Goan Fish Curry


This is a simple Goan style fish curry which I recently tried . This fish curry tasted great ,bit tangy and spicy. Goan fish curry is very famous because of its unique flavor, tangy and sweet blend especially due to the use of coconut milk and tomatoes. Here I have used king fish.This recipe is also equally good for other sea foods like prawns and squid.

Ingredients
Fish - 1 lb
Whole red chilly- 5-7
Coconut milk -1 cup
Shallots/onions chopped- 1/2 cup
Tomatoes- 1 small
Cumin- 1/3 tsp
Turmeric powder- 1/3 tsp
Pepper powder- 1/2 tsp
Coriander  powder-2 tsp
Ginger- 1 inch
Garlic- 4-5
Tamarind juice- small ball
Fennel powder- 1/3 tsp
Vinegar- 1 tsp
Mustard seeds- 1/3 tsp
Curry leaves- 2 springs
Salt to taste
Oil


Chop onions and tomatoes and keep aside. In a blender make a paste of red chillies, pepper,coriander, cumin,fennel ,ginger, garlic and tamarind pulp and keep aside.
Heat oil in a heavy bottom pan and splutter mustard seeds and add in chopped onions and curry leaves and saute till golden brown. Pour in the grounded paste, turmeric, and salt and fry till oil separates. Add tomatoes and saute till soft. Stir in coconut milk and another half cup of water and bring it to simmer. Gently slide in the fish pieces, add one tsp of vinegar cover and cook till done.


Try this..


Hope you will all enjoy.

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.

Shrimp Biryani

Shrimp Biryani has a wonderful taste and flavor which makes it stand apart as one of the most popular and favorite among Biryani lovers. There are different ways to make an authentic shrimp Biryani. This is not an authentic one. It is inspired by the Goa shrimp Biryani which makes use of coconut milk and tomatoes instead of yogurt. When i read about this i had an instinct to make it as I wished to understand why Goa food is unique is in its flavor and taste. This recipe actually called for the traditional method of making it with raw shrimp and uncooked rice cooked in coconut milk. But I did not try that fearing that I will end up with a pulao. Luckily my method proved successful and the Biryani came out well and there is a wonderful aroma now in my kitchen.

Ingredients
For Rice
Basmati Rice- 1 1/2 cups
Water- 3 cups
Cardamon-2
Cinnamon- 1 stick
cloves - 2
Salt to taste

If you wish for some spicy non vegetarian recipes here is one to relish on...nadan mutton curry made with authentic Kerala spices.

Thai Fried Bananas

Thai Fried Bananas
Thai fried bananas is very popular in restaurants and also a yummy street food. When I first read the recipe it sounded interesting and I wanted to replicate this popular street food at home.It is made with Thai bananas and the batter is made with coconut milk and rice flour. The first time I saw these bananas fitters, I thought that it was just like the Kerala pazham pori/ plantain fitters. It looks somewhat similar,but this had a unique taste and favor.It has enticing flavor and taste of sweet banana, coconut milk and fresh grated coconut. The rice flour makes it super crispy.  This is a sure winner if you have sudden guests at home. 

You can find Thai banana at any South Asian market. If you cannot find them use any banana with a firm texture to make these fitters. Ripe plantains can also be used. It is a sweet dessert and can be served on its own,but to make it extra special serve it with some vanilla ice cream. Give this recipe a try, you will surely love it.
