    • If you choose small then debone the fish is much difficult work..
    • This is the masala which i use for avail.. You can alter the masala by this ingredients(Coconut,Onion,Chillie powder, Coriander Powder, Jeera,Pepper,CurryLeaves), This masala gives a different flavor and taste to the fish..
    • For saluting use sambar onion, which taste better the baleri..
    • Do not add water, if you want the fish and masala is too dry to cook , then sprinkle some water and cook till they dries up.
