Aug 12, 2016
He bought a large packet of Tilapia fillets last week. He is a crazy fan of fish and can eat it everyday, whereas, I don't like to eat 'macher jhol' / 'mach vaja' each and every day like him. I get bored very quickly. So, this week I made these 'tandoori fish tikkas' along with some rice and simple daal. They came out delicious and also uplifted the taste of our boring lunch.

This particular recipe calls for 'bombay duck fish' / loitta maach, but we couldn't get fresh bombay duck here, that's why I used rohu.
