6. Time to add in the spice powder mixture, so remember to adjust the lame to lowest possible flame. Otherwise chances are there to burn the spice powders.

For making the spice powder mixture:
         In a small bowl add coriander powder +red chilly powder + turmeric powder+ pepper powder+ 2 tbsp of water + salt & mix well.

7. Cook this whole mixture for  2-3 minutes.

8. Now add the soaked kudampulli and again cook for 2 -3 minutes.

9. Add needed amount of water as per our gravy requirement and bring it to boil.

10. Once it starts bubbling add in the cleaned fish pieces and cook for few minutes. Once fish pieces are cooked switch off the lame and drizzle a spoon of coconut oil and close it with a lid till the time to serve.

11. Enjoy it with steamed rice..!


1) Clean the fish pieces thoroughly and don't forget to pull out the intestines. Otherwise the whole curry till taste sour.
  2) Soak the kudampulli in water before starting to make the curry.

3) Make the spice mixture ready ahead.

4) Once fish pieces are added avoid using a spoon as it will break the fish pieces. So mix by creating a rotating motion of the vessel.

5) Feel free to adjust the spice powders according to the taste of your family members.
