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.

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…

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…
