More to keep in mind when cooking fish....once the fish is added, always keep the flame low, never flash boil them. Most of the fish takes time to acquire the masala taste.From what I experienced, fish curry will taste better after a day.

In response to lakshmiprasad`s comments...... The taste of a dish comes depending on how properly its cooked.Just by reading the recipe and doing it,u can`t tell an overall comment that this dish tastes crap and not to try.
