Points to ponder
  • If u want to make the curry spicy add more green chili and red chili powder.
  • If u wish to like the seasoning at the end do it after the fish is cooked .
  • If u want to make  more gravy add 2 cup water.Don't add more water it will spoil the taste..
  • do not over cook the fish..
  • if u want to add the kokum to the curry add it with the hot water otherwise squeeze it and then add that solution.
