Sole fish is the tasty delicate fish  which is mostly enjoyed in coastal region . In konkani language, sole fish is known as Lepaa. There are many dishes prepared with sole fish. But this particular curry is very popular in Karwar and Karwaris enjoy it  mainly  with hot boiled brown rice or white rice.  Do try this curry and  I am very sure you too will enjoy it...

  • Sole fish - 10 medium nos, cleaned and washed.
  • Onion - 1 medium, chopped
