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.

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. Here I have shallow fried the chicken.It  tasted delicious with fried rice. Give this recipe a try...

Meat Ball Curry/Kofta Curry

Meat Ball Curry/Kofta Curry
Today's recipe is a delicious meat ball/ kofta curry which goes well with rice, pulao or naan. If you want to try something different for dinner try this kofta curry. This is a great dish to serve when you have friends over for dinner. Kofta curry is definitely worth a try-juicy and tender meat balls are cooked in a  rich tangy mildly spiced tomato based gravy enriched with aromatic spices.

The first time I tried the kofta curry was in Delhi and it was creamy  rich curry with lots of fresh cream and the meat balls were cooked over charcoal for a smoky flavor. So if you want that authentic flavor try barbecuing the meatballs before adding to the gravy. I wanted to try my own version of kofta curry and added cashew nut paste instead of cream and my family enjoyed for dinner with vegetable pulao and naan .For a richer, creamier texture you can also add cream. You can use minced mutton of beef or even try a vegetarian version of this curry with mashed pota…

 Mixture is a crispy and crunchy snack popular in India.  It is a snack mix or a blend of crispy fries, nuts,chips,fried lentils and  tossed with a spice powder.This is a common snack eaten anytime and at all times.

Because of her I also became a great fan of spicy mixture.I had never thought that one day I'll make this at home. My mom will be so proud of me when she will see this post :).
