I love Sundays as I have guests visiting our place and I get to try new dishes. I was craving for fish the whole week and had decided to prepare all the fish delicacies today. Here goes the menu to impress my guests - Fish tawa fry, Steamed fish in banana leaf, Fish Biriyani, Fish gravy with ragi balls. It was fish overload today!
