Pomfret Curry Goan Style

My pet freaks out on fish and pomfret is her favorite fish. My pet was wagging tail and asking to eat the moment My mom was making them lol :)

Please buy fresh pomfrets or fish. I don’t prefer cold storage fish. But if fresh fish is not available than you can get fish from cold storage. Luckily India is blessed with lots of coasts and coastal fishes.

Tip:

  1. You can make this green curry with pomfrets or prawns or Mackerels.
  2. Also I have used Raw Mango which is available in summer however you can always use tamarind instead of Mango. I always remove the seed of raw mango from the curry post 1 hour once curry is cooked. Otherwise the curry becomes more sour. You can keep the mango seed in the curry if you like the sour flavor :)
