Fish curry with Mango/ Manga Meen curry

Fish of your choice - 250 gm ( Sardine,Mackerel,Prawns etc)I used Chooda (Dried prawns and mackerel is the best for this recipe )
Grated coconut - 1/2 cup
Unripe Mango - 1/4 of it, sliced (depending on sourness )
Green chillies - 2-3 split
Turmeric powder- 1/2 tsp
Chilli Powder- 3/4 tsp
Coriander Powder- 1/2 tsp
Fenugreek seeds/Powder- 1/4 tsp
Ginger - 1 small piece, crushed
Coconut Oil
Curry leaves 
Method 1 :
1. Wash and clean the fish. 
2. Grind coconut with all powders to a fine paste
3. Transfer the cleaned fish , mango pieces, green chillies, crushed ginger and few curry leaves to a chatti/vessel  with enough water to cover the fish pieces.Add salt. Cook till the fish is done.(10-15 minutes)
4. When the fish is cooked, transfer the coconut paste to it and cook for 2-3 minutes in low heat .
5. Pour 1-2 tbsp of coconut oil ,with curry leaves .Remove from heat. Serve with rice

Method 2 : You can cook the fish , mango pieces, green chillies,ginger and coconut paste together with enough water and salt  for 20-25 minutes in a vessel/chatti. Pour in coconut oil and curry leaves.But I dont like over cooked coconut in curry.It gives the curry a different look .So I follow the method  of adding coconut paste at the end .It gives a creamy effect.
