Fish Roe Varuval

Fish Roe is my favorite, those days my dad used to buy fish roe every week, mom will add to fish curry and cook. It will be very soft and yummy but after some time it was so difficult to get, the moment I saw fish roe in supermarket today I never think twice and bought a few pieces. I made varuval with this fish roe, the steps are simple but requires three types of cooking-boiling, frying and stir fry with masala. 


500g of fish roe
1 onion sliced
1 tsp cumin seed
1 tsp fennel seed
1/4 cup of grated coconut
1 1/2 tbsp of fish curry powder
1 1/2 tbsp of dry chili powder
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1 sprig of curry leaves
1/2 tsp tamarind paste
1 tbsp ginger garlic paste
1 tsp of soft brown sugar
1 tsp of chili sauce
1 cup of water
5 bird eye chili
Salt to taste
Oil to fry

Boil fish roe until its firm, drain and cut into smaller pieces

Shallow fry the boiled roe

Use the same oil that have been used to fry the roe, now fry ginger garlic paste,
onion, curry leaves, bird eye chili, fennel and cumin seed

Add in fried roe and pour water, let it boil

Add curry powder, chili powder, turmeric, tamarind paste, salt let simmer

Add brown sugar, chili sauce and let gravy thickens

Dry roast grated coconut and keep aside

Add roasted coconut and let gravy completely thicken 

Now our varuval have dried up and ready to be serve

Now our Fish Roe Varuval is ready to be served
