Fish curry Recipe
Fish curry recipe - fish cooked thoroughly with coconut milk and Indian spices. I have used salmon in this recipe. You could use any fish of your choice.
Speaking about fish curry, it is my favorite curry which I didn't get in my hostel life and after marriage in US. Here we won't get all the Indian fish varieties fresh. Normally I use red snapper. But for the recipe here , I have used salmon. Salmon is good for health. My doctor advised me salmon when I was pregnant. Not only during pregnancy, salmon is the best fish variety that is good for all seasons.
Coming to the nutritional benefits, salmon is good for heart health. It is an excellnt source of omega-3 fatty acid and Vitamin D.

  • I have sed salmon fish. You can use any fish of your choice.
  • If you use two teaspoon of oil from the leftover oil used for frying fish(without any dregs), it tastes so good.
  • If you want to add less spice for your kid and more spice for you and your spouse, then add less chilly powder while grinding the mixture.. say 1 tsp. And after tempering add your desired extra spice(chilly powder) to the curry and bring it to a vigorous boil and the switch off immediately.
