Chicken Liver Fry

Chicken liver fry is a delicious dish with great aroma and taste. It has very little,thick gravy or to say it is a rather dry roasted form. I have added lots of pepper to give a nice spice kick to the liver fry. You can reduce the amount of chilly powder and add more of pepper powder if you like the peppery flavor.This goes well with rice, parattas and chapati.

Ingredients
Chicken liver- 1 lb
Shallots thinly sliced- 10- 12
Garlic crushed- 4 tsp
Turmeric powder- 1/2 tsp
Chilly powder- 1 tsp
Pepper powder- 1 1/2 tsp
Garam Masala - 1 tsp
salt to taste
oil- 2 tsp
Coconut oil- 1 tsp/ butter 1/2 tsp
curry leaves

Cut liver into desired sizes. For cleaning add half tsp of turmeric and salt and gently rub with your fingers (just like you marinate) and after a few seconds wash this out completely by bringing it under running water. Wash the liver three to four time and place it in  a strainer so that all blood and water drains out.( or you can soak in milk and drain out completely)  Keep it aside.

In a heavy bottom pan add oil and first add in curry leaves and when a nice aroma comes add garlic and saute for a few seconds. Now add chopped shallots and fry till golden brown. Mix all the dry powders and spices and make a paste by adding two to three tsps of water. Add this and fry till oil separates. In goes the liver pieces and gently coat with the masalas. Pour in 1/3 cup of water ( do not add more water and do not overcook..it will become rubbery) and close the lid. Cook in medium for about five to six minutes till all the water has evaporated. Finally add coconut oil and fresh curry leaves and dry roast it in medium heat till browned up and all the water has evaporated and the skin tightening a bit. Serve warm.

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
Oil- 1 tsp


For shrimp masala

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.

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…
