 I  had  a  sumptous  dinner  at  a  small  restraunt  tonight  specialising  in  Madurai  styled  dishes...I  was  paying  the  bill  and  then  noticed  a  small  bowl  with  a  fish..
 
 The  fish  turned  out  to  be  a  loach  L.thermalis..Most  likely..couldnt  examine  the  fish  
 
 On  Quizzing  the  supervisor  learnt  that  a  large  shipment  arrives  daily  from  Madurai  and  is  a  sought  after  delicacy.
 
 This  is  used  exclusively  for  fish  curry!!!!
 
 I  am  planning  to  visit  the  place  tomo  and  hopefully  see  for  myself  the  fish  and  take  some  pics  if  possible.  This  fish  arrives  early  in  the  morning  9  AM(Sic)
 
 P.S:  The  supervisor  said  this  fish  is  quite  expensive...~1200/-  for  a  Kg  of  this  fish!...a  small  cup  of  this  gravy  sells  at  60  bucks!!!
 
 BTW  reporting  from  Coimbatore  Smile

 Loaches  in  KGS?  
 Even  if  it  is  the  termalis  that  is  found  all  over,  i  wonder  where  they  manage  to  catch  in  kilos.

 you  mean,  L.Thermalis  =  ayira  meen?
 
 If  yes,  then  you  should  hunt  for  this  fish  in  and  around  Madurai.   We  get  them  there  alive  sometimes,  I  mean  ayirai  meen.

 Too  bad  their  shipment  did  not  come.*  
 
 Balaji:  This  indeed  is  the  thermalis.I  confirmed  with  the  lone  surviving  fish  in  that  bowl!.  If  it  were  the  Gambusia  @1200/-  per  KG  ,  I  would  meet  you  in  a  brand  new  Merc  soon  :)
 
 Thillu.  The  L.thermalis  is  a  very  common  loach  found  in  most  streams  in  S.  India
 
 *  I  am  not  sure  if  they  were  also  put  off  by  me  and  my  camera!

 I  am  not  sure  L.thermalis  is  Aiyra  meen,  but  it  is  not  caught  in  streams  in  Kilos  they  are  cultured  in  ponds  this  loach  is  sold  alive  mostly.  1200  Rs  is  almost  6  times  high  for  a  kilo  and  it  is  pretty  common  in  Madurai  available  through  out  the  year.

 Vyas  :  
 
 Forget  the  Merc.  Give  me  the  contact  details  of  the  restaurant.  Il  provide  them  with  a  life  time  supply  of  the  Thermalis.  Wild  caughts  they  will  be.  I  can  throw  in  a  few  tonnes  of  the  G.Girius  as  well.
 
 I  am  still  wondering  how  they  cook  it  though???  Seem  to  have  very  little  flesh/meat.  Should  try  them  soon.
 
 I  always  thought  loaches  were  the  worst  tasting  fish  in  the  world  cos  thats  the  only  fish  my  cats  haven  eaten  yet.  Just  about  everything  (including  other  cats)  has  gone  in  except  the  loaches  .

 Which  shop  is  this  Vyas?  Maybe  they  were  just  exagerating  the  money  they  are  spending  for  it...

 The  cost  could  well  have  been  exaggerated...esp  after  what  we  spent  and  ordered  last  night!....I  have  no  means  to  verify
 
 I  did  ask  for  the  recipe  for  the  dish...They  said  it  was  salted(Which  kills  the  fish).then  marinated  with  curd,  coconut  milk,  turmeric  and  spices.Then  a  gravy  is  made...  Drinking  
 
 Will  visit  them  later  this  week  and  see  if  I  can  taste  this  dish.
 
 The  name  of  this  place  is  "Amma  Madurai  Mess"...It  is  located  on  Power  house  road...GOOOOOD  FOOOOD

 Are  they  the  same  fish?  My  mom  once  prepared  aiyra  meen  at  home  (quite  a  long  time  ago),  and  what  I  recall  of  those  fish  werent  as  big  as  the  ones  that  come  up  in  net  when  I  search  for  l.thermalis.  They  look  similar  though.  But  the  article  in  loaches  online  says  they  grow  to  3  inches  in  length.  Many  of  the  fish  we  got  for  cooking  were  alive  and  I  had  a  whole  bunch  of  the  live  ones  put  in  a  cement  tank  in  which  they  were  for  a  long  time  until  the  water  got  accidentally  contaminated.  But  I  think  the  largest  grew  to  max  2"  and  not  more  than  that.
 The  price  per  kg  also  seems  very  steep.  But  I  would  not  be  surprised  if  the  price  of  cooked  fish  is  higher,  as  cleaning  the  fish  for  cooking  is  a  royal  pain.
