Pallu Mara (Yellow Tamarind Fish Soup)

Pallu Mara is traditional dish from Makassar, my hometown... :)
It's Delicious...

  • 1 fish or fish steaks weighing 2 kg (4.5 lb)
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 10 red chillis
  • 8 shallots or 2 onions
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • A piece of root ginger or 1 tsp ginger powder
  • 1.5 cups tamarind water
  • Salt

How to:
  1. Clean the fish and rub it with the turmeric and salt.
  2. Seed the chillis and cut them lengthwise into two.
  3. Slice the shallots (or onion), garlic and ginger.
  4. Put the garlic and ginger with half the sliced shallots and five chillis at the bottom of your fish pan.
  5. Lay the fish or fish steaks on top of these.
  6. Put the remaining chillis, shallots, garlic and ginger on top of the fish, and pour the tamarind water over everything.
  7. If you are using ginger powder, disolve this in the tamarind water first. Add some more salt. Cover the pan and cook slowly for 40 to 50 minutes.
  8. Shake the pan gently from time to time and make sure the fish is not burnt.
  9. You can add a little more water during cooking if you think the fish is becoming too dry and is in danger os burning. This fish should be served the next day, cold.
  10. Remove the solids that have been cooked with it, put it in a serving-dish and garnish with sliced tomatoes.
