Moilee is a light coconut milk based curry that is popular in the coastal state of Kerala. The dish is unique in that it does not have the typical ingredients that are used in this region like tamarind, cumin, and coriander. It is said to have originated in the colonial era where it was served to the Portuguese who preferred a milder curry to the spicier local version.
Here fish is braised in a rich coconut milk infused with light aromatics. It is usually served with appam, a fermented rice pancake, or idiyappam, which are rice sticks. Enjoy this light and fragrant dish!
