Hello friends ! Did you ever try Tilapia Fish in Bengali style ? Tilapia fish is now available everywhere in India. So one of my favourite fish is Tilapia also. My son is also liking it very much. So usually I prepare this fish in various styles. Whatever the preparation I am very fond of this Tilapia. Its tasty and less bone too. This fish curry very simple and tasty too. But must be sure about that you are taking this curry with plain warm rice. Curry should not be so thick at all. As we are from Bangladesh by origin so we have a speciality to make fish curry along with some kind of vegetables. Here is no exception! Basically in fish curry we add potato, brinjal, broad beans, cauliflower florets etc. But in this recipe I used potato and broad beans only. Vegetables gives a nice flavor in fish curry too.
