Fish in Mustard Sauce Recipe/ How to make Fish in Mustard Sauce
Fish being my favourite part of food I never hesitate to experiments with it. I can have fish literally everyday. Usually I love non veg dishes with that extra tanginess and spiciness. But sometimes these kind of mild curries also tempt me..This fish curry somehow reminds me the Bengali cuisine as it includes mustard. But usually in Bengal they fry fish before adding it to the gravy. I simply loved this fish curry..the flavour of mustard and coconut milk gives a very different taste. I hope you will love this recipe too. Learn how to make this Fish curry in Mustard Sauce with easy stepwise pics.
