Would it be accurate to say that is a typical “caldeen” recipe for fish? I loved this simple curry. I think the addition of fresh curry leaves makes the difference in taste.

maria November 16, 2011 at 4:11 pm

Hey Roy,

It’s similar to Caldeen fish recipe… however its mildly spiced than Caldeen as generally in caldeen recipe you add peppercorns and coriander seeds along with tamarind. Yeah fresh curry leaves gives a great flavor and aroma to this curry. Thanks and keep cooking :)

Love,
Maria

Oh man, this curry is so simple and yet so very tasty. I was worried about boiling the cocunut milk because I heard it curdles. Instead, I gently simmered the curry. I had some leftover curry and added scallops, mussels,shrimp and squid. It was sooooo good, that my brother and I cried because it reminded us of our late mum’s cooking. This is the first blog I’ve come across that has outstanding Goan recipes. I see a cookbook author writing authentic home food recipes in your horizon :) Please continue on your endeavours.

Thanks I am happy your curry turned out tasty. Yes you are right the coconut milk curdles. So you should add thin coconut milk first once it boils than lastly add thick coconut milk and switch off the gas. Oh gosh how you guys manage cooking! sooner Or later you guys will be a great cook. Thanks for your words they are quite encouraging and positive. To write a cookbook is my vision thanks for sharing it :) ……. I will keep adding a lot of posts actually I have to share a lot of Mumbai Recipes as well.

Thanks,
Maria

This was a very tasty curry. I love Goan veg and non-veg food. Do you have a bhangra (fried mackerel) stuffed with recheiade masala (sp?) recipe?

maria November 14, 2011 at 3:54 am

Hi Xavier,

Thanks a ton. I too love Goan food as well as other cuisines. I do have a stuffed pomfret (paplet recheado) recipe. Here is the link you could use same stuffing for Mackerels as well.http://www.flavorsofmumbai.com/goan-pomfret-frystuffed-pomfret-fry/

LOve,
