Kingfish Ginger Curry or Iswana Ambat (Konkani) is made in most of the Mangalorean homes. Fish Ambat is a very famous recipe in all konkani homes. It goes well along rice/idli/dosa. Mostly for this same curry masala can be used for different fish types. Its very quick to make as fish does not need more time for cooking. Health-wise, this is a very good recipe. And mostly it is just awesome to have this curry during rainy season. Make one and enjoy with your family.

      Let the gravy boil for a minute, now add the fish pieces and switch off the burner. Close the lid and keep the curry for 3-5 minutes.    

      The fish gets cooked in the hot gravy. This way of cooking helps to keep you fish meat intact and they do not split. I mostly cook fish in this manner. You will really enjoy the gravy as it gives a unique aroma of ginger and green chilli.
