Fish Curry

Fish curry is very popular in Sri Lanka. Living in an island, we cook fish in so many ways. This fish curry is an everyday dish which is quite common in the south of Sri Lanka. If this recipe is too spicy for you, you can reduce chilli powder and add thick coconut milk instead of thin milk. I will post that recipe also soon.
