Spicy Fish Kebab

Fish

Unpredictable weather isn’t it in Manila….morning hate to swim and the moment I finish swimming shivering half the time the sun is high up in the sky.Summer,Monsoon,Autumn, Spring etc….ask me and I have no answer.Ask me about food I have all the answer can have anything anytime but no desserts other than Ice cream but nowadays I am crazy about SanzRival…..anyone who knows the recipe please do share with me…I don’t like  desserts but give me SanzRival and I will look as if I was starving since ages:-).I even forget  the phrase….”Sharing is Caring :-)”.

You might be guessing that today’s recipe is a Dessert hmmm on the contrary its some spicy fish kebab.

It’s been sometime that I have left cooking and enjoying food contra outside. Yesterday when I went to get my grocery I noticed some fish kebab in the chiller section and I badly wanted to have some somehow controlled my temptations but  decide to make it at home. Picked few Creamy Dory from the fish section and hurried home .

How are you guys…enjoying. I am enjoying every bit of my stay in manila,shopping,having fun exploring new places and trying yummy food in every alternative restaurant.Hey did you guys visit EastManila Club…if not you should definitely spend a day there with your kids they will love it.The beach waves ….haha it makes you feel as if you are in the beach. The waves though artificial is so strong that hubby wont allow me to go far and my frens kept an eye on me after my drowning incident in Blue Coral Resort, Batangas.

Next we plan to go to Hong kong,hope to get a good deal .I love to travel but with my small kid its at times so difficult but no option can’t go anywhere without him :-).Intend to learn few authentic recipes there too especially street food :-).I love to try my hands on   authentic recipes  .

Today I would make some Meatballs  for Spaghetti .Its a typical Pinoy recipe and I learnt it from one of the resort guy in East Manila Club.The original recipe is with Beef but I used Chicken as we don’t eat Beef.

Rava Dosa

 
 Introducing myself to Dosa….home made :-). I love Dosa and can have it anytime.For those who don’t know what Dosa is-Its a staple food of South India as well as in Sri Lanka. Rice is grounded thinly to form a batter-it can also be replaced with rice flour or semolina for aRava Dosa.Dosa is usually served with sambar and coconut chutneyas side dish and with potato as filling.However the side dish varies according to region or preferences and filling is also optional unless its masala Dosa.
 I remember when I was young whenever we went to restaurant I would only eat Dosa.I am a great fan of Dosa and Idli and so is my son.When my mother in law is around she  always make it for me and she is awesome cook. Being inspired from her I decided to try my hands on one….probably the easiest one 🙂 ,”Rava Dosa”.Luckily it was good though not as yummy as hers..”Will work harder next time”-sentence learnt from my 3-year-old son who keeps repeating this whenever he  does not want to do something :-).
