Fish Curry using Raw Mango/ Pacha Manga itta Meen Curry

My mom used to prepare different varieties of fish curry like with coconut, with coconut milk, mulakitta meen curry, adding vinegar and so on. Each one has its unique flavors. In all these, I love this raw mango one. The tanginess of mangoes combines with the fish pieces, which is well blended with ground coconut paste and  served along with steaming hot rice, is a lip smacking dish. Am I  overexcited here ??… :)

Any variety of fish can be used for this. Adding coconut oil gives an additional flavor to the dish.
