Parents of young kids always struggle with what to feed their young ones. My daughter throws her share of tantrums but one thing that she eats without fuss is Fish Curry. Isnt it unusual that the daughter of a Tamilian and a Punjabi is so fond of Fish? I credit this to her Konkani Nanny and our Malayali Friends. Whatever may be the reason I am happy that she happily eats fish curry at least 3 times a week.
This Fish curry recipe is also a Goan recipe but a little different from the my earlier post on Goan Fish Curry . Ingredients are more or less similar but style of cooking is different and that makes a difference in taste. The red spicy look comes from the Kashmiri Red Chilli I used, yet my four year old daughter managed it well and I add a little ghee in her curry that helps in reducing the chilly flavour.
If you want you can marinate the fish and freeze it for later use. I freeze pieces separately, so that whenever required I do not have to de-freeze entire fish and this way the fish lasts longer. If you keep freezing and de-freezing is meat it loses its flavour and nutrition. I prefer Seer or King fish as it is easy to remove the bones and much safer for children.
