This fish curry is one of Mangalore most popular meals. The spicing is complex and the roasted coconut adds another layer of flavour that is delicious. Use a firm white fish for this curry which won’t break up during the cook - ask your fishmonger for what is in season, tell him you are making a curry. We have included the okra to encourage people to use new but now easily available vegetables. They are full of goodness and easy to find now but if you prefer not to, leave them out or add some spinach to make it a one pot meal.
