I just had lovely fish dish, which I thought to share. I took a slice of seer, marinated it in a little vinegar, with a sprinkling of salt, lots of crushed (pressed) garlic, and roasted at 500 F for 12 mins, with sliced Bombay onion and a capsicum. Its served with a thick sweet turmeric sauce; (two heaped spoons of coconut milk power, to 1/4 cup of hot water, two pinches of turmeric, one pinch of salt, a big teaspoon of sugar, and chille pieces) with pickled olives on the side.
Pradeep Jeganathan was born and raised in Colombo, Sri Lanka, where he lives and works. He began to cook when he discovered, as an undergraduate in the US, that MacDonald's was terrible. He continued, when he realized that girls like a guy who knows to cook. After he took up photography as a hobby, he got into shooting food. He has eaten a lot of cold meals since, but he hasn't stopped, because taking a photograph, helps him remember what he's eaten. (He eats a lot, and some times, he forgets). His food photos have been published in a variety of international and Sri Lankan print magazines and web sites and his food photo/recipe columns have appeared Zero77 & Spectrum ("Achcharu") and will soon appear in Ink. He's been a featured chef on ETV's The Home Gourmet, his cooking and food photos have been the subject of a feature article in Sri Lanka's Sunday Times; his food blog has also been featured in Femina.in -- the Indian women's magazine.
