5 Fish Curries From Around the Country That Are an Absolute Delight

India is surrounded by water on three sides and that gives us a lot of sea food. Hence there is no surprise that there are a lot of fish lovers in our country. Well west Bengal and Orissa are famous for their hilsa fish and prawn preparations while the South-India is quite famous for its king fish and crabs, lobsters, etc.
If you too are a fish lover, then this article will make total sense to you. Many of us actually don’t prefer having fish and the main reason to it is the odour of sea food and the patience needed to deal with the fish bones. But the recipes that I am going to be talking about are an absolute delight and I am sure that even a fish non lover will absolutely love them.


1. Fish curry with lotus stem- this is an authentic Kashmiri dish that is widely consumed in the state of Jammu and Kashmir. This recipe uses surmai fish fillets, ghee and cinnamon. This dish is taken right from India’s paradise and it tastes heavenly. Every fish lover has to try it out at least once.

2. Assamese fish curry- fish curry is not limited to the coasts of India, in fact it spreads right to the north eastern side of India too. This preparation uses rohu fish in a hot and spicy curry and a tangy marinade that is made with turmeric powder, fish masala, and mustard oil. All these spices blends together to give you a tasty fish curry that one cannot avoid.

3. Illishmacherjhol- this dish uses the famous hilsa fish in its preparation. It is the love of every Bengali and even non benaglis in this case. It is a very common preparation and is made in the house of ever Bengali. The tenderness of the fish makes it just melts in your mouth and the silvery appeal of the fish make it look quite unique. This is a must try for anyone who is visiting the state of Bengal.


4. Goan fish curry- this is made in the state of Goa and is eaten as a Goan delicacy. The specialty of this fish curry is the freshly made fish masala that is used in this curry. The masala is a mixture of coconut, garlic tamarind and garlic. This gives your mouth a spicy and tangy taste. This is much recommended and you should definitely give it a try on your visit to the state.

5. Doimach- this is another delicacy that has been picked out from the state of West Bengal. This curry uses yogurt in its preparation that gives it a very unique taste that is absolutely loved by all Bengalis. Because of the use of yogurt in the preparation, the curry tends to come out in a faded yellow shade. But that doesn’t compromise with its taste.

So, these were my personal favourite fish recipes that I have tried and I love a lot. I hope you like them too and give it a try soon.
