Pulimuchi is a sour and spicy Mangaloren Style masala gravy dish cooked with fish or chicken.
The gravy can be dry or semi dry as per one’s choice. This is a finger licking dish that can be served with Rice or Neer dosa.
Here I have used Pomfrets.
For the Masala Paste
20 or more Red Guntur Chillies as per the spiciness required - Soaked in water for 30 minutes
2 Onions chopped
16 Garlic Cloves peeled
1 small Ginger chopped
1 Green Chilli
1 1/2 tsp Tamarind Paste
10 Pepper Corn
1 tsp Cumin seeds
1 tsp Coriander seeds
Salt to taste
Grind the cumin, coriander and pepper till it is in powder form. Grind the onion, ginger, garlic, green chilli and 1/2 of the red chilli along the powder into a fine paste. Add the remaining red chillies, tamarind, salt and little water and grind the all ingredients together into a thick fine paste.
For the Pomfret Masala Gravy
4 medium size Pomfret marinated with Turmeric and Salt for 15 minutes
Few Curry Leaves
1/2 cup Coconut Oil
Take a flat pan. Add the oil and heat it. Add the masala paste, stir fry it for 2 minutes. Add the curry leaves. Continue to stir fry for another minute. Spread the masala on the pan. Place the pomfrets in the masala. Apply some of the masala on the top part of the pomfret too. Cover and let it cook for 5 minutes on a low flame. Remove the lid. Turn the pomfrets. Cover and cook the pomfrets father till the oil from the masala releases and the pomfrets are done. Serve the Pomfrets with Neer Dosa.
