Fish curry is delicious in Tamil cuisine, with mild tanginess and spiciness. I have shared few fish curries but this one is little different than all the others, since I have induced garlic and small / pearl onions. Pearl onions and garlic has their own taste and when combined with this curry gives a delicious taste and attractive color.
Garlic Fish Curry / Poondu Meen Kulambu had mild tanginess, spiciness and little sweetness. I have used Seer Fish / Vanjaram Meen, you can also use king fish (fish with less bones goes out well for this curry).
Health benefits of Seer Fish: Seer fish / Vanjaram Meen are very good source of Omega 3 fatty acids which helps keep arteries open and allow blood flow smoothly. Also Omega 3 has anti-inflammatory effects which helps in sinus, osteoporosis and arthritis.
How to select the best Seer Fish: The fish should have dark flesh or muscle, also the color of the fish indicates the oil content in the fish. Always go for a fat Seer fish which has less fat whereas the lean and pale fish has lots of fat.
