I usually get the live tilapia fish from the Asian grocery store.Where we can select which fish we want,then they will cut it and clean it according to our choice.It will be so fresh.After we have moved to different location its very hard for me to find a new Asian/chinese grocery store.I just bought the fish from the frozen section.
I had a wonderful flasback about the fish fry..One of my neighbour in my hometown madurai gave me a fish fry to eat..I took it back to home and while I was eating.. My grandma asked me what you were eating..as she is a pure vegetarian but she knows we are carnivores..So I said I am eating plaintain fry..She asked me can I have one bite..I said ok and gave a small piece..I know its hard for her to recogonize because she had alil bad sight..You know what she replied..Wow Look how she fried like soft flower..Your mom never makes like this..I laughed immidiately and said it is fish..She was shocked and started calling all the gods name and asking sorry..She is not with me anymore..But I love her so much..
