Nogle Fanna Upkari

Many seafood lovers who have tasted my mom's fanna upkari, get pleasantly surprised that this delicious curry is so simple to make and does not even contain any coconut. But it's true. My grandmother's signature recipe, which is now equally ably made by mom, does not fail. You can change the main fish per your choice and adjust the spices per your liking. But authentic fanna upkari means fiery hot, sour goodness!
