【果阿咖喱鱼】Goan Fish Curry


海鲜是果阿家常菜里不可或缺的食材,果阿也是印度除了West Bengal和Kerala之外把海鲜当主要食材的州属。


Goa is the smallest state located in the South West of India. Its culture is  a mix of east and west due to the Portuguese ruling in the 1500s. The eastern influence is not just in the culture of the state, it also shows its footage in the cuisines. Seafood is the main cooking ingredients there, as well as a major source of protein.

As I grew up eating seafood, Goan dishes was one of the very first Indian dishes that I liked, and still do!

400-450 克的 三文鱼(或任何鱼类)切块或切片

1/2 只 洋葱
1 只 番茄
3-4 只 辣椒干
3-4 瓣 蒜
1/2 寸 姜
2 小勺 椰丝
