Fish Curry With Cumin And Coriander


Hello friends, welcome back to my cooking space again. Today I’ll be sharing a simple fish curry recipe that I use to make now and then. It’s mildly spiced but has a strong flavor and is healthier too. I have used a fish called Roopchanda here, but you can use any other fish too. It’s best had with steamed rice, potato stir-fry, and poppadums. So let’s start making it—


  1. Fish(Any fish) -250 gms
  2. Onion – 1(big)
  3. Ginger-Garlic Paste -1 tsp
  4. Turmeric Powder -1 tsp
  5. Red Chilly Powder -1 tsp
  6. Coriander Powder -1 tsp
  7. Cumin Powder – 1 tsp
  8. Garam Masala – 1 tsp
  9. Tomato Puree – 2 tbsp
  10. Dry Mango Powder or Raw Mangoes – 1 tsp or 1( chopped.)
  11. Salt – According to taste

For the tempering:-

  1. Nigella Seeds – 1/2 tsp
  2. Cumin Seeds – 1/2 tsp
  3. Fenugreek Seeds – 1/2 tsp
  4. Vegetable Oil – 1 tbsp


Step 1


Wash, cut and marinate the fish with some salt, turmeric powder and garlic paste. Chop the onions and green chillies. Scrape and cut the mangoes and shallow fry the fish. Keep it aside.

Step 2

Take a kadhai. Add the tempering ingredients to it and let it splutter. Now add the chopped onions and green chilies and saute for a minute.

Step 3

Next add the masalas, salt, turmeric powder, red chilly powder,coriander-cumin powder,garam masala and tomato puree, dry mango powder and saute everything for three minutes. Now add water for the gravy. You can add chopped raw mangoes here, instead of dry mango powder.

Step 4


After boiling the gravy for three minutes, add the fried fish and let it simmer on medium flame for four minutes.

Our Fish Curry With Cumin And Coriander is done. Garnish with chopped coriander, lemon wedges and serve it with steamed rice.
