Baby Shark Masala

Ingredients to make Baby Shark Masala

  • 1/2 kg small shark/baby shark
  • 2 Cups Grated coconut
  • 8 peppercorns
  • 3 cloves
  • 1 inch cinnamon stick
  • 6 Kashmiri dry red chillies
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 10 Garlic cloves
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon coriander seeds
  • 2 medium sized onions
  • 4 tablespoon oil
  • 1 marble sized ball of tamarind
  • For marination:
  • 1 bunch cilantro/coriander leaves
  • 1 inch ginger
  • 15 garlic pods
  • 1 tablespoon turmeric powder
  • 2 tablespoon red chilli powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt

How to make Baby Shark Masala

  1. Clean the shark and remove its skin entirely. Chop into 1-2 inch pieces. I got the shark cleaned, de-skinned and chopped from the fish stall at the supermarket.
  2. For marination: Wash the shark pieces and apply turmeric powder, red chilly powder and salt. Make a paste out of coriander leaves, ginger and garlic pods by adding sufficient water or 1/2 cup water. Apply this to the chopped shark pieces.
  3. Keep this aside for 30 Min's to 1 hour in the freezer.
  4. For the gravy: Chop the onions into small pieces and keep it aside.
  5. In a pan/kadai/wok, add oil and roast the spices mentioned above like peppercorns, cloves, coriander seeds, cinnamon stick and red chillies for 2 Minutes.
  6. Once roasted, add 3/4 of the chopped onions and fry till they become pinkish. Add chopped garlic and fry till raw smell of garlic goes away.
  7. Add grated coconut and roast it low flame till the coconut gets brownish.
  8. Add tamarind, stir and immediately switch of the gas.
  9. After switching off the gas add turmeric powder and mix well.
  10. Grind this to a gravy of medium consistency by adding 1 cup water or as needed after cooling. Keep it aside.
  11. Now in the same wok which was used to roast the spices and coconut, add 3 tablespoon oil and fry the remaining chopped onions. Once they turn pinkish, add the marinated shark pieces and fry for 10 Minutes.
  12. Now pour the ground gravy into this onion shark mixture and let it get cooked for 30 Minutes on low flame. Keep stirring in between to prevent it from sticking to the bottom of the wok/kadai.
  13. After 30 Minutes or after the shark pieces are cooked, add salt to taste and garnish with chopped cilantro leaves.

My Tip:

Note: Add salt slightly lesser than needed as shark contains salt in it. Be sure to de-skin the shark in fish stall itself. The skin is very hard and is difficult to remove at home. If the shark does not get cooked within 30 Min's, simply remove the shark pieces from the curry and and pressure cook it for 5-6 whistles by adding 1 cup water. Later the pressure cooked shark pieces can be mixed in the gravy. Serve with rice, pav or chapatis.
