Baby Shark & Radish Curry


Well, fish again because fish is the brain food for my half-half. Indeed, fish has been showcased in a number of recipes (spicy fried fish, Nyonya fish curry, fish mango salsa and green fish curry) and today, we have the sura meen or baby shark, quite a fond variety among the Indians. Baby shark we fry first and then add into the curry made with  lots of ginger, garlic, spices, radish, tomato and curry leaves.

Ingredients
500g baby shark - remove skin and cut into bite sizes
1 radish (about 400g) - remove skin and cut into medium size chunks
10 cherry tomatoes (or 1 sliced tomato)
1 tsp ginger paste 
1 whole garlic - break into individual cloves, remove skin and cut into two
6 shallots - sliced thinly
2 tbsp fish curry powder (or as needed)
1 tsp turmeric/kunyit powder
10g(1 small ball) tamarind/asam - mix with 1/2 litre of water and extract juice
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp fennel seeds
3 sprigs curry leaves
Oil as needed
Salt for taste

Method
Mix fish with ginger. Deep fry till crispy.
Dish out and keep aside.
Leave about 4 tbsp of the same oil and in it, saute garlic, shallots, tomatoes, curry leaves, mustard seeds and fennel seeds.
Pour in the tamarind juice and simmer.
When curry is heated through, add radish and continue simmering.
Once radish is cooked, add fish and and season with salt.
Stir and simmer just for a minute or two and remove from heat.

  3. I ate Shark meat once in a long long time. And once, I did saw the dead baby shark in whole at the wet market and I felt pity to them. :(

    Anyway, Shark meat are nice to eat but maybe we should support "Kill no Sharks". ;P

  12. I haven't had baby shark, though I've seen it offered in China. Regular shark is definitely very tasty, and a radish curry sounds delicious.

  17. Thanks again for all the sharing everyone. Baby shark is so common over my place and the taste is good I must say. However, you can substitute it with any other fish you prefer.
