This is a very interesting fish molee recipe inspired from Lathika George's cookbook titled The Suriani Kitchen . I tweaked some parts of the recipe and was very happy with what I ate !
I used 500 grams of Sole fillet , cut in finger sized pieces , which were marinated in 1 teaspoon salt , 1/3d teaspoon turmeric powder and 1 teaspoon red chili
powder along with a tablespoon of coconut oil .These were then stir fried in almost zero oil and set aside.
1 Onion Thinly Sliced.
1 Tablespoon Thinly Sliced Ginger.
1 Tablespoon Thinly Sliced Garlic.
2-3 Green Chilies ( Make slits ).
1-2 Sprigs Curry Leaves.
1 Cup Freshly Extracted Coconut Milk ( or use a can ).
Saute onions till light brown , then add everything but the coconut milk , saute another minute.Add half of the coconut milk , simmer gently for 2-3 minutes . Add the fish and the balance coconut milk . Simmer another minute or so , adjust flavors . I tweaked
with the juice of 1/2 a lemon at the end .Don't let the coconut milk boil at any stage.The original recipe also called for rice flour which I didn't add .
Serve with rice - its delicious !
