  1. hi,
    where can i get fried, toasted or curried DRY bombil in mumbai, even though raw dried bombil is available everywhere there dosent seem to be any eating joints that serve this awesome fish.
    help is appreciated

    • hi orion,

      alas dry bombil preparations are largely restricted to homes as restaurants shy away from selling dry bombil dishes ( i guess the smell would overpower vegetarians :).

      try getting invited to somebody’s house.
