Don’t get panic seeing the long list of ingredients but truly speaking friend if you go through the procedure then it is just some prior preparation and then a delicious dish can be presented within half an hour and your guest book will be filled with overwhelming appreciations.
Now I will start with Orange sauce
Place a fry pan on medium flame and then let the butter melt in it, add one teaspoon of flour stir for half a minute then add the orange juice. Stir for few minutes adjust seasoning. Let it thicken and then put off the flame.
Put a pan on flame let the butter melt in it then add the chopped garlic stir and then add the balanced spinach in it. Stir for 2minutes adjust the seasoning. Then add the grated mozzarella cheese in it let the cheese melt it will give a chewy texture to the spinach. Put off the flame your spinach is ready.
For Butter Rice
Put another pan on flame let butter melt in it add the bell pepper in it. Stir for a minute then add the cooked rice (I use the good quality of basmati rice) then add salt and pepper. Mix well and you are done with the butter rice.
These steps you can prepare in the day time if you are making dish for dinner, just you should have to on your microwave to warm them up when you dish out.
For Crispy Fish
Marinate the fish fillets with salt, pepper, mustard sauce, ginger garlic paste and lemon juice for half an hour. Now take a bowl take flour and corn flour in it and now pour soda water in it (this will make your fried fish really crisp), I am not giving any measurement of it just make sure that the consistency of the batter should not be too thick or thin but the medium consistency to coat well then deep fry those fish fillets. Drain out the excess oil.
Your whole dish is complete now come the presentation part that’s up to you, you can use your creative to make it appealing but if you ask me I take small bowl place a layer of butter rice and then spread the spinach above it then another layer of rice and then press well. Now in the serving plate I just turn the bowl upside down and pour the orange in the base of the plate and place the crispy fried fish above the rice tomb.
Serve with some green salad and a delectable dessert. A rocking hit Christmas dish, I hope you will like it.
for loving, sharing, giving,
May your world be filled with warmth and good cheer this Holy season, and throughout the year! Wish your Christmas be filled with peace and love.
