Meen Manga Curry (Fish Curry with Mango)

We didn’t meet here for a while right? Well I had been on vacation to my native Kerala. This time during visit I made sure that I had only Kerala nadan curries. I had so much of variety of traditional dishes that I am filled with memories of the same. So here is the first one which is coming to my mind. My Mother’s special Meen Manga Curry 🙂

    There are so many varieties of fish. It would be great to know which masala/preperation style for which fish.
    Oily fish like Mathi vs. Netholi or Nei meen , etc. A chart will also be helpful. Thank you!
