Post Pregnancy Fish Curry Recipe

This is one recipe which i had daily as my post pregnancy food during the first month. Even though my mom is a vegetarian she made this curry for me, it has ajwain, dry ginger, garlic, shallots, curry leaves and many other things in this which helps increase milk during breast feeding. You can check all my post pregnancy recipes too..There is a veg version of this curry, which i will post very soon.
