Ayala (Mackerel) Mappas


Ingredients:

  • Fish (Ayala)1/2 Kg
  • Onion 2 big
  • Garlic 5 to 6 pods
  • Ginger 1 big piece
  • Green chilly 5 to 6
  • Thick coconut milk 1/2 cup

  • Corriander pdr 2 Tbsp
  • Turmeric pdr 1/2 Tbsp
  • Garam masala 1 Tbsp
  • Vinegar 1 Tbsp
  • Curry leaves
  • Mustard
  • Salt
  • Oil

Cut the fish into medium pieces and keep it aside. Heat oil in a kadai and add mustard seeds. When it splutters, add the thinly sliced onion, ginger, garlic, green chilly and curry leaves. Saute it till it turns to a light brown colour. Mix corriander pdr, turmeric pdr and garam masala in little water and make a paste. Add this paste into the above sauted onion and roast the gravy till it turns to a dark colour. Pour the semi thick coconut milk and mix well. When it starts boiling, add the fish pieces. Reduce the heat and cook it. When it is completely cooked, add vinegar and thick coconut milk. Mix slowly and cook it for few min. Do not over boil. Garnish it with fresh curry leaves and tomato pieces.
