Fish Curry

There are so many ways to make a fish curry - Red or green base, where the fish blends in so well. Over the years, I have noted that Fish curries which are mainly prepared in western India or Southern India has almost similar ingredients. The only difference is when couple of ingredients added or replaced that gives it uniqueness of a part city or zone in India. Fish curries are quite simple and less masala loaded in Eastern part which is also amazing


Today I was in mood to have fish gravy with a mix of western and southern India. There was fresh catch at the fish market of, local black salmon. I love this particular fish because the firm body, no fishy smell and negligible bones in it. I am a fish lover if no bones, that doest make me love eel!


Here is my quick way to churn out a flavorful curry

half cup chopped shallots

5-4 curry leaves
