Fish Molly/ Fish Molee/Kerala Style Fish Stew

A very unique fish curry or stew from Kerala, unique in taste, color and flavor. The medium spicy, light yellow in color and mild  coconut flavored fish stew  stand out of the rest. Fish Molly/ Fish Molee/Kerala Style Fish Stew is made with onion, coconut milk, tomatoes , green chilly and turmeric powder.

I have used salmon to make this dish but I prefer to use seer fish or pomfret. I thought I had seer fish with me in the fridge, when it was time for me to the dish I realized that I had no seer fish or pomfret in the fish. Lucky me, I had a couple of slices salmon to rescue me,  otherwise I would have to run to the super market to get some as I have made rest of the prep ready for the molly.

I hope you all will try out this fabulous Fish Molly/ Fish Molee/Kerala Style Fish Stew at home and drop me a comment in the comment section below.
