Mamidi Chepala Pulusu / Tangy fish curry with mango
Usually fish pulusu means its cooked with tamarind pulp. Recently came to know from a friend that its also cooked with mango. Then I gave it a try with raw mango and it tasted awesome. Something different from the regular pulusu( gravy). Here is the recipe.....
Tilapia pieces 8
Green chilies 4
Curry leaves 6
Raw mango pieces 1 cup
Fenugreek seeds 1/4 sp
Tamarind pulp 1 sp
Chili powder 2 sps
Haldi 1/2 sp
Ginger garlic paste 1 1/2 sp
Cumin powder 1sp
Coriander powder 1sp
Garam masala 1/4 sp
Chopped cilantro 1/4 cup
Salt to taste
Oil 1/4 cup
Wash the fish pieces well and marinate with little salt, haldi and 1sp chili powder.
In a small pan dry roast fenugreek seeds and make a powder out of it.
In a wide pan heat oil and add curry leaves, slit green chilies and saute for a minute.
Now add chopped onions( tastes better if u add onion paste) and cook till golden brown.
Meanwhile in a different pan heat 2 sps oil and fry the marinated fish for a minute.
Now add tomato puree,mango pieces, fenugreek powder, 1sp chili powder, haldi , cumin powder and coriander powder to onion paste.
Add water to tamarind pulp and add to the gravy.
Also add garam masala.
Mix well and also add some more water to cook further.
When the sauce is boiling add fried fish pieces and cook further till oil appears on top.
In between turn the fish pieces very gently. Do not turn the fish pieces for more than 1 time. As they are very soft they tend to break.
Finally garnish with chopped cilantro.
Serve hot with rice.
