This Fish fry has all sorts of flavors in it - tangy, spicy and also a tinge of sweet flavor. I am also a big fan of seafood dishes especially Goandishes

Buy fresh unsweetened grated coconut if you can or grate it yourself in a blender. I don't like to use it since it really isn't a word used in Indian cooking and its usage tends to oversimplify the breadth and variety of Indian gravy based dishes
