Sorrel Leaves Fish Curry - Gongura Fish

Fish is a favorite dish for most of the people. Blessed are the people who live in coastal line because they can get fresh sea fish. Fish curry tastes good with rice and even chapati. Usually in fish stew we add tamarind  for spicy tangy taste. Today I have tried it with Sorrel leaves. It really tastes yummy. Now a days children want more of non-veg, they just shrink their face if we serve veg food. Leafy vegs are must for growing kids. So I decided to add it with fish curry. It gives the same taste as the tamarind.  Fish necessarily need not be sea fish, we can use pond fish also. My kids usually have hot lunch at home after they return from their school.
