SAAYE MASHALE WARI MACHI / GREEN MASALA FISH CURRY


This is one of the fish preparation from the Sindhi Cuisine.. It has a delicious and flavourful gravy made with mint and coriander masala. This is usually served with Khichni ( Sindhi Khichdi ) which is rice and split green moong dal cooked together. Dry version goes well with rotis as well.



Ingredients :
Fish .... 1/2 kilo (surmai or any fish available )
Oil ...... 4 tbsps
Salt .... to taste
Turmeric powder .. 1/4 tsp
Coriander powder ... 1 tsp
Cumin powder .... 1/2 tsp
Garam masala powder .. 1/2 tsp

For Green Masala :




Coriander Leaves.....1 cup
Mint leaves ........... 1/2 cup
Green Chillies........2-3
Onions................1 chopped
Tomatoes...........1 chopped
Garlic.................7 to 8 cloves
Ginger ...............1 inch piece


(Grind the above ingredients to make the green masala.)



Method:
1. Wash the fish slices and marinate them with salt. Set aside for 1 hour.
2. In a flat bottomed pan heat the oil and saute the ground green masala until the oil separates.
3. Now add the salt and the spice powders (add salt carefully as the fish is already marinated with it )
4. Rinse the fish slices and add them to the masala. Stir carefully sauteing the fish slices on both sides.
5. Add 2 cups of water (or as much gravy you prefer ) Bring to a boil and simmer for 5-7 minutes depending on the thickness of the slices. Fish cooks very fast.
