Kerala Fish Curries I make since it doesn’t involve any roasting or grinding or shredding coconuts. some frozen Seer Fish (Ney Meen) and decided to make a quick curry. The frozen ones of course lack the flavor of the fresh Ney Meen which used to be a regular dish at our house, back in Kerala. This Meen Curry is lot more healthier than Kerala Fried Fish and I had it with Rotis instead of Rice.
