This is also very healthy as it requires less oil. Grilled Fish, one of the popular dishes in India, mostly served with different varieties of sauces. The fish is initially marinated in a lot of spices so that the flavors can penetrate in the inside which gives it a very flavorful taste. The Lemon Butter sauce is a very smooth sauce with a slight tangy taste, which makes the taste of the grilled fish more delightful. Grilled Fish and Lemon Butter Sauce make a great combination and can be served as a part of the main course. Grilled fish is popular in mostly the eastern states of India like West Bengal, Orrisa, Jharkhand etc. Grilled Fish with Lemon ButterSauce taste good itself also, but if required can be had with roti or rice.

    Crema catalana ("Catalan cream") or crema quemada ("Burnt cream"), is a dish similar to crème brûlée. It is traditionally served on Saint Joseph's Day (March the 19th) although nowadays it is consumed at all times of year. The custard is flavored with lemon or orange zest, and cinnamon.

The recipe with the twist of honey roasted peach is an outstanding and marvellous touch of Rachel Khoo an English chef, writer and broadcaster, with her own BBC cooking series.

  • Traditional Christmas Fruit Cake
    Cook time 120 mins

    This post is very proudly written as it has seen months worth of hard work and dedication for this special cake!I would love to say here that this lovely cake holds a special place in my heart as I would remember the teachers and friends from my childhood whose homes I would go on Christmas to have delicious goodies and come back with equally wonderful gifts!At that time I never imagined owning a blog,baking my own cake and presenting it to the world on this beautiful peace loving festival.I definitely have an emotional angle to explore especially when it comes to winters,Christmas and cake and of course cake as in this ethereal traditional fruit cake.I also remember Charles Dickens and his love for Christmas as is expressed in his works namely A Christmas Carol and especially where a small child with special needs called Tiny Tim expresses his wishes thus “God Bless Us Everyone”! I apologise to the “no booze only veg” promisers that what they term as “booze” is the only ingredient responsible for the great flavour of this cake.You will never go tipsy,never fall or feel dizzy after having a slice of this heaven!You will revel in the flavours and wonder that leave aside technology and scientific inventions,how far has mankind evolved to bring out treats as delicious as this and how long and painstaking might the inventors have waited to finally write the final and the all accepted recipe of Christmas fruitcake!However there is no compulsion and please leave out the liquor if you want and use anything from sugar syrup to Orange juice to soak the fruits and if you get Rum/Brandy essence where you live,you are more than welcome to include that,however the taste remains unbeatable for the liquor soaked fruit cake!

  • Pan fried tofu & Stir fried bean sprouts

    Living in Singapore for almost a decade "Hainese chicken rice" is a family favorite. Never tried cooking the dish at home as it is easily available all over the place. Inspired by the dish and following a basic idea from my Chinese neighbor, I tried to cook a vegetarian version of this dish and the result was simple yet a flavorful meal. My vegetarian version of a "Roasted chicken rice".
