Fish Sodhi (Fish in Coconut Milk Gravy)


Can you now stop blinking your eyes? You better because fish in sodhi is not weird. Utterly no. Believe me. I made, we loved every bit of this Fish Sodhi. Idea pinched from a friend who kept insisting that I must try. I did. I can't be more food gram be happier. Tasted fab. Sodhi by the way is not a new department in my space. Remember (Plain Sodhi, Prawn Spinach Sodhi & Egg Sodhi)? Neither is fish (Ikan Asam PedasSalted Egg Yolk Fish & Thai Seabass). Nor coconut milk, which by far must be regarded as a favourite ingredient among us Asians (Thai Massaman Curry, Kerala Fish CurryNasi Pudina, Homemade Curry Mee, Carrot Stir Fried Coconut, Curry Chicken NoodleLong Beans Prawn Coconut & Laksam Noodle). Oh, coconut milk is also showcased in our desserts (Pandan Milk Jelly, Pumpkin Sago &  Coconut Red Bean Ice Cream). Alright, aside to all the long stories, lets get back to Fish Sodhi. A modernization of the humble plain sodhi, to make this fish sodhi, you better jump high and grab my this recipe. Fried fish tipped into infused with coconut milk and fresh turmeric gravy.


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
