The most delicious, flavourful and spicy fish karahi! Guaranteed that this will be the best fish karahi recipe you will ever need! ;)
500gm fish fillet of your choice, cut into pieces
Marinate the fish for at least 2 hours in a paste made from some salt, red chili powder, drop of garlic paste and juice of 1 lemon.
2 onions, chopped fine
4 tomatoes, chopped
3 tbsp. yoghurt, whipped
3 green chilies, chopped
1 tsp. garlic paste
1 tsp. ginger paste
salt to taste
1 tbsp. roasted whole coriander seeds, then crushed roughly
1 tsp. roasted whole cumin seeds, crushed
2 tsp. red chili powder, adjust to taste
juice of half a lemon
some chopped coriander leaves
½ tsp. garam masala
Heat some oil and fry the fish pieces for 2-3 minutes on each side in batches, just to seal them up. Remove and set aside.
In a separate pan, add quarter cup of oil, fry the onions until almost golden, then add the ginger and garlic pastes and the crushed cumin and coriander. Fry for a few seconds then add the chopped tomatoes and cook on medium heat until the tomatoes are cooked and thick and the oil comes out from the sides. Add the whipped yoghurt and red chili powder. Cook for a couple of minutes until the yoghurt is well-blended with the tomatoes, and then add the fish pieces and the green chilis. Stir once, add the salt, lower the heat to very low, cover the pan tightly and let the fish cook for about 10 minutes.
Open the pan, mix the fish gently to avoid breaking the pieces, then sprinkle the coriander leaves, garam masala and squeeze in the fresh lemon juice. Simmer for a few seconds, then turn off the heat and serve hot! :)
