Ayala Vattichathu | Mackerel curry
Malabar style ayala vattichathu recipe with kudam puli.
Fish vattichahtu/ pattichathu is a traditional christian dish. They serve this dish along with appam or rice. In malabar area we prepare fish curry with tamarind. Most of the people don’t like the taste of kudam puli. But kudam puli is more healthier than tamarind and having lots of health benefits like it helps in digestion,weight loss etc… But ayala vattichahtu with kudam puli is so delicious and spicy. You can also prepare this with tamarind.
