Recipe by 963949

I spent time in Bangalore recently and returned home. I wanted to recreate some of the amazing fish recipes that I experienced in that amazing city. Some of the ingredients are missing in our country but after experimenting a bit I came up with this dish. Its has remarkable flavour and goes well with any firm, white fish

I was looking for recipes to use up some fresh curry leaves, and decided to try this one. It is easy to bring this recipe together, and it tastes great! Because I was using frozen tilapia, I lengthened the cooking time, and added some water so the coconut milk wouldn't scorch. Next time I will increase the spice level. Worth making again!
