Treat your ingredients with care...

  • Fish — Ensure the fish is fresh and of high quality to achieve the best flavor and texture.
  • Indo chili peppers — Adjust the amount according to your spice preference. You can also substitute with milder chili peppers if desired.
  • Cumin powder — Toasting the cumin seeds before grinding them into powder will enhance their flavor.
  • Turmeric powder — Be careful while handling turmeric as it can stain surfaces and clothing.
  • Ginger paste — You can use freshly grated ginger instead of ginger paste for a stronger flavor.
