Cauliflower Stir Fry




Cauliflower stir fry is a quick and simple dish. It can be used as a side dish for rice or as an appetizer. Cauliflower is a lovely vegetable,  nutritious , low in fat and high in dietary fiber. This is somewhat a roasted form of cauliflower which my family enjoyed. Here I have used the pan fry method. You can also roast them in the oven. Try this easy recipe.

Ingredients
Cauliflower florets - 2 cup
Onion - 1 medium
Ginger garlic paste- 2 tsp
Chilly powder- 1 tsp
Pepper powder- 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder- 1/3 tsp
Garam Masala- 1/2 tsp
Egg- 1
Corn flour- 1 tsp
Oil - 2 tsp
Salt to taste

Cut and clean cauliflower florets add salt and 5 to 6 tsp of water and cook in high in microwave oven for four minutes. Beat egg and mix in ginger- garlic paste, fried onion paste,chilly powder,pepper powder, turmeric and garam masala and mix with the cauliflower. Gently mix in the masala with out breaking the florets.Sprinkle corn flour ( I took half amount of corn flour and half of bread crumbs) and toss them gently. Heat a frying pan with two tsp of oil and spread out the cauliflower and it get roasted in medium heat for a minute. Stir them occasionally and put off heat when all sides are roasted. Serve warm( if you like add lemon juice just before serving).

Spicy Kerala Chicken Roast is another nadan recipe and a family favorite. It is a dry version and is great accompaniment with rice, chapathi or fried rice.The chicken in this recipe is usually deep fried or shallow fried, (some times whole stuffed chicken ) and then coated with the masala.

Meat Ball Curry/Kofta Curry

Meat Ball Curry/Kofta Curry
Today's recipe is a delicious meat ball/ kofta curry which goes well with rice, pulao or naan. If you want to try something different for dinner try this kofta curry. This is a great dish to serve when you have friends over for dinner. Kofta curry is definitely worth a try-juicy and tender meat balls are cooked in a  rich tangy mildly spiced tomato based gravy enriched with aromatic spices.

The first time I tried the kofta curry was in Delhi and it was creamy  rich curry with lots of fresh cream and the meat balls were cooked over charcoal for a smoky flavor. So if you want that authentic flavor try barbecuing the meatballs before adding to the gravy. I wanted to try my own version of kofta curry and added cashew nut paste instead of cream and my family enjoyed for dinner with vegetable pulao and naan .For a richer, creamier texture you can also add cream. You can use minced mutton of beef or even try a vegetarian version of this curry with mashed pota…
