This is a tangy black curry and tastes good with
fish fillets,or fish with less bones.
I made this recipe with sting ray cubes.
This recipe is akin to the Srilankan Ambulthiyal
I have posted before .
This is good to serve with rice,rotis,side dish for
stringhoppers or even bread .The same recipe
can be made with meat too.So do try and let me
know your comments.
