Custard Crepes


Sweet crepes can be served as a wonderful dessert. This is a simple and delicious crepe batter recipe. I have used flour and custard powder in this recipe with a sweet fruit filling. You can also use custard sauce as a filling which will enhance taste and serves as a tasty dessert.

Ingredients
All purpose flour- 1 cup
Custard powder- 5 tsp
Milk 3/4 cup
hot water 1/2 cup
Eggs- 2
Salt - a pinch
Sugar- 1 tsp
Choice of chopped fruits-  1/2 cup
Maple syrup- 2 tsp
Vanilla essence- a few drops

Combine one tsp of sugar and custard powder with a few tsp of water and make a smooth paste. Add 3/4 cup of hot water and set aside. Allow it to cool.( If you want to make the sauce use the same process but add milk instead)
In a large mixing bowl whisk together the eggs and flour and slowly add milk little by little and finally the custard mix and stir to combine. Scoop batter into a hot greased griddle and spread the batter just like a pan cake or dosa.Cook on both sides. Mix fruit with maple syrup ( or you can use custard sauce) and use as a filling. Enjoy

Kerala Chicken Roast

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

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.
