Fried Fish in Coconut Gravy

This is such a versatile dish that it can be accompanied with anything and is sumptuous down to the last bite.

Seer Fish fillets - 500gms
For the marinade
Chilli Powder - 1tbs
Ginger garlic paste - 1tbs
Coriander Powder - 1tsp
Black pepper Powder-1/2tsp
Turmeric Powder- 1/4tsp
Salt to taste

For the gravy
Ginger garlic paste - 1tbs
Coriander Powder - 2tbs
Turmeric Powder - 1/4tsp
Chilli Powder - 1/2tsp
Onions - 2 thinly sliced
Tomatoes - 1 finely chopped
Curry leaves - a sprig
Coconut milk - 1cup

Combine all the powders to smear onto the fish. Allow the fish to be marinated for an hour. In the meantime heat oil into a pan and saute the onions till transparent, then add the curry leaves and fry for a minute. Add the ginger garlic paste and saute for a minute. Then add the coriander powder, turmeric powder and chilli powder and saute till the masala powders are well combined and the fat separation happens. Then add salt to taste, add the tomatoes and fry till the tomatoes are softened a bit before adding the coconut milk. Bring the gravy to a light simmer. Take it off the flame and keep aside.
Into a another frying heat oil enough to immerse the fish and fry till evenly brown on both sides of the fish. Once the fish is fried, carefully place each fish back into the coconut gravy and put the pan back onto the flame and let the fish simmer for 15minutes. If one desires more coconut milk could be added. Serve with dinner rolls/ bread/ rotis/ parathas/ steamed rice and a fresh salad.
