Fish Cake and Chili Fish(using fish cake)

         I remembered the day-we (Kamalika,Sayantani and me) were sitting and enjoying cheese cake, then a young girl with casual dressed( jeans,kurti and side bag entered)was approaching us with waving her hands with saying 'hi friends’ I 'm late'. Yes she was Anwesha the very first time I met her at South City and we did lunch together at Main Land China. Our 2nd meeting was at our KFB potluck party and recently at our KFB Bake Sale. I was just impressed by her personality and body language. She is a Smart, sober, determined and multitasking and at the same time she is a scholar, a traveler, a foodie and last but not the least a Travel & Food blogger. Yes Anwesha Bhattacharya is the star of the week from “Peanuts on the Road – a travel and Food Blog”.
           Two of her recipes which I really liked and also tasted at our Potluck Party were “chicken hawaiian salad” and “Fish Cake”. I made the chicken hawaiian salad on my daughter’s Birthday party and it was came out amazing, all praised the taste and it was just vanished at once you can say.. :), But I am sharing and recreating another amazing dish “Fish Cake ” from her blog and also extend the dish to Chili Fish(using Fish Cake Leftover).
