the Really easy Fish curry

Fish Curry ( Chepala Iguru )

This is the standard fish curry in Andhra, and perhaps the simplest.

Preparation to serve three (six pieces of fish)

STEP 1 : Preparing the fish

Onion, medium sized



½ inch piece


6-7 cloves


1/2 tsp

Cumin seeds

1/2 tsp


½ tsp

Chilli powder

1 tsp

Garam Masala

½ tsp


To taste

Make a coarse paste of all the ingredients and apply the paste liberally on to the cleaned and sliced fish

STEP 2 : The final preparation

Onions, medium sized, cut into thin slices


Green chilli


Curry leaves

6-8 leaves


2 tblsp

Coriander leaves

Fresh cut

Heat oil in a heavy pan. Add onions, curry leaves and red chilli. Wait for onion to turn a golden brown. Add the fish pieces and cook till the fish becomes light brown in color and takes away the raw smell. This is a delicate operation and the best way to achieve this without damaging the fish would be to gently swirl the vessel.

Add water and cook on a low flame till the gravy gets a thick sauce like consistency. Garnish with chopped coriander leaves

Serve hot with steamed rice.
