Kozhuva Manga Peera pattichathu/ Anchovies with green mango


Tomatoes from my lil garden
The wind is changing lately.Though the days are still fiery the occasional afternoon showers,are surprisingly  giving me a whiff of the monsoon rain back home. The heat of the day ,mixed with the later showers is doing a good deed to my Patio vegetable garden too. A feeling of bliss..thats what i experience now.I am sure if the plants could talk , they would say the same ...

My mother makes excellent meen and manga koottan a heavenly combo, and so does my Grandma (check out meen manga curry and chemmen manga curry)..Todays recipe is inspired by those two kindred spirits,who i admire the most . Kozhuva or anchovies as they call it here is a small protein rich fish , which i have a craving for all the time; some other names are podimeen , chooda, netholi etc.In my grandma's  kitchen, a "manchatti"(claypot )full of this dish,will always be in the Aduppu (the traditional  stove), making it warm all the time like an ever warm oven. The claypot cooked food has a special taste to it, i love it so much that i brought one  Manchatti with me, last time when i came back from my vacation in Kerala...So here comes a traditional claypot cooked Fish and mango Stir fry with grated coconut and Green mango for y'all to njoy...

Recipe for Nadan Netholi Manga Peera pattichathu
Ingredients:-
Kozhuva/Anchovy - 250 gm
Green mango - 1 medium
Grated coconut - 1 cup
Shallots/onion chopped - 1/2 cup
Green chili - 3
Ginger - 1 inch piece
Garlic - 5 cloves
Crushed black pepper corns - 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Red chili powder - 1/4 tsp
Curry Leaves
Mustard seeds
Salt to taste
Oil
Method :-

Clean and cut the head off the fish, if you are using fresh anchovies. I used the frozen ones from Indian grocery store, so it was already cleaned.Wash it with some vinegar or lime juice and salt to get rid off that fishy smell.
Cut green mango into medium pieces. I peeled the skin off, but you can keep it if you like .
Crush onions, ginger, garlic and green chiles in a coffee grinder or mortar and pestle.
Mix grated coconut with turmeric powder and red chili powder and combine it well with your hands.( Or you can crush it along with the above mix)
Heat oil in a pan( i used manchatty- clay pot) and add mustard seeds. When the pop up add curry leaves and crushed masala.Saute for 2 minutes and add green mango and fry for 3-4 minutes and add grated coconut mix. combine it well and add fish, 1 cup water and salt to taste. 
Cook it covered till it is done and the water is evaporated, for about 20 minutes. Uncover it and simmer for another 6-7 minutes to make it dry.Sprinkle crushed pepper corns and mix well.Serve warm!

Cheers
Sarah

Anchovies peera is something that is made quite often at home....I love this curry...my only problem is the bone....I patiently remove that tiny part and then eat, although everyone say that its bone is totally edible and has nutrients....

Btw...Nice click...the dish looks really good....:)
