Batter fried crispy white fish with indian spices. Gluten free.


When I was in India and working on The Pink CakeBox, the cook at my parents’ house would make amazing crispy Amritsari fish. Growing up I was never into seafood but somewhere along the line, that has changed. I am still not too experimental but I am better at trying out stuff.

Even when I was not into seafood, Amritsari Fish is one thing I would still eat without creating a fuss, probably because it is fried. Summer vacations at my grandparents always meant Amritsari fish and tandoori chicken for snacks. Dal makhani, butter chicken and butter naan for dinner, and ice cream for dessert. No wonder I was a fat kid.

Bianca and I met by chance. My originally scheduled City Surf Class got cancelled so I took the one that she was the instructor for. Even though I would have liked to hate her for making me completely out of breath and almost feel like dying, I immediately liked her for her energy. We got talking after the class and I learned about her blog TooBu. We exchanged our numbers and met over coffee. That’s when I met the second TooBu girl, Lita. We spoke a lot over coffee and worked over a collaboration.
The TooBu girls wanted to come and see me cook two recipes, one Indian and one anything else I felt like. Since both Lita and Bianca are fitness enthusiasts, and their blog revolves around holistic living, I thought of sharing this Split Mung Bean Dal recipe with their blog followers. I also shared the coconut lime zucchini bread with them.

There is a very popular summer time street drink in India called Banta. Some know it as Goli Soda, others call it heaven in a bottle especially when they have been traveling in the scorching roads of Delhi.

Masala Nimbu Soda aka Banta aka Goli Soda aka heaven in a bottle is basically a carbonated version of the summer favorite lemonade with an indian twist of chaat masala and black salt. And as part of this week’s GMT (belated GMT now- I apologize for that) I am sharing the recipe today.

Sprouts Farmers Market is doing a roundup of recipes that you can make for your Summer Olympics watch party. And what better recipe to share than a refreshing summer drink. Opening ceremony is in 2 days guys and while you don’t need to throw a get together to make this, this would be great to serve if you had guests over.
