Chili Pepper Chicken

Chili pepper chicken may sound a bit too spicy. But it is a chicken curry I made using Cubenella peppers - a variety of sweet pepper which is extensively used in Puerto Rico's cuisine.  I really love the combination of peppers with chicken as it gives it a nice flavor. The pepper I used is tender and green, but you can also use the matured ones which is scarlet red or you can also make with bell peppers. This curry had a wonderful flavor and taste with a combination of pepper, coconut, peanuts,and other spices.


Ingredients
Chicken - 1 lb
Onion chopped- 1 cup
Chili Pepper chopped- 1 cup
Ginger garlic paste - 3 tsp
Chilly flakes- 1tsp
Pepper powder- 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder- 1/3 tsp
Roasted coconut- 1 1/2 tsp
Roasted peanut - 2 tsp
Coriander powder- 1 tsp
Garam masala- 1 1/2 tsp
Soya Sauce - 2tsp 
Lemon juice- 2 tsp
Nutmeg powder- 1/3 tsp
Oil
Salt to taste




Heat oil in a heavy bottom pan and saute onions till  golden brown. Add peppers, salt and saute for about two minutes followed by ginger garlic paste. Add chicken and stir fry for a minute and dash in the spices, coriander powder and chilly flakes.Pour one cup of warm water or chicken stock and cook till the chicken is almost done. Roasted coconut and peanut and make into a fine powder and add into the curry,along with soya sauce, lemon juice and nutmeg powder. Simmer for another minute. Serve warm with plain rice or fried rice.

Kerala Fish Curry ( Mulaku Curry)

Kerala's Red Fish Curry or the Mulaku Charu is hot and spicy fish curry. Its rich color is from Kashmiri chilly powder which is less spicy when compared to regular chilly powder.

Fish curry and rice or fish curry and kappa pukku is the absolute comfort food for every malayali. The state is blessed  with long coast line, backwaters and lake and Keralites are great fish eaters. Red fish curry tastes awesome and you can find this type of fish curry everywhere-in  homes, restaurants,toddy shops or boat houses for tourists. Even though this curry is staple for the malayalis, you will still find a lot of regional variation to this recipe. Each region and each home has its own adaption of fish curry.

The tamarind used in this recipe is Kudampuli/ Gambooge/Malabar tamarind. You can find this in abundance in Central and North Kerala. This souring agent has lots of medicinal value and helps aid digestion.
Malayalis love adding coconut to every dish, but this curry is an exception. But it…

Stuffed Squid

Stuffed Squid
Squid is a unique and yummy sea food delicacy that can be prepared in a variety of ways. Squid rings or fried calamari's is a the most popular and is a great appetizer. Squid is staple in many seafood restaurants. It is also popular street food in several south Asian countries.Squid is enjoyed in the coastal belt of south India especially in Kerala and Tamilnadu.In Kerala squid is known as koonthal or Kanava.

Squid is one of my favorite sea foods-roast squid, deep fried,stir fried or squid curry-I love them all.Squid has a mild flavor and gentle sweetness and marries well to any flavor and taste of your choice. Squid can be stuffed before roasting or frying,its tubular body called mantle is great for stuffing. You can get creative with the stuffing- use prawns,fish,pork, cheese, bread crumbs,olives,rice or anything of your choice.

Today's recipe is a stuffed squid with spicy prawn filling.The dish is inspired by a similar preparation from the book Classic H…
