Hi Nimi..Its great to knw that u all liked the curry..My husband turned to veg nw ..So can’t make fish curry and my kudampuli is starring at me for long.. ,So thought of this veg version .. 🙂

I dont have kudampuli with me. Can I try this recipe without kudampuli?
can I substitute with tamarind?
Thanks for dropping by..hw r u ..
Hmm .. U can substitute ,but wont that taste we are expecting ..We are expecting a fish curry taste with out fish ..So kudampuli is the hero .. 🙂 anyway u can experiment with tamarind but first with small quantity ..
