Husband and I decided to head out for lunch sometime ago and his choice for lunch was Kerala fish curry and basmati rice. I honestly had never heard of this dish but when we tasted it, we both fell in love!

A few days after that, I was trying to decide what I should make at home for lunch and he suggested that I attempt the Kerala fish curry so I went into research and experimenting mode and this is what my version of the dish consists of.
