          Hi foodies, Welcome to AYESHA'S KITCHEN. Today's recipe is one of the special Indian fish recipes - Goan fish curry. Goa is a state in India which attracts tourists. The resorts in goa / Goa hotels with their delicious,  mouth watering food persuade tourists, again and again, to explore Goa as a tourist destination.  Goan fish curry recipe is the traditional Goan dish and the fish curry with rice which is yellowish red in color is known as xittcoddi in konkini.  Goan food recipes are considered incomplete without fish and hence their cuisine is based on seafood.
              I love searching for new tastes and new ways of cooking. So I always chit chat with my neighbors and my relatives regarding their best recipes. And such tried, tested collections are some of my most popular dishes in this blog. Yesterday, one of my neighbors inquired me about my blogging and she asked me to add some Goan curry dishes too. She is from Goa and so she compelled me to try their fish curry recipe and said, "this will surely become a great hit in your blog". But until then I believed that the tastiest  fish curry recipes are Kerala fish curry, Malabar fish curry, Kottayam fish curry and so on. But once I tried this Goan fish curry, I could say that this is one of the tastiest fish curry ever...!!! was very very tasty...Thanks a ton to my sweet sister and neighbor Mareena George for this very special Goan recipe. Guys, please try this simple curry fish recipe,  for sure you all will crave for more....Please share your valuable feedback about this special yummy curry.
