Fish Mince Ball Curry

When you are in the mood for some fish, you want to be able to divide the dish easily then why not try to make something new and make a Fish Mince Ball Curry.

I have been eating Fish Mince Ball Curry or as we call it in our house “Machli na mamna” ever since I was a little girl. Back then I was not the biggest fan of eating fish balls; it was never really appealing to me. As grew older my taste buds developed and I found my self enjoying foods that I did not appreciate as a child. With the mince balls made with fresh fish, cooked just right, the fish taste is perfect in a curry.
