Meen Peera (fish Cooked In Coconut Gravy)
This is a curry that I have not seen prepared in many homes in Kerala. It is a cross in between a curry and a stir fry. My mom says she learned it from my dad's side and her family does not cook fish this way. My in laws prepare in this style so I believe this preparation is common to the Southern part of Kerala. It is a quite simple and quick and preserves the true flavours of the fish as it has few spices to corrupt he real flavours of fish. Sardines and anchovies commonly used for this preparation and it is a must to have one agent that is tangy be it tamarind, raw mango or green tomato.
