  • Grind together coconut, small onion, fennel seed / perumjeerakam, (turmeric, coriander and chilli )powders in half a cup of water. Grind well until you get a fine thick  paste (very important) . Set aside.
  • In a non stick vessel or earthen pot, add chopped tomato, green chilli and chopped raw mango /pacha manga (Do not peel the skin of mango). 
  • To this, pour the prepared coconut mixture along with required salt. Add warm water according to the consistency needed.
  • Now switch on the flame and cook for about 8 minutes over a medium flame. The masala / spices must be cooked enough to get rid of a pungent spice flavor. So cook until the raw smell goes off . Stir occasionally. Add hot water if required (do not add normal water). Check for salt.
  • When done, add the  fish pieces and swirl the vessel. Do not mix with a ladle or spoon after adding the fish slices.
  • Close the lid and cook for few minutes or until fish is done. It  will take around 5 minutes only. Do not allow to cook for long after adding fish as it will spoil the fish . Remove from flame.
  • In a separate pan heat 2 tsp of oil and add 1 tsp sliced small onion / shallots. Saute well until golden and then add curry leaves. Switch off the flame.
  • Pour this seasoning over the prepared curry and close the lid. Set aside for few minutes or until you serve. This gives a fine flavor the curry.
  • Serve along with hot steamed rice or chapati or paratha etc.
