Kerala Green Curry of Marlin


Due to popular demand: here’s  a recipe for an especially delicious green curry. This has been cooked with fish, but it would no doubt be delicious with chicken too. Enjoy!



  • 1 large brown onion
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 2cm round knuckle of ginger
  • 1 tsp fennel seed
  • 1 tbsp coriander seed
  • 1/2 tsp black peppercorns
  • 3/4 tsp ground turmeric
  • 80g macadamia nuts
  • 2 bunches of coriander leaf
  • 2-4 HOT green chillies
  • 400ml coconut cream
  • 500g fish, cut into 3cm cubes (in this case marlin)



Blend onion, garlic and ginger, then fry off the paste in a pan.

Dry roast fennel seed, coriander seed and black peppercorns in a pan, then grind into a powder in a mortar and pestle. Add to the onion paste with turmeric.

Place macadamias, green chillies and coriander in a food processor and chop fine. Add to the pan. Slowly add 400ml of coconut cream and infuse flavours.

Transfer  into a large pot and add 1 cup of water. Bring to boil and add fish cubes. Cook though and serve alone or with cauliflower rice.

Garnish with coriander, green and red chillies and enjoy!
