This is what happens when two foodie sisters meet!! It was the weekend ,when my sister ,whos also the co-author to Namak Shamak , visited us at Nasik with her family. And it was extraordinary ,as usual..Be it the outings,eat outs or our cooking !! Its never a guest host relation between us when we are together! The last time I had been to visit her , our blog came into existence…. It was month ending,hectic as usual for my husband, who was working late , so it was more than a delight to have my sis and family at home! for company! Ofcourse my kiddo was delighted too to have his patronizing and indulging big bro come for a visit! So my toddler had a company too!! Back to the foodie aspect… my sis and her equally foodie husband,wanted a special treat,and I really wanted to indulge them in one…but unfortunately ,my home wasnt stocked with the necessary party stuff….My poor guests had to step out to fetch something for themselves… And here comes my elder sis with a pack of fish fillets!! Wow I m proud of her….I normally dont get such fancy stuff here!! So thats how the recipes happened…and my poor husband missed it!! We coupled the delicious white basa fillets with the zeastiness of Orange and added a dash of spice from chillies and flakes! A perfect mix of sweet sour and spice!



  1. Marinate the fish fillets in salt,pepper,red chilly powder,oranger zest,and the seafood sauce for 1/2 hour.
  2. Drizzle 1 tbsp oil over hot grilling pan . Spread the cornflour on a plate . Crack and lightly beat egg in a bowl and add a pinch of salt to it. Dip the marinated fillets in cornflour,on both sides. Now dip it egg and further dip it in cornflour agai
  3. Once the fillets are done , add the orange juice and chilli flakes to the grill pan and let it simmer till it thickens.Add 2 tsp of the seafood sauce and mix. Pour the hot sauce over the fillets. Serve garnished with Orange slices and Spring Onion Gr

Hi! I am Sonali, mom to a fast growing teenager and a homemaker.I love to cook, read and travel ( and in that order). I believe that travel keeps the cook ever so innovative. Each time I travel, I scourge the market places and eateries for some new ingredient or recipies. I believe that every type of cuisine has its own story to relate……One that’s fascinating.Being born and brought up in Mumbai which is often called “a melting pot of culinary delights” helped me explore and experiment with a wide range of cuisines.So come share with me the tang of lime, the bite of chilli, the fresh herbs, the crunch of raw veggies and experience the wide spectrum of textures and sharp flavours of different cusines.
