Fish Chilli

Fish Chilli


Fish Chilli is a delicious recepie that every seafood lover would love to eat. I have been continously posting fish recepies since last few days as I am trying various recepies daily.

Fish Chilli goes well with Chinese rice or noodles and even rotis and chapatis. I have made it semi dry , you can make it more dry or gravy accordingly.

Here, I have used tuna fish ; any fish without thorns and sufficient flesh can be used to make this recepie.

Let’s checkout the recepie below
