                              Fish could be considered as one of the healthiest form of seafood and which could not beat any others taste as well when combined with right flavors. Fish dishes does not need a lot of spices unlike other non-veg dishes to bring out the richness ,infact the less the better. 
                             This curry was and always is my moms signature recipe which am sharing here.
