Malvani Fish Curry Recipe

I am a big seafood lover. I can fill my appetite on the smell or for me fragrance and aroma of fish…which apparently some people don’t like:) I can have seafood every day. Name it and I love it! Crabs, Salmon, Mussels, Tilapia, Mackerel, Shrimp, Clams, Oysters, Cod, Catfish, Pompano….the list is never ending. I like it more when it is spicy and tangy.

Green Clams.

I love sea food and fortunately in Mountain View, CA there are various markets where you can get it fresh and in variety too. Clams are one of my favorite seafood. Clams can be applied to freshwater mussels or as “Tisrya” in Marathi. Tisrya Masala has always been my favorite. I have tried and tasted clams in various cuisines from clam noodles to clam pizza but so far I love the Indian style clams the most.
So in order to keep my taste buds happy I made Green clams which were so amazingly spicy and delicious. Thus I decided to share this easy recipe.
