Pomfret Amti (Curry from the west coast of India)

“This is a tangy curry from my favourite cuisine of India - Malvani food. The preparations are spicy but so tasty you feel like eating your fingers to get the last remnants of the taste into your system. OMG my mouth's watering with the thought of it. Taken from the Sunday Mid-day, Mumbai. Using Zaar to store the recipes for future use.”
