    Sailu garu,
    The dish looks so mouth watering, Nice pics!
    I have a question: my husband absolutely hates the smell of fish when he bites into it. Can you please let me know which variety of fish available in USA would turn odorless after cooking or at least smells the least after cooking.
    This would be a great help because I stopped cooking fish and would like to cook it at least for my 2yr old son, because of its health benefits.
    Thanks,
    Priyanka.

      Use cat fish which is odorless and tastes good. Tilapia is good too with a slight odor though.
