Fish korma South Indian style.

 Marrying a seafood-a-holic, my search for fish and other seafood recipes never end. I ve tried fish korma in many Kerala restaurants. We and me or a big fan, but I never know the recipe.

I started learning cooking from my grandmother, Mrs. Gunaseeli, who gave me her recipes and tips and some measurement tools for making them. The red measuring cup that I use in my recipes was once owned by my granny. My grandmother is very passionate about cooking and travel. She has written many cook books. This blog is one way to document her writing and to make it available for everyone.
