ABOUT Bombay duck curry RECIPE

This fish is cooked in various forms. This one is spicy curry.. In Bengal, every household has their own recipe, believe me which differs by few ingredients from one another along with the taste. This is very delicate fish and should have a delicate hand to cook it to be perfect.
