The best Seafood recipes of Maharashtra come from the coastal belt of Konkan and Malvan. Though I have been on a seafood staple since childhood, in Mumbai , the best Fish curry I ever had , was this Fish Ambotik , that my elder sister made for dinner, at her In Laws place! She is my true cooking Idol! Its from eating her delicious treats and watching her cook and bake that I developed a liking towards cooking, in addition to being a foodie! Years later, I still remember that taste ,  and this recipe is an attempt to recreate that magic!



  1. Marinate the fish pieces with lime juice and turmeric and keep aside.
  2. Grind a fine paste using all the ingredients for ground paste.
  3. Heat oil in a pan and add the chopped onion and saute till translucent. Add the ground paste and fry till it starts leaving oil.
  4. Now add 1/2 cup water and slip in the fish pieces. Simmer on low flame for 2-3 mins, till the fish is cooked. Garnish with chopped coriander and serve.
