Soup Curry (Traditional Fare)
This is a very traditional fish curry from Kollam, Kerala. It’s a thin gravy preparation, I guess that's the reason its called SOUP CURRY!
Unlike the fish molee, this does not have any garam masala.
I’ve used fish head for this recipe.

Fish: 500 g
Coriander powder: 1 tbsp
Fresh green chilli: 12 slit
Ginger: 1” piece
Shallots or onion: ½ cup sliced
Turmeric powder: ½ tsp
Coconut milk: 1 cup (thin)
Vinegar: 1 tbsp
Salt to taste
Coconut oil: 1 tbsp
In a “curry chatty” put in the coriander powder, turmeric, green chilli, ginger, shallots & coconut milk.
Add salt to taste & put in washed & cleaned fish.
Now, cook till fish is done.
Last, add the curry leaves & coconut oil.
Take off fire & add vinegar.
Swirl the “chatty”.
This is usually served with rice, good with bread too.
