I got a KG of seer fish and thought of experimenting this fish fry using curry leaves for a change. What if the bride doesn't like the taste of it? I didn't want to disappoint her and decided to prepare this fish fry and saved some for curry leaves fish fry. When I served both the fries to them, nothing left and got a good feedback and they said it was a perfect fish fry for those who look for many varieties.
