Mackeral Phanna Upkari (Fish in chilli tamarind sauce)

on December 29, 2014

Phanna upkaris are my hubby’s all time fav !! Yeah, he has a liking to spicy food, where as am just the opposite. I prefer something that is mildly spiced. I have already posted a recipe of “Prawns Phannaupkari” sometime back, This is the same recipe, only replacement is the fish used.


  • Mackeral : 500 gms (about 6, cut into 3 pieces each)
  • Red chilli (Roasted) : 7
  • Kashmiri Chilli (Roasted) : 7
  • Tamarind : A small lemon sized ball
  • Coconut oil : 2tbsp (Coconut oil gives it a good flavour, but you can use olive or refined oil too if you like)
  • Onions : 4 big (chopped)
  • Salt to taste


  • Ground the red chillies and tamarind to a fine paste, and set aside
  • Heat oil in a pan, Fry the onions till golden brown.
  • Now add the ground paste and some water to make a thick gravy and adjust the salt as per your taste.
  • Add the fish and mix well, and simmer for 10 min.
  • Serve hot with boiled rice
