- Salted dried fish - approximately 1 cup measure
- Fresh grated coconut - 1 cup
- Green chillies - 6
- shallots - 4
- curry leaves - few
- tamarind - marble sized ball
- Oil - 5 tbsp
if the fish is too salty you need to soak it in water for 30 minutes to remove some of the salt and drain the fish .
Heat oil in a pan and fry the fish until it is crisp.
Remove fish from oil and drain on paper towel.
Add all of the ingredients into a food processor or blender and blend until combines and coarsely ground.
The salted fish usually has enough salt so you will not have to add more salt.
