Fish Molee is a Soulful dish for those who love Fish with the aroma of Coconut Oil.

Fish Molee, a cultural keystone dish from Kerala. Fish slow-cooked in a generous amount of Coconut milk .with minimal spices. I love it more when it is cooked with virgin Coconut oil.

One can find several types of coconut oil in the market. The common labels are refined vs. unrefined. Unrefined coconut oil is usually called virgin (pure coconut oil). Many describe their oil through its method of extraction; cold-pressed, expeller-pressed. But expeller pressed and cold-pressed oils don’t necessarily mean “raw”.

A few months before I started using Virgin Coconut Oil from The Happy Grove. This is 100% purest, virgin, and most importantly, raw. No heat involved to help retain nutrients and natural goodness. It retains an authentic coconut aroma. When you make a dish like Fish Molee, it enhances the taste.

Fish Moilee is very close to Stew. The coconut milk here has a major role to play. I have used two different types of coconut milk, 1st extraction and 2nd extraction. The first one is thick which can’t be boiled, so I have added that at the end of the dish. The second extraction is thin which can be cooked.
