How to make Meen Aanam / Fish Curry With Coconut Milk

  1. Thoroughly wash and clean fish by adding little turmeric powder to water. This will help in removing raw smell from fish.
  2. Combine tamarind pulp and tomatoes (cut into half) and squeeze using your hands. Add in few shallots along with green chilies.
  3. To this add red chili powder, kuzhambu, milagai thool. Add enough water. Combine well.
  4. Heat oil in a pan and drop in fenugreek seeds, shallots, garlic and curry leaves. Saute for 2 minutes. Add above made mixture and bring it to boil.
  5. Once this starts to boil, gently drop in cleaned fish and stir once. Cook covered on medium flame.
  6. In a jar add coconut, roasted khus khus and grind to smooth paste by adding little water. Set this aside.
  7. When the fish is well cooked add in above made paste and stir gently. Bring this to just boil.
  8. Do not over boil kuzhambu after adding the coconut milk or paste. Doing so may spoil the taste of fish. Watch out carefully.
  9. When the fish is completely cooked, season with salt and garnish with fresh coriander and turn off the flame.
  10. This tastes best when served along hot rice, rasam, any poriyal, fish fry’s and papad.
  11. NOTE: This will tastes superb, when re-heated and served next day! It makes an excellent combo for idly, dosa, aarisi maavu roti & chapatti Oh my! even upma will taste yum!! [Drooling already!]
My Tip: You can use any variety of fish for making this aanam. You can also squeeze the coconut milk alone from the above mentioned paste and use it for this aanam.
