One of my family classics!! The taste of a dish, that one grows up with, are very hard to forget, don't they???

I grew up eating Mom’s Kerala Fish curry, they are to die for, my daughters are hooked too!! There are ton's of variations for Kerala Fish curry and each one has unique taste according to the way of preparation of each region or each home..Interestingly you may find as many popular recipes as there are a wide variety of  fish curry. This is one among them Fish with Mango!!


Sweet and sourness of mango combined with fleshy fish pieces, blended in a mixture of grounded coconut, served with hot piping rice, pickle and pappad ...Oh Yum!! I don’t want to tempt you anymore, I'm leaving yourself to judge this wonderful combo...Enjoy!

    U know what?? YOur recipe and the picture shown doesnt match. U did not mention anything about crackling mustard in hot oil but i can see loads of mustard in the picture. Not fair. Check it out before posting something.
