I should admit to you a truth my friends. I am not a expert in cooking fish dishes, i never liked fish recipes, we dont cook fish recipes often, most of the fish recipes which i try has been a flop for me, THESE ALL HAPPENED BEFORE MARRIAGE.
Once i got married to a total fish addict. I started learning fish recipes slowly. Once of the basic recipe is fish curry, i make it in my style, but my hubby was not very keen into that curry. So he thought me how to make the perfect fish curry in the world. And i should admit the truth that it was yum, i started eating fish lovingly from that day onwards.
