Have you ever heard of the mighty Koramenu? It is known as Bullseye snakehead fish or koramenu/karimeen locally. It is a speciality fish that is adored by lovers of non-vegetarian food. It is in great demand all throughout the year due to its distinctive properties. It costs twice that of chicken and at times you can see serpentine lines just to purchase this fish right out of the water. From kids to adults and even the elders enjoy this fish dearly due to its exceptional flavor as compared to other fresh water fishes.
One of the distinctive properties of this fish is the absence of bones. Usually rohu, catla or other freshwater fish are abundant with tiny bones that it makes it a challenge to consume them in a curry, pickle or roast. The koramenu contains slightly lesser number of bones making it safe and easy to consume. Like most Indian food, the korameenu too has its heritage. Offering the koramenu curry to guests is considered an honor in many parts of Andhra Pradesh. Steaming hot koramenu curry cooked with tamarind and other spices served over a bed of hot fluffy rice sided with crispy papad is a combination to die for.
