Goan Fish Curry

Almost the staple food of Goa along with rice.

INGREDIENTS:3 Pomfrets - cleaned and cut into pieces (approx 9-10 pcs depending on the size of the fish)
Walnut sized lump of tamarind
1 large onion sliced
1 large tomato sliced
7-8 dry red chillies
1 teaspoon garlic paste
1 teaspoon ginger paste
1/2  coconut grated
1 tsp coriander powder
2 tsp cumin powder
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
2 green chillies slit
Hot water for gravy (approximately 2 cups)
Salt to taste

Soak the tamarind in 1/2 a cup of hot water for 10 minutes. Now mash the tamarind with your fingers to mix it well into the water. Strain through a sieve to extract all the pulp. Keep pulp aside.

Put the onion, tomato, coconut, ginger, garlic, dry red chillies, all the spices and the tamarind pureĆ© into your food processor and grind well to make a smooth paste (masala).  In a deep pan add 2 cups of water and let it boil, once the water boils add the ground masala and green chillies in the water.  Reduce the flame to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes. Add salt to taste.
Gently add the pieces of fish to the gravy and cook for 10-15  minutes. Do not cover the pan at any time during the cooking.  Turn off the fire and serve immediately with plain boiled rice.
