Mackerel / Ayala Fry (Kerala Style)

Guess what I found in the grocery store the other day - 'fresh, cleaned' mackerel (ayala)!!! It was not Indian mackerel but Atlantic mackerel (aka Boston mackerel), which differ in appearance from the former. I was very surprised to find fresh mackerel here but it was not as fresh as the mackerel sold by the local fish sellers in Kerala who go from house to house to sell their latest catch. Or, maybe it's just that I don't want to admit that anything I get here is as good as what I used to get back home! Anyways, I fried them and it brought back good old memories. My son loved it too and he said he want more of the lobster! I didn't try to correct him for the moment because a mere name change can make say "I don't like it"...
