  • Butter 125 gm
  • Caster sugar ½ cup
  • Eggs 2
  • Flour 2 cups
  • Baking powder 1 tbsp
  • Sour cream 1 ¼ cups
  • Apples (peeled and sliced) 2
  • Walnuts (chopped) ½ cup
  • Caster sugar 2 tbsp
  • Cinnamon 1 tsp


Beat butter add sugar and eggs. Fold in flour and baking powder. Add sour cream and mix and put mixture in a flat greased dish and spread. Arrange apples over the batter, sprinkle with walnuts, cinnamon and sugar. Bake at 180 degrees C for 30 minutes, cool in tin and then cut in squares.

Ingredients For The Fish:

  • Pomfrets 8
  • Salt 2 tsp
  • Dhansak masala 2 tsp
  • Lemon juice 1 lemon
  • Oil for shallow frying

For Pulao Masala:

  • Clarified butter 50 gram
  • Bay leaves 6
  • Cinnamon 1 inch piece
  • Green cardamoms 5
  • Cloves 5
  • Star Anise 2
  • Biryani masala 2 tsp
  • Ginger garlic paste 1 tbsp
  • Coriander seeds 5 tsp
  • Cumin seeds 5 tsp
  • Cayenne peppers 5
  • Salt 2 tsp
  • Yogurt 300 gram

For Rice & Garnish:

  • Basmati Rice 750 gram
  • Clarified butter 100 gram
  • Fried onions 200 gram
  • Fried cashews 150 gram
  • Coriander leaves (chopped) to garnish


For the Fish:
Clean the pomfret, chopping off the head. You can either keep the pomfret whole or cut into 2 big pieces based on your preference. Marinate the pomfret in salt, lemon juice and dhansak masala, ideally overnight but otherwise atleast for a couple of hours. At the time of serving or just prior to that, shallow fry the pomfret. Make sure the oil is very hot so that the pomfret skin does not stick to the pan. Do not overcook – it only takes 2 or 3 minutes either side as pomfret is a very delicate fish.

Pulao Masala:
In a pan, add the clarified butter. Add in all the masala ingredients except for the salt and yogurt. Roast these until the aroma of the whole spices is released
In a food processor, blend together the roasted masala, yogurt and salt. If you plan on making the pulao later, you can make this spice blend and freeze it for upto 15 days as well.

Pulao Assembly:
Cook the basmati rice until it is 3/4 cooked
Fry the fish as per the instruction above and set aside
In a pan, heat the clarified butter and add in the pulao masala. Once it is simmering, add in the rice and mix well. Use a silicon spatula when mixing to ensure the rice grain does not break. Check the rice for salt, adding more if needed. Cook until the rice is tender to eat.
To serve, in a big pot, add in the rice, fish oil and fried onion in layers. Just prior to serving, top the pulao with the fried pomfret
Garnish with the fried cashews and freshly chopped coriander. Serve with a raita of your choice or the traditional Dhansak Dal – the latter may be a bit too heavy on the palate so I recommend just the raita!
