Nethili Thokku | Dry fish gravy

yurekha vinoth | May 09, 2016 |
After many years we had dried fish. One day i found dried fish here in US international market. I dono how it will be so i always refuse to buy. Today my hubby took that fish and ask me to try. You don't believe 1/2 kg of dried fish is nearly 20$ which is approx 1200 INR. For the worth of money i tried and tasted our native food. So happy after soo long years we both enjoy eating dried fish recipes. I also did nethili fry/ Karuvodu kuzhambu too.. Yummy :)  Nethili karuvodu spl :)
