Dry Bombay Duck Chilli Fry

Today's Father's Day brings back special memories of my dad. Other than being a wonderful, loving father, he was a talented cook , filling our lives with love and delicious meals.

I can still vividly recall the mouthwatering aromas that would fill our home as he prepared his signature dishes From his cuddi curries, meatballs frithad curry, beef lonvas with radish, carrot, turnip, and potatoes, green masala beef steak curry, crabs, Vindaloo, sarapatel, Gol fish curry, Nivti fish curry (mudskipper), kolimb, sukka jawala, sukka bombil batat, and the list goes on. The memories of his delicious meals and his love always remain with me.

I cherish these beautiful memories forever .
