    Ash Joys's Note:

    It's a staple in Kerala - the southernmost state of India. It's spicy and tangy and is excellent with rice.

      We eat and cook lots and lots of curries, and this wasn't one of our favourites. We found it quite bitter and raw tasting and missing "something" (other than salt). We used smaller pieces of fish and although we only cooked them in the sauce for 5 minutes, they were quite dry. I think the recipe needs a little editing-it would be good if the ingredients were listed in the order they atre used in the method. Recipe is very simple and we thank you for that.

      took a bit of time to find the Indian ingredients but was very happy when I did. Now I can make this again and will.
