When Bamini made me this traditional dish from Valvettithurai I was a bit apprehensive — dried fish has quite a pungent odour — but to my surprise it was very tasty. If you can’t find good-quality dried fish, fresh fish is a wonderful alternative, but you will need to double the quantity of salt and roasted curry powder.
