Tomato Fish Recipe @

Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers
A different fish  gravy that uses a  lot of onion and tomatoes.  Tomato Fish  is a milder version and was slightly thicker than  regular  fish curry.

It is better to use a meaty white fish with less bones like red snapper, toman, thread fin, sea bass and many more.  You can  buy a whole fish then request the the stall to slice it for you.

After cleaning, the fish is coated with  lemon juice, chili powder and turmeric before it goes to frying pan for shallow frying.

Nest step, we are going to prepare the sauce by frying onion until it turns soft, adding chili powder  as per your liking  and turmeric. Add in tomato  and cooks until it  is mushy. this will take about 10 minutes. Top with water and bring to  a boil.

After the sauce is thicken, slide in the fried fish.  Allow to simmer for a few minutes before removing from heat.  Tomato Fish is ready to be served with  steaming hot rice or chapati.
