Mangalorean Fish Pulimunchi | Easy Recipe
Fish Pulimunchi
Share This :

Puli means tangy/sour and munchi means chilli. This explains that the pulimunchi gravy is sour and spicy. Tamarind is used to impart sourness, and red chilies to make it spicy. The tamarind from Mangalore is significantly sour from the one that we get in other parts which imparts a great taste and colour to the curry.

This recipe is exquisite and does not require any complex preparations and as it is said the best things in life are simple. Using red chilies and other dry spices, a masala paste is made and fish is cooked in this paste along with tamarind pulp and water. Finally oil and curry leaves are added to temper the dish.
