“No one who cooks cooks alone. Even at her most solitary, a cook in the kitchen is surrounded by generations of cooks past, the advice and menus of cooks present, the wisdom of cookbook writer’s
 Laurie Colwi

So even when I try cooking from age old traditional fish recipes passed over generations, I end up experimenting it as a juxtapose of so many recipes that I have tasted, So try this and I bet it comes out so beautifully, you got to make much extra to last–till you are tired eating it. .”

Lavishly used Mustard and Carom seeds give it the zing that and the sweet taste and an immensely smooth texture of “Rohu/Rui/Rahu” (Freshwater Fish) easily absorbs it totally within.

A fish is known to be cooked well till its taste lasts further on from your tongue on to your soul!
