Meen Pattichathu/Vattichathu is a spicy fish curry, a traditional Syrian Christian dish. This is fiery red curry which is hot as well as tangy. The trick involved in this dish is using Kashmiri red chilli powder, which is mild in heat but gives a bright red colour. A key ingredient of this dish is Gambooge, a tamarind variety, known as Kudampuli in Malayalam, which gives the tangy twist to it. Ideally, this curry should be cooked in a claypot for best results. One of the favourite combination of Keralites is Meen Pattichathu/Vattichathu with Kappa Vachathu. You can see the video of Meen Pattichathu here.
