I make fish curry differently each time, i like to experiment with it. Most of the time i make fish curry with coconut, since hubby loves his fish curry with coconut in it..
This is one fish curry which i made recently and it turned out to be super delicious. I totally loved the look of it. It is spicy, tangy, everything a fish curry should be..
