Malaver Macchi

Last few weekends we were so busy that could not get time to purchase fish from the Bangladeshi store. Finally this weekend anyhow managed to go and purchase some fish from there. If fish is not at home really it’s a difficult time for me then because every day I have to think what to cook. That was really a horrible job. Fish curry in any style we enjoy every time. Previously also I tried one Kerala fish curry which was awesome so again tried to cook a fish curry in Kerala style. And this time I made Malavar Macchi recipe courtesy my friend Sunita.

The fish curry which I cooked with coconut, curry leaves and tamarind. The taste was just too good. My husband doesn’t like the sour taste in food that much. But he just loved this one. And the cooking procedure is so easy. So any day u can try this one.
