With the aim of helping locals and small scale industries to eliminate manpower, save time, and thereby make the segregation of fish more efficient, four students from Agnel Institute of Technology and Design, Assagao worked on developing a fish sorting system which uses image processing. The group comprised of Sahil Deosekar, Gauri Halankar, Amey Patil, and Devashree Samant. The team was mentored by professor, Gauri Gaunekar and professor, Mrunal Sawant. “On an average fish consumption in Goa is 70 to 90 tonnes a day.

You can eat all the layers at once or peel one layer at a time and savour each one. Dodol Dodol is made using coarsely ground raw paddy rice flour, black jaggery, coconut milk, and cashew nuts. The coconut is ground and the juice/ milk is extracted. It is traditionally cooked on firewood. The end result is a pudding-like sweet which almost melts in your mouth.
