    sonalipradhan356's Note:

    "Ambot" meaning TANGY and "tik" meaning SPICY is a Popular Goan cuisine which goes extremely well with SHARK meat because of it's strong flavor. There are a lot of variations to prepare a Ambotik curry with fish like Pomfret, Mackerel, Sardines , but I felt this version to be the best as the strong flavors of Shark meat compliments the tangy and spicy taste of the gravy. I have improvised the recipe adding a little sugar to enhance the flavors of the dish, also used kokum petals instead of tamarind.
