How about having some fried mackerel bites tonight, cooked in a rich sauce? For this hot and spicy sauce, you’ll need onion, garlic, chili, and ginger for hotness and curry with garam masala for the spiciness. Tomatoes and coconut milk will only make it thicker and richer.




Add the salt and turmeric to a smaller bowl and mix them. Disperse this mixture into a tray and coat the mackerel pieces with it.


Heat 1 cup of vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat, then fry the mackerel pieces on both sides until golden brown and crispy looking. Set aside.


Add the mustard seeds to a skillet over low heat, cover with lid, and cook until they start snapping.


At this point, you can add 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil and the onion. Cook it until tender, then, while cooking and stirring, add the garlic, ginger, red chili, curry paste, canned tomatoes, coconut milk, water, salt, and garam masala. Cover with lid and simmer for 20 minutes.


Add the mackerel and cook a little more.


Serve it with rice or your favorite side dish.

Well, I love to eat! I guess I always did. Tasty foods, traditional foods, fast-foods, healthy foods and, again, not so healthy ones. You name it. However, in time I kind of built on this habit and, slowly but surely, I began to turn toward the Mediterranean cuisine and, occasionally, even the Mediterranean diet. I am a curious and inquisitive person. So, pretty soon, I started trying to recreate what I’ve tasted or seen. At first, this proved to be hard work for my better half, as she supervised my new experiments. But lately, results really started to show, so wish me luck!
