Lemon fish/Modso Ambotik

If you like sour and spicy gravies then this is it!

The bright red Goan Ambot-Tik Curry is an easy, sense tingling dish the very thought of it brings back the memories and the aroma of the good old days in Goa when my husband used to go fishing with his friends and get lots of fish and mum used to make different curries but ambotik topped it all. Back then and still now my love for ambotik is too deep,so do try this mouthwatering recipe made with tangy and spicy ground masala.
