      Hi Jameela

      I’ve heard about meen mulakittathu, but never knew its recipe…btw, thanks for trying this. Happy to hear that you liked it :)

      Regarding the color, there is no camera trick :) I think this is more of reddish colour and may be the light gives it a yellowish tint.

      Presently I dont have any plans to publish a book. Am just doing this as a hobby :)

      Cheers
