Curry Leaves Fish Fry Recipe - Karuveppilai Meen Varuval Recipe

This is a simple fish fry but it taste amazing. The taste of this dish depends on the fish you use. Use pomfret fish for best taste. You can use any white fleshed fish as well. I was able to get a fish similar to pomfret and hubby loved this so much. The main flavour for this is from curry leaves, so add a good amount of it in.
