Seafood Curry

Seafood Curry

The name of the dish itself will tell you that this dish is completely different from all other seafood dishes I have prepared, because I have induced both fish and prawns to this curry. Usually I never prepare by combining the seafood, this is my first try and the curry was too good. This would be a kids friendly curry, because of less spiciness in it and also they love it a lot. Let us move on to the recipe…
