Unusual Sign – Questionable Culinary Choices!

Unusual CurryCall me old- fashioned but I prefer Chicken!

One of the (many) reasons to marry a South Indian – Mangalore Fish Curry!

Walking into the kitchen this morning my nostrils were hit by a tantalizing smell, one that also aroused Tommy from his slumber.
The Boss had decided to make one of my favourite dishes, Mangalore Fish Curry.
One of the, of course, countless bonuses of being married to such an angelic creature as The Boss, is that she is a magician in the kitchen. Something my ever present friend Tommy thanks me for on a daily basis.
So here is a visual journey through the creation of a delicious lunch:

Have to go now. Tommy and I have a meal to finish!

By the way, this was the first plate of many! And if for any strange reason there is any left over (not likely), Mangalore Fish Curry and fried eggs is a breakfast made in heaven!
