Ok, so we’re being rather general, but there are too many different types of Indian fish curry to tell you about. So, here are the best South Indian Fish Curries we’ve tried in a while.
Imported in to London from Delhi in 2005, this culinary institution highlights the best in fine Indian Cuisine. Taking diners on a ‘culinary journey along India’s Grand Trunk Road’ – the hectic highway tracing diagonally from Delhi to Kolkata – Moti Mahal serves up beautifully executed Indian dishes inspired by the regions and cuisines along this well-trodden route. Slightly off the Grand Trunk Road, is their Chemeen Chettinard Jumbo Prawn curry, a gently spiced coconut curry hailing from Cochin in Kerala. Large fresh prawns swim in a luxuriant coconut curry, seasoned with curry leaves, tamarind, turmeric and a hint of chilli.
You come to Carom for indulgent Indian food, and for what is usually a lighter curry comes a bowl of gluttonous creamy dish full of heat and flavour. The Alleppy Fish Curry takes us back to the South Indian coast, being both authentic and indulgent. Overflowing with chunks of fresh sea bass, the delicate coconut curry sauce is seasoned with ginger, curry leaves and mango. Make sure you order a basket of their chewy Indian breads to mop up the moreish spicy sauce.
The Goan fish curry at Gaylords deserves a mention as one of the best South Indian Fish Curries in town. Tilapia – a beautiful fresh water fish – forms the main body of the dish, which has been gently simmered in an authentic Goan concoction of tamarind, kashmiri chilli powder, turmeric, then topped off with the all-essential coconut milk. Delicious.
