Sowndhale alle piyavu (adavu curry)

I got the fish “adavu/sowmdhale” after a very long time.  This is one of my favourite fishes.
Adavu/sowndhale             --  7 to 8 medium sized
Grated coconut                  --   1 cup
Red chilly                              --  10 to 12
Tamarind                              --  small piece
onion                                     --  1
ginger                                    --  1 inch
green chilly                          --   2 to 3
salt to taste
coconut oil                           --  1 or 2 tsp
·      Cut and clean fish and keep aside.
·      Finely chop onion, ginger and green chilly add little salt and smash with hand so that we get all the flavours together.
·      Grind grated coconut, tamarind and red chilly into fine paste.
·      Boil this in a mud pot with little water. When it boils add smashed onion, green chilly and ginger mix, boil for  5 minutes then add cut and cleaned fish boil it for another 5 to  minutes.
·      Switch off the gas pour coconut oil over it. Close the lid and keep aside for 10 to 15 minutes.
·      Sowndhale alle piyavu is ready to serve with hot steaming rice.
