Nawabi Fish Korma

Fish curry is a regular diet for us. But same type of fish curry makes our lunch or dinner monotonous so every time I want to try something different. This time I added ‘Ajwain’ in my fish curry and the smell of ajwain made the fish curry so different than others. With plain rice this fish curry is just the perfect match. This is the first time I made it, so while making I was little tensed because with fish I added some potato also. But it came out superb. Please try my ‘Nawabi fish Korma’ it’s delicious.
