In my home especially mango season my Amma/ mom used to substitute tamarind with mangoes, that makes the fish curry taste so yummy. The tanginess of mangoes combines with fish pieces along with coconut paste and spices, makes this curry so special.
My Amma used to try different types of fish curry like with coconut, without coconut, coconut milk curry, with bilimbi, raw mango etc. My all Kerala recipes are from my Amma and mother in law. Each one has its unique flavors, out of all this fish curry I like most this raw mango fish curry. Any type of fish can be used to make this curry, but should be fresh enough. For this same recipe if you want you can substitute coconut paste with thick coconut milk. Try this amazing fish curry and let me know your valuable feed back in comments.
