Mangalore Roce Curry With Pomfret

I love coconut! In case you haven't looked at the rest of my recipes (which you really should do right now!) :) I am professing my love for coconut once again. In sweets, curries, a handful thrown in any veg or even to snack on. Really, I love it. This could be one of my favourite curries because it has pomfrets in it as well. One of my all time favourite fishes to eat. It was the first ever fish I fed little miss, though she is mainly a meat eater, she loves it too.
This curry is creamy and mildly spicy. If you like it hotter, just add a chilly or two. With a little (or a lot) of rice and a side of b=veg, for me, it is paradise in a plate :D
I hope you enjoy making this curry :)
