Curry Mela 12th

We have this load shedding here and there was no current till 10:30. And somehow my Broadband cable gets disconnected without power. (I have to speak to the vendor.) and so somehow i got late posting this weekend's curry mela, Curry mela 12th.
And yesterday It was late when I got home from work.
I didn't even go for my Friday night Beer.

So I woke up early, i mean I didn't go back to sleep when the house-maid came( and she comes quite early as she need to finish Before I start washing and dressing up for work), and started rounding up. And then when I was about 9 entries done, the current went off.. Gee.

But then I took that time to go to the market, to get some fresh mackerals and it is being cooked as I write this. I am not kidding. I started it anyway since there was no electricity and couldn't connnect to the internet. The smell is just right I tell ya..

And hey! This is not an april fool's joke.

Oh! So without further ado... here goes the 12th Curry mela at Anthony's Kitchen, The Bachelor Cooking blog. Let me start with the entries which were submitted by bloggers specially for this event.
