This recipe comes from my bestie jafrin moms, i have written about her many times in my blog. I have posted many of her recipes in my blog. Couple months back we were having a chat together, at that time she told me about a fish recipe, i really liked it and wanted to try. Last week hubby got fish and i decided to give her recipe a shot, i ringed her up and asked that recipe once again. The main ingredient in that is a special fish masala powder and she told me that her mom makes that at home. I asked her that recipe as well, and immediately she asked her mom the recipe and conveyed it to me..
First I tried the masala powder and then made the tangy and spicy puli meen recipe and it was a huge success, everyone loved it specially “hubby – the fish lover” loved it..I even made her mom’s fish curry as well, which was spot on..Will share both the recipe soon..
Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..
