The recipe of Gheliyeh mahi
First clean the pieces of the fish and pour salt and black pepper on both sides of the pieces and put them aside. Next wash the coriander and fenugreek after cleaning and rinse them and then chop them with a chopper into small pieces and put them aside.
In this phase dice the onions and fry them with some oil in a suitable pot so that the onion becomes soft and clear and then add some turmeric and fry it again so that the onion and turmeric become coherent.
In this phase chop the garlics into small pieces and add them to the onions. The garlics shouldn’t be fried too much because it burns fast. After frying garlic, a little add the chopped fenugreek and coriander and fry them well.
Fry the vegetables well so that they become juicier and their juice evaporates then add half a glass boiled water and let the vegetables cook completely. After 15 minutes’ mix the tamarind with water so that it becomes lighter.
Then add the tamarind with another 2 glasses of boiled water to the pot and let the stew settle with a gentle heat. If you don’t have tamarind, you can use Sour pomegranate paste for this stew.
At last 30 minutes of cooking, fry the pieces of the meat with some oil so that they preserves their shape and then add them to the stew. After the stew became oilier and settled down serve it with rice.
