Goan Fish Curry

During  my recent visit to Goa,  it was a wonderful opportunity for us to taste the typical Goan dishes. I loved some of their dishes like this fish curry the most, infact so perfect with good the amount of spices goes very well with steamed rice.

I have used King fish for this curry.

Time taken  : 30 minutes
Serves : for 4 pax


Fish – King fish  or pomfret - 400gms 

To Grind masala

Kashmiri Chillies – 6 nos.
Coconut grated – ½ cup
Ginger – 1 inch
Garlic – 3 cloves
Pepper Corns 6 – 8 nos.
Whole coriander seeds  - 1 tsp
Methi Seeds – 3 nos.
Turmeric powder – ¼ tsp
Cumin seeds – ½ tsp

Other Ingredients

Salt as per your taste
Green chilly – 2 nos slit
Lime size tamarind
Onion  - finely chopped small – 1 no


Slice, clean fish with salt and wash several times  nicely and add some salt and keep the fish aside.

Grind the masala ingredients mentioned above, in a mixer with a little water

Add some oil into a cooking pot, add onions and fry  for few minutes till light colour, then add the masala and add some water.  Add salt and put in the chillies, tamrind  (as per your taste).

Once the entire mixture starts to  boil, then you slowly slide in the fish pieces. Cook in low flame till the fish is cooked completely.

Goan curry is ready to serve.
