DIRECTIONS:

1. Heat a pan with 2 tbsp oil. Add finely chopped ginger-garlic, finely chopped onion and curry leaves. Stir it well for 1 or 2 minutes in a medium flame. Add green chillies , cinnamon, cloves and crushed cardamom in a low flame. 

2 Add kashmiri chilli powder, turmeric powder, pepper powder and coriander powder. Stir it for a few seconds in a low flame till the raw flavor vanishes.

3. Add 1 cup of thinly coconut milk ( 2nd extracted coconut milk ), the fish, salt, 3 nos gamboog and put a lid on it. Cook it for 15 to 17 minutes in a medium flame. At this point gravy will reduce...( Take care fish doesn't get sticked to the bottom.)

4. Now add Thick coconut milk ( 1st extracted coconut milk ) and stir it gently. Finish the cooking after one or two minutes.

5. Serve it hot or warm...


TIPS:

* Instead of fresh coconut milk you can also use ready made coconut milk powder. I used here fresh coconut milk.
* You can also use tomato instead of gambooge.
* You can use garam masala instead of cinnamon, cloves, cardamom.
* Gently stir, otherwise fish may crumble.`
