Ingredients :

500 gms shark (slices)
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp ginger-garlic paste
6 tbsps grated coconut
6 dry red chillies
1 tbsps coriander seeds
1 pinch of aniseed
1/4 tsp poppy seeds
3 cloves
1/2 inch cinnamon
2 tbsps oil
2 green chillies (chopped)
2 onions (chopped)
1/2 cup tamarind juice
2 tbsps chopped coriander leaves


Apply salt, turmeric and giger-garlic paste to the fish slices. Keep aside for 1/2 an hour. Roast the coconut, clear the pan and roast the remaining ingredients (except the last 5) one at a time. Grind them altogether to a fine paste. Heat the oil, brown the onions, add green chillies and spice-paste. Stir-fry for 1 minute, add tamarind juice and finally the fish. Cook till fish is done, sprinkle coriander leaves and simmer for a second.
