After making this naadan Pala style Kerala meen (fish) pattichath, I can tell Alexander Pope ‘not a fool yet’.
First of all, thank you dear wife, who treads with angels or more when it comes to cooking, for letting me try this dish.
The lockdown situation didn’t give much of a choice for fish and we got some ‘Vatta’ (don’t know English name) but the local shopkeeper said it’s good. Anyway it’s great to the pocket that the desired Seer Fish wasn’t available.
It smells good. I couldn’t taste as I am on intermittent fasting and will have to wait for Sunu to read the judgment.
I used this recipe, had earthen pot, used coconut oil and even performed the grandmother’s tips.
