FISH KOFTAS IN CORIANDER CURRY



This Fish curry would really warm you up on a cold day. Very yummy and quick to prepare. Fish koftas are nothing but the fish balls. The fish balls are mostly deep fried. Here I have tried to cook them in a frying pan with little oil under very low fire.The curry even makes the koftas more yummy by making it soft and juicy as it goes in your mouth. No cream, butter or coconut milk added in this dish. You can enjoy it without being guilty.This dish goes well with chapatis, rotis, rice,naan etc.
