Goan Ambot Tik

The Goan Ambot Tik Curry is a fish preparation which is spicy and tangy. This Ambot Tik is different from the version I had posted earlier. This one was shared to me by Aunt Rosy and she uses Kite Fish. She uses Bedgi chillies instead of Kashmiri. Since I do not eat kite fish, I have made this with shark. (click here for the other one)

Serves: 4 to 6 Persons

Prep. Time: 25 Mins.

Cooking Time: 20 to 25 Mins.

Ingredients:

[Standard Measure – 1 cup = 200 ml.]

  • Kite / Shark Fish (cleaned & cut into pieces) – 500 gms. (cleaned)
  • Onion (finely chopped) – 1 medium
  • For the Masala Paste:
    • Dry Red Kashmiri Chillies (deseeded) – 02
    • Dry Bedgi Chillies (deseeded) – 12
    • Ginger – ½ inch
    • Garlic – 6 cloves
    • Onion – 1 small
    • Tomato – 1 small

Step 1:    Wash the fish pieces, drain well and apply 1 ½ tsp salt and keep aside for 15 to 20 minutes.
