The method

Hi I'm Mallika
Live life. Love curry that's my motto. Monkfish is one of my favourite types of fish so I hope you like this gorgeous curry. If you're hungry for more check out my website Quick Indian Cooking for more delicious curries and tasty recipes.

Here's how to create my Kerala Style Monkfish Curry 

  1. Peel and roughly chop the onions. Soak the fenugreek leaves in a tablespoon of hot water.

  2. In a large wok or saucepan, bring the oil to heat on high. When it sizzles around a hot spoon, toss in the cinnamon stick, chopped onions and ginger garlic paste and sauté for 10 minutes until the onions are soft and golden.

  3. Next, add the curry leaves, turmeric and chilli and sauté for another five minutes. Then stir in the coconut milk, tamarind paste and fenugreek leaves (along with the water they are soaking in) and cook for about 10 minutes on a medium to low heat.

  4. Meanwhile, cut the monkfish into bite sized pieces. When the time is up on the curry, drop the pieces in, cover and simmer for a couple of minutes. Serve immediately with steaming hot basmati rice
