Fish curry with mustard seeds


Fish with mustard seeds curry

Fish curry with mustard seeds is a spicy fish curry recipe. Here I'm using yellow mustard seeds as black mustard seeds are bitter than yellow one. Before making a paste soak the mustard seeds in hot water for at least half an hour to reduce its bitterness. 

  Any kind of fish big or small can be used for preparing this recipe. Fish which are not fresh , which is one or two days old is good to taste with mustard seeds. I donot make this recipe with fresh fish. I always make sour fish curries with fresh fish. There are two procedure of making this recipe. You can fry fish pieces or you can cook it as raw. Generally I donot fry fish, I directly add it to the mustard gravy. But here I am frying the fish pieces before adding it to the gravy.
