Fish curry is one of the favourite dishes for south Indians and its taste is really good. Fishes are very much important to non-vegetarian so many houses will have fishes for both business and homely needs. It is very costly item and highly demanded item so fish market will be very crowded always. Everybody is using it if it has high prices because it became a part of their life. I have seen so many people those who can't eat food without fish dishes. If we go to hotels it is the highly demanded item and costly.  Its prices will be based on the fishes. Different types of variety dishes are there on market. It is very good to health if we use it on daily basis. Today, I would like to share very tasty mackerel fish curry which is made by mackerel fish.
It is completely a traditional fish curry and like this fish very much. Usually it is making in my house because I would like to have this fish curry with the combination of rice and mashed tapioca. Everyone in my houses are enjoying very well with my favourite mackerel fish curry especially my father like to have this curry with chapati. I have learnt this recipe from my grandmother who is very interested in traditional cooking and she was teaching me about cooking always. My mother also preparing this curry with same procedure but I am making this fish curry little spicy. It is very easy to make at home. I haven't used roasted masala paste, if we add roasted masala its taste will be different. We can use mango or tamarind instead of Gambooge to get sour taste.

Fish molly is also known as fish stew. It has different name in different places. We can write it as fish molee. It is completely a traditional tasty curry. I can say that it is entirely different from other fish curries because its colour and method of preparation is completely different from others. It can make it by using any type of fishes.
