Andhra Chepala Pulusu/ Andhra Fish Curry

Marinating Fish:

Fish - 1 kg pieces (please read tips)
Turmeric powder - 1 tsp
Chili powder - 3 tsp
Salt to taste

Mix these together and keep aside.

Ingredients:

Green chillies - 6 no. (slit lengthwise)
Curry leaves - 3 sprigs

Onion - 1 large (diced, fried in 2 tsp of oil and then pureed) or Shallots - handful (peel and sliced thinly)

Ginger and Garlic paste - 1/4 tsp each
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Red chilli powder - 1 tsp
Masala powder - 3 tsp
(please read tips)

Tamarind - Big lemon size
(add water until the tamarind is immersed, microwave for 2 mins, and squeeze to make pulp)

Coriander leaves - handful
(chopped finely)
Oil - 7 tbsp

Proceed:

1) Heat oil in a non-stick Kadhai, add green chillies and curry leaves and fry well, keep few for garnishing

2) To the above add onion paste or sliced shallots and fry for 5 mins. on medium heat.

3) Add gg paste, turmeric, red chilli powder and masala powder and fry for few mins. Mix well.

4) Layer the fish pieces on top, close the lid and cook for few mins, turn over carefully, rotate the dish and cook for few more mins. by closing lid.

5) Add water until fish pieces are immersed, keep the heat on high, when it is started boiling, simmer and cover for 10 mins.

6) Add tamarind pulp, close the lid and cook until oil floats on top and the raw smell of tamarind disappears, do not mix the curry with the spatula instead carefully hold both the handle of the dish and rotate.

7) Add coriander leaves and check for salt, cook it for 5 more mins and serve. While serving, garnish with curry leaves and green chillies which is been fried earlier.

Serve with Plain White Rice. 


Tips:

* For this dish use shallots, if you don't have then do as above. I would recommend to use shallots to get that authentic taste of Andhra Chepala Pulusu. For shallots no need to fry or grind as normal onion, you can slice them thinly and fry in oil directly, just follow point 2.

* When u have added fish pieces, do not mix with spatula, instead rotate the dish or otherwise fish becomes mushy.

* For Indian curry's do not use Salmon. Any other firm fish will do. For Indians use Bochu Cheppa, Sheelavathi, Pulsa variety.

* Only for River fishes (ex: Bochu cheppa, Pulsa, Rohu) we do pulusu style. For Sea fish ( ex: Tella Sanduva or Silver Pompfret, Vanjeeram) do iguru type, means with out adding any tamarind to it, but replacing with my chicken masala powder to the above method.

* Pulusu and Iguru type curries have their own masalas, so do not add cloves and say pulusu. In here we omit the cloves and cinnamon.

Masala Powder (no need to roast spices):

Coriander seeds - 3 tsp, Poppy seeds (white) - 1 tsp, Cardamom - 4 no. {Grind all these together in to fine powder}.


********For New Zealand Fish:

Blue Warehou and Mullet are good for Fish Curry or Pulusu. Trivally and Red Snapper is good for Fish Vepudu or Fry.

Meaning:

Mullet = Koyyingalu (we call these in telugu language, when they are small we call them katti chepalu, big we call them koyyingalu)

Rajani,

Thanks for the recipe. I am a vegetarian but my husband is a non-vegetarian (from Kerala). He loves any kind of fish and this hopefully will be a great introduction to the Andhra Cuisine for him. Will have to try it out when we get fish next time.

Regards,
Nav

Sharmi said...

Please respond, when you get a chance. ?

Thanks,

Sujatha

Rajani said...

Hi Sujatha,
Thanks for your lovely words. Do try and let me know.

Regarding fish, best bet would be finding them in farmer's markets. I am sorry I can't help u much.
U can try fresh fish fillets in local super markets too.

K K said...

Rajani garu

I tried this recipe yesterday with tomato puree (since i like taginess from tomato instead of tamarind) and it turned out great with sea fish!

However, i wanted to kno if there is any other gravy variety in andhra fish food... and why don't we use garam masala?

Rajani Rayudu said...

Hi KK,
For Traditional Andhra dishes we won't use garam masala if it is Tamarind based dish. It's ok If there is no tomato or tamarind based curries using garam masala.

Using different variety of fish in curry's it changes entire taste, like Sanduva iguru, Nellore chepala pulusu (this one uses tomato), Katti chepala kura, Methadalu kura, Pulsa kura.

These are all gravy dishes.

Hope! you understood what I am saying. Thanks for dropping by and thank you for letting me know how it went for you.

cheers

moviesandcoffee said...

Hi Nice blog. Very colorful and good. I will try your fish pulusu today. It is the same way that my mother does . But I am wondering whether I should do this with catfish or tilapia or salmon. I wish I could find the one that we get in INDIA here in USA. Anyways will give it a try. I saw other blogs where they had added tomato to this dish but I dont think it tastes good. will go with yours. Again grt colorful blog. Keep rocking.

Rajani Rayudu said...

Hi MAC,

Thanks for visting my blog, actually you should change your name to MAC :-).

Salmon is good for tandoori style cooking, some how I don't like in any gravy or pulusu dishes. Tilapia is too soft for this kind of pulusu, so i don't use that. Cat fish might work for you.

I don't use tomato either, but for nellore pulusu I definitely add.

You are lucky staying in US, most of the shops I have seen in LA they are selling nice Indian fish near Pasadena.

