Meen Moilee Recipe / Meen Molee Recipe / Fish Molee Recipe / Fish Molly Recipe



This curry is one of my favourite..I love it with rice best, but taste yum with chapati, dosa or idli..This curry is great for kids, because it is so creamy and mild.  I have already shared a recipe for meen molee in this blog. But this version is the best.

Similar Recipes,


I love the colour of this as well, the light yellow colour makes it so attractive as well. There are few steps to follow when cooking this. You can boil for the thin coconut milk till the fish is cooked, but once you add the thick coconut milk and tomatoes you shouldn't boil the curry because the tartness and citrusness from the tomato will curdle the thick extract and the curry wont be creamy like this anymore..So have that on mind before cooking this..

 

I hope you will like this fish dish and let me know if you try it..
