Best Fish Curry Ever!

Lia O'Hara

This fish curry is forever a winner in our household. Got it from a dear colleague, who learned how to make it from her Goan friend. I've tasted a lot of curries in my life, but this one wins my tastebud each time. Very versatile, can be used with prawns or shrimps, and pretty much any white fish. Serve with warm rice.
