It is a Kerala style traditional dish which is made by fish which is called as Fish Mango Stir Fry or Thoran. Fish dishes are very popular and highly demanded item in hotels and restaurants.  Different types of fishes are available but price will change based on season. Keralites are not interested to have lunch without fish dishes so different variety dishes are available in houses and restaurants. Fish dishes are costly items but also everyone is ready to buy it. This very tasty and spicy fish thoran and it is the combination of Mango and fish so that flavour of this dish is entirely different. I have added pure coconut oil to this recipe so that it is very good for our health. We can prepare this without coconut oil and taste will not be changed. This is completely Kerala traditional dish. We will get good smell while cooking it and that can give the tendency to eat food. I would like to use it as the side dish with hot plain Rice for lunch. If you need spicier dish or red colour you can add red chilli powder. I haven't added chilli powder to this recipe. We can use any type of fish such as dried fish, small fish and big fish. We can use Gambooge (kudampuli) instead of mango. This is an excellent combination with rice, tapioca and chapati. It is very good recipe for those who likes fish dishes. This is very simple recipe so that we can prepare very easily at home. If we use clay pot to make this dish we will get very good and natural taste.

This is the famous dish for different celebrations or festivals such as Christmas, Easter, birthdays, weddings or any other special celebrations. We can serve ghee rice with vegetarians and non-vegetarians dishes. This is very easy to prepare at home. The main ingredients of ghee rice are Basmati rice and ghee. I have used cardamom powder, cloves, Cinnamon stick and kiss miss to get good taste and good flavour. These all are optional ingredients and we can add based on our preferences.
