Shark Curry (Mori Ambat)

April 18, 2012 Posted by

This is one of the tastiest Konkani Curries and features on  my list of favorite Konkani dishes.  Comes a close second to crab curry !!
Mom is here and hence she brought along Shark pieces from Mumbai. Shark is a difficult fish to clean as its skin needs to be removed so remember to ask the fish monger to clean and cut it for you. Shark is also available in dried form but here we have used the fresh fish.

Here is my moms  Shark Curry  recipe 


  1. Wash the fish and keep aside

2. Dry roast 1tsp coriander seeds, 7-8 red chillies, 1/2 inch cinnamon, 1 clove for 2-3 mins. Make it into a fine paste together in a grinder along with 1 cup freshly grated coconut, 1 lemon sized ball of tamarind and a pinch of turmeric.
3.Take 1 tbsp oil in a pan and Add 1 finely chopped onion. Fry it till it is translucent and then add the shark pieces.Add 1 cup of water and let the shark pieces cook. This may take around 10 mins on medium flame.
4.When the shark pieces are cooked add the paste. Add salt to taste. Adjust for water depending on how thick you want the gravy.
5. Cook for another 5 mins of medium flame or till the gravy boils.
6. Serve with rice.
