Goan Fish Curry - Goa - CODOU

In this recipe I have used Sardines to make Coddov but apart from Sardine you can also make this dish with Pork , Egg or any other small fish can be used to make this delicious Goan Curry. A few villages in Goa even make this dish with salted pork and dry fish.


800gms Sardines (cut clean and apply salt)

Goan Sardine

Other ingredients:

2 large onion chopped

1 large tomato chopped

2 tablespoon coconut oil

3 + 1 green chilies (3 chopped and 1 slit)

¼ teaspoon turmeric

1 teaspoon cumin crushed

7 cloves of garlic crushed

¼ teaspoon Sugar

2 Tarvati chilies or Gaunti chilies (Red)

38 – 40gms tamarind soaked in 3 cups of warm water

½ Maggie cube dissolved in 1 cup warm water

Salt to taste

*** 1 cup is 236ml



1. Apply salt for the fish and set aside

2. In a kadai add coconut oil.


3. Add the crushed garlic and sauté for a while.


4. Now add the green chilies and cumin.


5. Add the chopped onions and when they change colour add the tomatoes.

7. Also add 1 cup of Maggie water (stock) and sugar to this and bring it to a boil.
