  2. Dear Sreelekha
    Dushera and Durga puja greetings to you .
    I was bit busy , cd not see all your posts. Now will read all.
    I like the recipe...I can get the real taste now, I remember the fish Molee taste in Kuwait , way side restaurants. I am sure that was cooked with minimum expenses for the poor Indian lot there.
    I shall try soon...need to get the fish you have specified. I have some sardines...I dont think it will be good for this dish. Else I will try sweet water Rohu fish.
    Have a nice week
