Tandoori Fish tastes like heaven and guess what, it is healthy. If cooked properly it becomes so soft that even any granpa can have it without having the teeth on ! With Basa fish the taste is out of the world.
You can make it a part of the main course or the starter. The first time I cooked it, all my estimates about how much we can eat at each meal just failed - we had it as starter, but wanted to repeat it in the main course as well !
Basa fishes are basically from Vietnam, I am sure it has made its way to all corners of the world. But not all stores might keep it, so better to google a bit about cosmo stores at your vicinity !
Down to business, I will cover the Ingredients, and a description of the cooking process. And, will leave garnishing to your imagination :)
