Ney Meen Curry Recipe - Seer Fish Curry Recipe | Kerala Ney Meen-Seer Fish Curry

Hello everyone, How are you all? Happy 4th of July to all readers in the USA :) Have any big plans for the 4th of July?




I wanted to share fish curry that I made a while ago. Yes you guessed it right, I have already shared with you the different version of fish curry/meen curry recipe. Here’s another take on it and tastes delicious and very easy...Ok...I know i had declared my previous Kerala Fish Curry /Meen curry recipe to be the easiest ever. Trust me folks...this is equally easy and what I loved the most about this recipe is that it's bit tangy, mildly flavored and the texture of the gravy. So pleasing to the palate that it leaves a persisting desire to reserve yourself as soon as you finish it!

This particular dish was handed over to me by my cousin sister Simi. As I have mentioned before, she is an excellent cook. I have already shared few of her recipes in this space. She took part in a cookery show conducted by a Malayalam TV channel and this Seer Fish /Ney meen curry was one of her dishes which was appreciated by all.  Every time I added seer fish to my shopping cart I would think I would give this recipe a try, but I always ended up making something else. Finally I tried out the recipe and I really enjoyed cooking it.These days, this dish has been a regular visitor on our table. We loved it so much. Follow the ingredients closely and the outcome will be really good. Do try and don't forget to pour your feedback...Enjoy!
