Mulaku Bajji/Chilly Bajji




Bajji's are favorite tea time snacks and there are different verities of bajji's. Mulakku bajji or long green chilly is very common in tea stalls of South India. If you enjoy the heat of green chilly and sip of hot tea do not forget to try this delicious snack.

Ingredients
Gram flour- 1  cup
Rice flour- 2 tsp
Bajji Mulaku/ long green chilly/Banana chilly- 10
Turmeric - 1/3 tsp
Chilly powder- 1 tsp
Asafoetida- a pinch
Tamarind- a small ball
salt 
oil for frying.


Soak and take tamarind pulp and combine with one cup of water and one tsp of salt. ( You can also use lemon juice and salt, but tamarind tastes better). Give lengthwise slit on the long chillies. If you like you can remove the seeds gently without breaking off the stem. Immerse them in the tamarind water for two minutes.
Prepare a batter combining all the dry ingredients to form a dosa batter consistency. Dip chillies in the batter ( squeeze out the tamarind water before dipping) and deep fry in oil till all sides are lightly browned up. Enjoy.

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.
