  • About

Molee (also known as molly or moilee) literally means stew and is commonly found in Keralan cuisine in South India. The fish, or in some cases meat, is stewed in coconut milk and is delicately spiced so as not to overpower the fish. It’s quick to prepare and cook and the results are always very pleasing. It’s important not to move the fish around too much once it is in the pan as you do not want it breaking up.
