  20. Dear Babli
    I feel great that you visited my blog and tagged it. But I rarely post any recipe.
    Being a Bong I look at this one 1st :-), From where did you get Puti machh ( or mourola??) in Australia??)
    I cook the same way but your variation is quite attractive.
    When I was in Kuwait, I used to buy all small fish like Puti, Mourola, Kajoli, Tangra etc from Bangladeshi shop..just too good!
    I also like your combination of recipes, from hardcore Punjabi / north Indian to Bengali dish.
    Let me see which one to try, may be the Mushroom dish..looks great.
    will be following your blog.
    Have a nice and exciting week
    best wishes
