Canned Tuna Fish Curry With Raw Mango & Coconut Milk – Kerala Recipe

Kerala-style fish curry with canned tuna…

One of the ways of making fish curry in Kerala is by adding raw mangoes instead of tamarind & coconut milk to make the curry rich & creamy. Usually, shrimp is added to make this curry.

The other day, while making Kerala-style lunch I wanted to make a fish curry & I didn’t have any fish in my freezer instead I had canned tuna, I didn’t think much added canned white tuna for making this curry.

The curry turned out delicious, coconut milk added will make this curry rich & creamy, along with the raw mangoes, absolutely delish.