Best of luck!

ajay said...

HI

Thanks for the recipe.I am a male who like this dish a lot.I tried cooking this dish using this website and it was a lot helpful.now i know how to make this dish.Although the fish in US are not as good,but the dish i made was not bad.In Andhra pradesh this dish is considered as a tough one since only few people could cook chepala pulusa perfectly.but i tried this one using ur recipe and i thought it was perfect.

Thanks again
ajay

Rajani Rayudu said...

Hi Ajay,

Thanks for your feedback. We can't beat Indian fish, but has to compromise the fish we get here. The key is to know the fish before you even start cooking, like how fast it cooks, whether tastes good in curry, how firm it is. Fresh is always the best......

I am glad it turned out well for you, Keep up your kitchen adventures and do try other dishes too from my blog :-)

cheers

Vijaya said...

Rajani,

I followed this recipe with little modifications, it came out great. My husband who is not too fond of sea food had two fish fillets with dinner.

I am really fond of my mom's cooking, I hope to learn about lot more about your mother's cooking style through you.

I used fresh wild Sea Bass for this dish. For folks in USA, i think Sea Bass is a good option for pulusu.

Have a wonderful day,
Vijaya

Rajani Rayudu said...

Hi Vijaya,

I am happy to read you both liked the dish. I googled the sea bass, but it looks so scary. May be people who haven't tired might give it a go.

Pray Divine for a prosperous Life for you.
If possible, try to include Home made pickles like Gongura, Dondakai with Bera pottu etc...
As love food, may be send few of my mother preparations in few days, So friends can enjoy it.

Hi mam,
Am Kiran ksihore frm Hyd recently found ur site accidentally.But later Nw it has become my menu card to watch out for todays special in my kitchen.Am 22 years old away frm home on education purpose.Ur site has helped me lot in learning and even getting appreciation frm my parents as a good cook.Actually this credit goes to U.I tried liver fry,egg iguru,tomato pappu,fish fry......
They are really good at taste I always get satisfies with andhra style food.Really a great great Thanks to you for helping Us.
Thank you very much mam.AM expecting any kind of specials which can be prepared in couple of minutes and used as breakfast or supper.Or some curries .

Rajani Rayudu said...

Hi Kiran,

Good to read your nice comment. 22 yrs ki vanta chesthunanru very good, amma valla ninchi appreciation vasthundi ante meeru baga chesthunnaru. Keep it up. Regarding your query - 2 mins curry ante fatafatt ayyevi chicken 65, egg bhurji, chicken pulao, prawn curry, breakfast ki opt for upma, pesarettu, or even ready made mix like mtr idli mix. If you have idli stand then make the chutney in bulk saripada and keep in fridge. chana curry is also easy to make for evenings, left overs can be used for puri chana. egg bhurji left over ayite next day chapati ki bavutundhi cheyatem kastem anipiste ready made tortillas vuntayi kada margarine raasi cook it on tawa for few secs on both sides. Mostly weekend wash the spinach leaves cut and keep in freezer bags and use for dal dishes more easy or even cook the dal with leaves, but do not add any popu to it and keep in fridge, when you are ready eating do seasoning stuff for required amount of dal and have it, this way dal tastes fresh too. or just make tomato curry with vadiyalu or omelette. or even daddojanem or lemon rice for one pot meals.

will post if you want recipes for these. see ya.

Hi Rajani garu

Thanks for awesome chepala pulusu. Achu maa amma cheppinatle undi....I have a suggestion.. Add fried a tea spoon of menthulu(methi)and cumin in place of cardamom to the masala powder. It smells and tastes very good. Smell of cardamom doesn't go with fish curries.. my opinion

Cheers
afsar

Rajani Rayudu said...

Hi Afsar,

ya I think if you add fenugreek and cumin then no need of cardamom they both tastes differently. We have freinds from telangana region they add menthulu jeelakarra podi in fish pulusu where as I add cardamom too. but both versions tastes good. Thanks for your tip......

Dear Ms Rajani, thank you for the great fish curry. every thing is fine. Your last recomendation serve with yogurt is strange. Ayurveda advises that fish products and dairy products dont go together and ayurveda texts say leads to skin conditions. so avoid dairy products like milk yogurt cheese etc on the same meal.

Rajani Rayudu said...

Hi Anonymous,

Good point!!!!! I removed yoghurt thing now. We used to do that when we were kids not eating yoghurt.

Can we add yoghurt while cooking fish? is it not advisable.

Dear Rajani,

Your Kodi Kora is a great hit here in South Africa. Thank you so much.

Some queries regarding this fish curry:

1. Can I use Rohu fish?

2. How thick must the fish slices be?

3. Shallots - how many - number please?

4. Which oil must I use? Which is the most authentic oil to use?

5. Masala powder - must I roast the spices before I gring them?

6. Step 4 - must I turn the fish piece physically?

7. How much salt will you add for 1 Kg fish?

cut the fish pieces into 1/2 inch pieces.

we are south Indians peanut oil or sunflower or rice bran oil is preferred but not olive oil nor sesame or mustard oil for this dish.

turn the fish pieces holding with a spatula.

try adding 1 and 1/2 tsp salt. you can always add less and see. lastly if it is less salt, add accordingly.

hope these clear your doubt, happy cooking and let me know your feed back. Thanks!

cheers
