Delicious Fish Curry

Seafood as always been my favorite and living in a coastal city with abundance of fresh seafood round the year is like a spa treatment with sea food.

Though I love baked or grilled seafood, adding Indian spices takes the whole palate to a new level. Today I am sharing one of my favorite curry that I have put together with different cooking methods from different regions of India. Normally tamarind is the souring agent in fish curries, and Kokum or Garcia Indica is not used so often (unless I am mistaken)

Sharing a simple curry recipe with you all and hope you will like it
