Fish Caldino / Caldin ( Mild Fish Curry )


It's a Goan dish. It's a mild yellowish colour curry which is served as a side dish. This curry can be made with any vegetables or fresh fish. Surmai, pomfret or prawns are used to make this curry.  The curry though mild, is quite flavorful.
This can be served with hot rice or pav.

Ingredients
1 fresh Coconut grated
4 Garlic cloves
2 Cloves
1 small piece of Cinnamon
10 to 15 Black Pepper Corn

1 tsp Tamarind Paste
