goan style

Goan style yellow Fish curry; I tasted in a beach shack Goa.Goa is a small coastal state on the western coast of India.This state is famous for its beautiful beaches and attracts large numbers of foreign tourists every year.Previously it was a colony of Portuguese.Therefore the Portuguese cuisine has a great influence in Goan food.So that I used some typical Goan spices like cassia bark cinnamon, star anise, black pepper in my Goan style fish curry recipe.This is very easy to make and it can be a great option for lunch with steamed White rice.I hope you all will try my this fish curry recipe at home and share your experience by comments.
