Karimeen curry recipe | Kerala fish curry recipe

Karimeen curry is an authentic fish curry in Kerala. Pearl fish ( karimeen ) curry is a perfect combination with rice, chapati, idiyappam etc.

There are lots of health benefits for Pearl fish ( karimeen ) as it is low in fat and high in vitamins, proteins, calcium etc. 

This fish curry is very simple and easy to make. For making this curry I used Gambooge ( Kudamppuli ), but can use mango pieces, tamarind or tomatoes for a sour taste. But it is a unique taste by using kudamppuli in fish curry.

Try this spicy fish curry and enjoy you meal!
