Fish Curry

Fish Curry

As you all know by now that I try to incorporate fish in my diet as mush as I can. This is why I have more fish recipes on my blog as compared to chicken or mutton etc. So here is another one of my all time favourite fish recipes: Fish Curry. I cook this curry whenever I want to eat rice with Fish Curry Just like Bengalis. But this version of curry is not like any Bengal curry. Its one of my own successful experiments 😛 Since it’s very tasty I make it quite often.

Make sure that you use any hard fish like COD etc so that the fish does not dissolve in the curry while cooking. Also please make sure that you let the curry simmer for at least 30-40 minutes. Also fry the Masala for at least 10-15 minutes so that your throat does not burn because of uncooked chilli powder.If you don’t fry it properly than after cooking you can still taste raw chilli on the back of your throat.
Enough precautions for now, back to the recipe:
