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.

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.

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.
