This is very rich and delicious non-vegetarian dish. This is very tasty with thick gravy and its main specialty is that Beef cooked in Coconut Milk. In Kerala, it is also known as Beef Mappas. This is completely Kerala Style dish and one of the favourite dish for them. We can use this same method to make Chicken and Fish. It is also useful to make some vegetarian dishes such as Potato, Green Peas and Mushroom. Beef Mappas is my favourite dish and Coconut Milk can give creamy effects. To increase creamy effect of this dish you can add Cashew Nut paste and Almond Paste. This is mainly preparing my house for Christmas and Ester. This is medium spicy dish and good to serve as the side dish with breakfast, lunch and dinner. It has the mixed flavour and smell of Cardamom and Cloves.

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. Better to make it with king fish but here I have used Mackerel fish because I couldn't get king fish. Usually we are making spicy red colour fish curry in houses and hotels. Keralites can't eat rice without fish curries or dishes because fishes are the main side dish of their daily day life. It will be available in some standard hotels and it has a royal effect. It will be a special and variety item to everyone. Its tasty is very nice and different from other fish curries.
