Green Chilly- 1or 2 according to your requirement
Ginger- 1 small piece
Garlic- 6 small pieces (Allikal)
Turmeric- Half teaspoon
Tamarind- According to your need, a small piece will do
Curry leaves- According to your need
Salt-As needed
Coconut oil- 1 teaspoon

Clean and cut the fish. Apply salt, turmeric and chilly powder on the fish and leave it to marinate for about 15 min. Cut tomato, green chilly, ginger and garlic into small pieces along with some tamarind juice and half cup of water. Boil it for about 5 min and then squeeze the tomato pieces to get their juices out. This will make the curry more viscous. Now add the fish pieces that were left to marinate into the bowl and boil for another 5 minutes. Add curry leaves and spray one teaspoon of coconut oil over the curry. That's it, your Veloori Mulakilitath/ Kerala fish chilly curry is ready.
