The Recipe of Sambhar-Fish Curry

This curry is a flavourful combination of sambhar – a lentil-based vegetable stew originating from the Indian subcontinent, and mackerel fish.

Mackerel fish is high in omega-3 oils; and are found in both temperate and tropical seas, mostly living along the coast or offshore in the oceanic environment.

The Recipe:

Quantity of fish: 5 medium size mackerels

Slice each mackerel fish into 3 portions before marinating the fish pieces with ½ tsp. of turmeric powder and salt – according to preference of taste.

  • Sauté finely sliced pieces of 3 medium onions in adequate quantity of warm, any mild-flavour, vegetable oil; add mashed pieces of 4 big garlic cloves to the mixture,
  • Combine the translucent onion blend with finely sliced pieces of 4 medium tomatoes, sliced pieces of a generous handful of spinach leaves, and sliced pieces of 3 guntur chillies for mild pungent flavour – these are small, sundried  chillies and are plum red in colour; and  have a likable flavour along with high level of spiciness  (you can also opt  to use any other chillies – according to preference of flavour),
  • Blend the melted mixture with sambhar masala (- entire content of a 10 g packet), add two glassful of water for curry, add the marinated fish pieces to the curry, and cook the mackerel pieces for about 10 minutes in low heat.

Serving size – Approximately 4
