Yesterday I cooked a Spicy Sri Lankan Fish Curry (Malu Mirisata) and thought of sharing it today!Surprise!!Usually I take a long time to upload pics and write a blog post.Still there are lot of recipes and photos waiting in a folder which I cooked and captured early this year. 🙂
Anyway,as Sri Lanka is an island,we consume plenty of fish and seafood.There are different methods to cook fish as a curry and I have shared some recipes before in this post Fish Curry and in this post Sri Lankan style fish curry.
If you check this Ambul Thiyal recipe,it is one of the best Fish Recipes from Sri Lanka!!
