I love anjum anand recipes, they are so delicious and quick to make. She explains all her recipes in a vey passionate way. I have pretty much all her cookbooks in my shelf. This recipe is from her cookbook Anjum’s New Indian Cookbook. As soon as I came across this one, I know that this is going to be the one which I am going to try out very soon and last week I did it..The result is a creamy coconut milk and spices flavoured fish curry, pour it over some rice and you will melt down in each spoonful of bite..It was that good..
I hope you will try it and let me know what you think..
