Dinner – Fish curry with coconut cream (Fish Molee)

I love fish and I am so blessed that my baby loves fish, too. Fish is a good source of protein. It contains less fat, and it’s so nutritious. I consider fish to be the healthiest protein for my family. This is one dish that we can’t live without. The creamiest gravy fish curry over hot cooked rice is something I can describe as “paradise”. It always amazes how these simple ingredients combined and turned out to be so delicious.

Ingredients: (4 Serving)

300 gm Fish – discard bones and cut into big chunk (Use any firm fresh fish like seer fish or salmon)

1 Onion- sliced

3 cloves Garlic- chopped

1 stick Fresh ginger (about 2 inches)- sliced

1 green chili- slit to half

1 Tomato- roughly chopped

1 tsp salt

1 Lemon Juice

1 tbsp Turmeric powder- optional

3-4 curry leaves – optional

1 can Coconut cream (250 ml)

1 tbsp Oil

To cook:

Marinate fish fillets with turmeric powder, salt and lemon juice. Keep aside for 10-15 minutes.

Heat the oil and sauté onion until soft, then add curry leaves (if you have), green chili, garlic and ginner and fry for few minutes. Add half of the coconut cream and 1 cup of water and bring to boil. Add marinated fish and tomato and cook for 5 minutes or until fish is cook but not over done. Add the rest of coconut milk, check for seasoning and cook further for few second.

Serve with steamy hot rice or if want to enjoy it with dinner rolls, be my guest!

      Hi Tisha,

      Thanks for stopping by my blog. Hope my future posts keep you comming back. We are going to Thailand this weekend, so I expect to share a lot of interesting stories soon. I’ve just linked your blog to my blogroll. Hope we have many wonderful things to share in the future.


  • Wow! This dish looks delicious! Thank you for sharing! 🙂

  • I would certainly love this with a lot of rice. Curry is my favourite, especially with coconut cream. With fish…it’s just so healthy.

    Tes, I think fish is the healthiest protein as well! Other than nuts and soy, that is. Nuts and soy have more fat, but the fat in them is very good for your heart.

    Your curry looks awesome!…if I were to make it at home, what vegetable sides would you prepare with it? I never would have guessed curry could be this simple.

  • andresrcastello

    Looks delicious! Would I have to go to a specialty market to find the curry leaves?

  • vmacandcheese

    Tes, this looks so delicious — and so simple! Thanks for sharing (and for stopping by my blog this morning, too).

    If you don’t have access to curry leaves, can good quality curry powder be substituted? Or is it better to omit altogether?

    • Tes

      If you don’t have curry leave, just don’t use it. This recipe doesn’t really require curry powder or any other spices. The ginger, garlic and coconut will do the magic. Use fresh fish and season well, then it will be so perfect. I hope you enjoy it.
