your kulambu is watery. Allow it to thick. After it gets thick now time to put the fish in it. Allow it to boil it for sometime and keep in lowflame at last. with in few minutes fish will get boiled soon. So be careful after putting the fish, Fish should not break that is mainthing is fish kulambu.
 Mainly before putting the fish check the consistency. If u want thick fish kulambu. Make the gravy thick before putting the fish itself. After if u leave it to become thick your fish will get broken.If you follow this method yummy fish kulambu is ready.
Goes well with hot rice, idiyappam, dosa
