  • 1.5 fillets white fish rinsed and cut into bite-size pieces (fresh or frozen and thawed)
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 2 green chilies sliced into strips
  • 2 onions medium, sliced into strips
  • 2 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon ginger freshly grated, or 1/8 teaspoon ginger powder
  • 6 curry leaves or bay laurel leaves, or kaffir lime leaves, or basil
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • lemon juice
  • 2 cups coconut milk unsweetened
  • 1 tablespoon ground coriander ground
  • 2 teaspoon ground cumin ground
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric ground
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder or 1 teaspoon of hot pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon fenugreek (Methi) ground

Or Instead of the 5 spices noted above

  • 3 tablespoon curry powder mix


  • In the preheated pressure cooker on medium-low heat without the lid, add a swirl of oil and then drop in the curry leaves and lightly fry them until golden around the edges (about 1 minute).
  • Then add the onion, garlic and ginger and sauté until the onion is soft. Add all of the ground spices: Coriander, Cumin, Tumeric, Chili Powder and Fenugreek and sauté them together with the onions until they have released their aroma (about 1 minutes).
  • De-glaze with the coconut milk making sure to un-stick anything from the bottom and incorporate it in the sauce. Add the Green Chiles, Tomatoes and fish pieces. Stir to coat the fish well with the mixture.
  • Bring to pressure on high heat. When pressure is reached, lower the heat and cook 2-3 minutes at high pressure (or for 5 minutes at low pressure). When time is up, release pressure using the Normal method – release vapor through the valve.
  • Add salt to taste and spritz with lemon juice just before serving.
