Aavoli Meen Thenga Varutharacha Meen Curry/Pomfret fish cooked in Spicy fried coconut is one of the favorites of my recipes. You can use king fish, prawns & mackerel with the same recipe. Note that the below provided is my-style recipe in simple and easy way.

The coconut has to be fried without oil until brown. The easiest way is to use a microwave to fast track the activity. To fry quarter grated coconut, keep the coconut in a flat plate in the Microwave for 4 to 5 minutes. If coconut did not get fried yet continue microwaving for one-one minute until coconut turns very light brown color.

Aavoli Meen Thenga Varutharacha Meen Curry is a very spicy curry which goes well with parboiled rice (Palakkadan Matta Rice), roti and various other breads.
