How to cook Kerala style Fish Molee/Moly :
In a bowl, take some water and add a tsp of salt and vinegar in it. Now rinse the fish pieces in it. Drain off excess water and remove the fish pieces on to another bowl.
Marinate the fish pieces with turmeric powder, pepper powder, lemon juice and salt. Keep it in the fridge for at least half an hour.
Shallow fry the fish pieces until they are almost cooked. Remove it on to a plate lined with paper towel to absorb excess oil.
Heat oil in a pan. Add cardamom, cloves and cinnamon. When they splutter, add ginger, garlic, curry leaves and green chillies. Add sliced onion, salt and mix it.
Once the onion turns tender, add garam masala and pepper powder. Give it a mix and add the thin coconut milk. Let it come to a boil.
Add the medium coconut milk and fried fish pieces. Let it get heated until it starts to boil. Add the thick coconut milk and stir it well.
Now line the sliced tomatoes on top of the curry. Cover the pan and let it cook on low heat for another 3-4 minutes.
Remove it from the heat and serve it hot with Appam, bread or chapati.
