It is very spicy Kerala style traditional fish curry and its taste is really good. Mango and fish are the better and tasty combination. It can be made by using any types of fish. Here, I have used shark fish which is very soft and thick fish. It doesn't have skeleton like other fishes so its masala curry will be very good. I have made this curry so many times by using different fishes. I learned this method from my mother because I love mango combination curries such as dried fish with mango chutney, stir fry and curry very much. My suggestion about fish curry is that it should be little spicy so I made this curry little spicy. We can use this curry with rice, chapati, mashed tapioca and jackfruit for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I would like to have this curry with hot rice for lunch. Its taste is entirely different from other fish curry. Coriander powder will give us a very special and variety taste and also gets thickness. Coconut milk gives a traditional taste and smell. It has the mixed flavour and smell of ginger, garlic and fenugreek powder and also it has the sour taste of mango. Fishes are the main and favourite item for non-vegetarians so this recipe will be very helpful to them. Keralites can't eat lunch without fish curry so they are trying new taste and special dishes from hotels but we can make it from home very easily. We can enjoy a lot with this special fish curry.
