Editors Review

Ask a mallu what is the most loved dish that can be eaten on any day and the answer is surely going to me “Fish Curry.” This recipe is an easy version of the traditional red fish curry from Kerala. It is great when you want to eat fish curry and have little time to prepare. Unlike the traditional one, it doesn’t involve any roasting or grinding or shredding coconuts. This is also a healthier version of the other Meen Curries of Kerala which involve frying the fish before adding it to the coconut curry.
