Fish Sodhi (Fish in Coconut Milk Gravy)


A light Indian soup/gravy, Sodhi is basically enhanced with coconut milk or can be said that milk is the essential-core ingredient. A simple sodhi is nothing more to simplicity and sure, you can add veggies for wholesomeness if you feel like making an extra veggie side dish.(Sodhi - Coconut Milk Gravy)  Also,  the Prawn and Spinach Sodhi  and Egg Sodhi  are another style to sodhi, today I am featuring fish sodhi. A modified version, one which was shared by a facebook friend. She however prefer to remain anonymous, thus I have to respect her decision. To make this fish sodhi, marinated fish is fried and keep aside. Then we make the coconut milk gravy - elevated with fresh turmeric instead of turmeric powder, spring onion instead of curry leaves and some ginger for freshness, fish is later added in.


Ingredients
For the fish
2 medium size tenggiri/Indian mackerel - cut into bite sizes
1 tsp cornflour
1 tsp riceflour
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp plain curry powder
Salt to taste
Oil for frying

For the coconut milk gravy
1 cup thick coconut milk
1 tomato - slice
1 medium size red onion - slice
1 red chilli - slice
1/2 inch ginger - slice
1 tsp fenugreek/halba seeds
1 inch fresh turmeric/kunyit - remove the skin and crush
Lime juice - per taste
2 stalks spring onion - slice
Salt to taste
Method
Marinate fish (see for the fish) with the ingredients except oil.
Keep aside for at least half an hour, later deep fry, remove and keep aside.
Simmer 2 cups of water with turmeric in a pot. 
When heated through, scoop out the turmeric we don't need any more.
Then add tomato, onion, ginger, chilli and fenugreek seeds.
Simmer, pour in coconut milk, add fried fish and salt. 
Gently stir and just after 2-3 minutes, remove from heat.
Combine in spring onion and lime juice.
