  1. Seena...looks great..I don't eat fish yet this looks so great :-)

  2. I love fish dishes. And if it is done the indian ways i love them more.
    But my hubby and daughter don't like the indian fish dishes so i jnever make it for my self.
    I woudn't mind just to come to your place for having them. It looks yummy.
    Just give me a plate of simple white rice with it :-)

  3. i am a totaly fish person But i dread eating curries other than cocnut based. Yours looks v nice, i think its about time i start getting used to fish as eaten across india.
