Lusog Notes

This dish is high in vitamin A which is important for normal vision and healthy skin as well as for protection from infections. It also has niacin that promotes normal digestion and healthy skin.

Lining the casserole with banana leaf and kamias removes the "malansa" aroma and taste of the fish.
