My father is a fantastic cook. So were a majority of the men on his side of the family. I guess I have inherited that gene from the “XL” family. That was the name of the hotel my family used to own and run for many a years pre & post independent India in Fort Cochin, Kerala, however after the passing of my grandfather it was all downhill from then. That’s another story.Growing up in the Middle East, Kuwait to be precise in the late 70’s was so different. The people, the place even the food. We were then a very small community with origins from the north Malabar living in Kuwait and we used to have some fabulous parties at either our house or some one else from within the close-knit group. The fish cutlets that we used to take or serve were always a big hit, despite the preparation being combined effort between Amma & Achan, he used to end up getting all the credit.This is my rendition of their recipe & yes we do strictly follow the "Assembly Line" method..
