Mackerel fish or Ayala meen is a common fish variety in all over the wide of seashores. Seafood eaters will be very familiar with this common fish.
Fish is the easy and quick to make non-veg dish. We have no boundaries towards seafoods, it’s a full pack of nutrients which we want for our daily basis. Fish curry, fish fry, fish puttu, fish kootu, fish aviyal, fish roast, and the list will be endless as like the fish varieties.
Ayala is a very soft and fleshy fish, rich with Omega-3 as well. In this post I have shared a ver easy and common South Indian Fish curry, the curry is very close to malabar fish curry style.
