Kerala Fish Molee Recipe / Fish Molee/ Fish Cooked in Mildly Spiced Coconut Milk

In memory of my Mother……
"There never was a woman like her. She was gentle as a dove and brave as a lioness... The memory of my mother and her teachings were, after all, the only capital I had to start life with, and on that capital I have made my way."
~ Andrew Jackson

Today is my mom's birthday and this post is dedicated to her memory.... even if her body is not amidst us.... her soul will always be there to guide and help us overcome all life's difficulties...... she was a great mother and an even greater human being and she always wanted her kids to follow in her footsteps, to be gentle and compassionate, kind and loving, patient and forgiving and all that my brother and I are today we owe to our mom.....
