Fish Molee Recipe – Kerala Style Fish Curry by Archana’s Kitchen


  • To begin making the Fish Molee Recipe, firstly wash the fish cutlet pieces and season with salt. 

  • In a heavy bottomed pan, heat some oil on medium flame. Add cumin seeds and let it crackle. 

  • Add chopped onion and saute until the onions are translucent. Add garlic, ginger paste and saute until the raw smell of garlic and ginger goes away.

  • Add in the chopped tomatoes and saute until the tomatoes are mushy and oil starts to leave from the sides. This will take 3 to 4 minutes.

  • After 3 to4 minutes add in turmeric powder and red chili powder, mix well and pour a cup of water into the pan. 

  • Once the water reaches the boiling point, lower the flame, add coconut milk and the fish pieces.

  • When the fish is fully cooked, add lime juice and vinegar. Add appropriate amount of salt and give the curry a good stir. Turn off the flame.

  • Serve Fish Molee along with Appams or Steamed Rice for a simple weekday Lunch. You can also make it for your weekend Lunch with other Kerala recipes.
