South Indian Style Fish Curry is one of the best to be served on Rice for dinner or lunch. Any kind of fish can be used for this curry.
Tired of eating my regular Goan style fish curry. Whenever we buy fish , we either make Goan Curry, or fry them. But last week we visited the grocery store and bought salmon fillets. Wanted to try out something different with Indian touch.
Being a hardcore Goan, We love fish and I make sure that I make my recipes healthy , because fish is full of proteins and I don’t want to compromise the nutrients you get from the food.
I did some research online and thought of trying out South Indian Style curry. They use Curry leaves tadka or tempering for their most of the gravy recipes . I love the aroma of that tempering.
Salmon is very rich in nutrients and has many health benefits. But somehow, I am not a fan of Salmon , especially here in USA , I tried out different salmon recipes, but still didn’t like the taste of that fish. But Since my husband loves this fish, I said ok, let’s prepare some salmon fish gravy and it really came out tasty. The gravy is thick, but can be made more runny by adding water depending upon one’s choice. You can literally use any fish (even the fish with bones) for this recipe.
