Kau Macha Fulakobi Tarkari (Climbing Gourami Fish and Cauliflower Curry)

Mugdha Mohanty | 06:11 | | | |
Kau Macha or climbing gouramis are so named due to their ability of climbing out of the water and walk short distances...Kau macha is a yet another favorite fish from my childhood days..I love each and every item of this fish..During my childhood i ate this Kau macha fulakobi(cauliflower) tarkari made by my Grand Mom very often...I love Kau macha besara and Kau macha gota bhaja as well...This is a very delicious and rich in flavor curry to try with hot rice....so try it and enjoy...:-)


Ingredients :-
  • Kau Macha - 4
  • Fulakobi(Cauliflower) - 10 big florets
  • Potato - 1 big
  • Onion - 1 big
  • Ginger - 1''
  • Tomato - 1
  • Green chilli - 2, cut in half
  • Cumin powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Coriander powder - 1 tsp
  • Kashmiri Red chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Garam masala powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Turmeric powder - 2 tsp
  • Clove - 4
  • Bay Leaf  -2
  • Sugar - 1 tsp + 1 pinch
  • Salt to taste
  • Mustard oil
  • Few chopped coriander leaves for garnishing



Method :-
  • Wash the fish properly and marinate with salt, 1/2 tsp turmeric powder and mustard oil.Keep aside for 10 min.
  • Soak the cauliflower florets in warm water mixed with 1 tsp turmeric powder for 5 min. It will help you to get rid of any tiny insects that may be present deep inside the florets.
  • Peel the skin of the potato and cut it in to half lengthwise and then in to narrow wedges about 1'' thick.
  • Heat oil in a pan and fry the cauliflower florets with potato wedges till light brown in color. Take out and keep aside in a plate.
  • In the same pan add little more oil and fry the marinated fishes till light brown. Take them out in to a plate and keep aside.
  • Cut half  of the onion in to thin strips and grind the other half with 1'' ginger to make a smooth paste.
  • Heat some more oil to the pan and add 1/2 tsp sugar to caramelize which gives the curry a nice aroma as well as a very vibrant color.
  • At this moment add cloves and bay leaves with the thin strips of onion.
  • Fry them till light brown in color and add kashmiri red chilli powder to it.
  • Fry a little, then add chopped tomatoes with the ground paste.
  • Add  the remaining turmeric powder,cumin powder and coriander powder to the above.
  • Fry the masala till the oil oozes out.

  • Now add fried cauliflower florets and potato wedges to the pan and fry till the masala coats them well.
  • Then add water with salt to taste and cook the above in low flame by covering the lid till potato wedges and cauliflower florets become tender.
  • Now add fried fish with garam masala and green chilli and cook for 4-5 min.
  • Switch off the flame and garnish with chopped coriander leaves.
  • Serve hot with plain rice and enjoy...:-)
*Note :-
  • Kau macha is very tricky to handle as its very slimy..So its best to remove gills and prepare it by your fish monger.
