There are a lot of variations for making fish curries in different parts of Kerala and this preparation is one of the classics among them. The blend of fish pieces and sour mango  in the pool of coconut mixture gives immense taste to this curry..For the same dish,each house has different methods and here I am sharing my mom's style of meen manga curry...

  8. Coconut (grated) : 3/4 cup
  9. Raw mango(cut into small pieces ) : 1 or 2 (based on the sourness)
  10. Fenugreek Seeds : 1/2 tsp
