4-5 tsp Clarified Butter (ghee)
Salt to taste
Cashewnuts & Raisins As Required
2 tsp Sugar
2&1/2 Cup Warm Water
Oil for Deep Frying


Wash rice and soak it in water for 30 minutes.
Marinate fish with salt and turmeric powder for 15-20 minutes. Deep fry fish pieces and keep those aside.
Heat 2 tsp clarified butter (ghee) in a deep frying pan. Add chopped garlic, saute for 20 seconds, then add sliced onion. Fry till onion turns into golden brown.
Add bay leaf, chilli paste, ginger paste and 1/4 tsp garam masala powder; saute for 2 minutes on medium low heat. Mix fried fish pieces into this spice mixture and fry for another 2-3 minutes, remove from pan and set aside.

Add remaining 2 tsp clarified butter (ghee) in the same pan. Add 1/4 tsp garam masala powder, turmeric powder, cashewnuts, raisins, rice and salt in it. Fry for 2-3 minutes on low heat.
Add warm water in it and give a nice stir. Higher the flame till it starts to boil. Simmer the stove, cover and cook exactly for 15 minutes.

Switch off the heat now. Arrange fried fish pieces, sugar and onion mixture on the top. Cover it for another 10 minutes.

As this the first challenge of this event and my co-blogger partner is noone rather than Nirmala Gurunathan, a wonderful co-blogger friend and a foodie writer of Nirmala's Kitchen. My secret ingredients were condensed milk and flour, I used both of the ingredients here to make this mouthwatering cake. It was really very dense.

Grease and floured a 9" cake pan.
Preheat oven to 180 C / 350 F. In a large bowl, well combine condensed milk, flour, baking powder, melted butter, eggs, 1/2 tsp vanilla essence and orange zest. Add walnuts in it, fold again.
Pour the batter on the cake pan.

In the mean time, heat a non stick pan. Arrange round slices of orange on it. Sprinkle sugar and remaining vanilla essence on it. Heat both sides of the orange pieces, so that orange glazes well.
Place the glazed orange pieces on the top of the cake batter now.

In my childhood days, my mom used to make this fish curry specially on Winter days when fresh cauliflower and bhetki mach were easily available in markets. Still I remember the taste and flavor of this fish curry and I made exactly like my mom’s way. Bhetki is my favorite fish as it is soft and with very less bones. If you like fish then definitely you love to have this light fish curry with loads of tender cauliflower, new potato, juicy tomato and the touch of coriander leaves, which is always flavorsome and luscious with plain boiled rice.


7-8 pcs Barramundi Fish (bhetki mach)
2 Medium Sized Potatoes, Peeled & Cut Each Potato in 4 Cubes
8-10 Florets of Cauliflower
1 Finely Chopped Onions
2 tsp Ginger Paste
1 tsp Garlic Paste
1 Medium Tomato (chopped)
Whole Garam Masala (1-2 Bay Leaves, 1/4 tsp Caraway Seeds, 3 Cardamoms, 4 Cloves)
2 tsp Turmeric Powder
1 tsp Red Chili Powder
1 tsp Freshly Pounded Cumin Seeds
½ tsp Garam Masala Powder
1 tsp Sugar (optional)
2 tsp Clarified Butter (ghee)
2 tbsp Finely Chopped Cilantro (coriander leaves)
½ Cup Mustard Oil
Salt to taste


Wash fish pieces nicely and make those pat dry. Marinate fish with little salt and 1 tsp turmeric powder. Mix well and set it aside for 15-20 minutes.
In the mean time, add cauliflower florets in boiling water. Cover and cook for 3 minutes. Drain the excess water. Wash cauliflower once again in cold water, drain water completely and set it aside.
Heat 4 tbsp mustard oil in a wok or kadai. When it is smoking hot, carefully place 2-3 fish pieces on it. Fry till golden brown on each side, it will take 3 minutes to fry each side. Remove from oil and keep those aside. Continue the process with remaining fish pieces.
Smear potato and cauliflower florets with salt and little turmeric powder. Add potato in the same oil and sauté for 4-5 minutes on medium flame. Once potato done, drain those from the oil and add cauliflower florets in the remaining oil. Fry for 2-3 minutes again drain those florets and keep aside.
Heat remaining oil in the same pan. Add bay leaf and whole garam masala in it. Saute for 30 seconds, till a nice aroma comes out. Mix onion in it, fry till it turns golden brown. Add ginger-garlic paste, sauté for 2minutes, mix cumin paste and sauté for another 2 minutes.
Add chopped tomatoes, salt and  red chili powder. Fry till tomato turns mushy and leaves oil from the sides. Add sugar, clarified butter and 1&1/2 cup of warm water. Fold well. Let it boil. Amount of water depends on the amount of gravy you want to be on the dish.
Now add fried potatoes, cover and cook for 5 minutes. Add fried fish pieces and cook for 3 minutes more. Add fried cauliflower, cover and cook for 2 minutes. Finally switch off the heat now. Sprinkle coriander leaves and garam masala powder on the top. Cover the lid and leave it for 5 minutes.
