#rhomesecrets Recipe : Paaplet Che Hooman (pomfret Goan Curry)

is such a wonderful experience for every home cook. I was thrilled to see how everyone loved and appreciated this dish I made. All the chefs at Renaissance Mumbai were a great help and without their assisstance this may have been possible. I prepared a typical Goan dish using Pomfret, - a fish which is loved by all. This is the most authentic way of cooking it! Thanks to the chefs at Renaissance and the cordination by Secret Indian Recipe Team for this event. Here's my recipe for all of you to try at home!
