Fish Curry/Spicy Tomato Gravy




Dear friends,
Taking a short break..moving to our new destination, Ohio. Will loose some of your yummy posts.....hope to see you all soon.

Fish curry with a spicy and tangy sauce is a great combo with rice. In this curry I have not used coconut and tamarind which is the important ingredient of Kerala fish curry. But tomatoes gave this curry a unique flavor and taste




Ingredients
Fish- 1/2kg
Tomato puree- 1 cup
Onion- 1 large
Ginger- 2 inch 
Garlic- 2 cloves
Green chilly -2
Chilly powder- 1 tsp
Turmeric powder- 1/2 tsp
Coriander powder- 3/4 tsp
Pepper powder - 1/2 tsp
Fenugreek powder - 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves
coriander leaves
Salt to taste
Lemon juice- 1 tsp
Oil for frying


Marinate fish with half of chilly powder, turmeric powder, salt and lemon juice for ten minutes and fry them for a few seconds. Remove from oil before it gets browned up. This is just to prevent it from breaking while cooking.
Finely chop onions, green chillies, garlic and ginger( or you can use a kitchen chopper or food processor). Saute this along with curry leaves till golden brown in the same pan used for frying the fish. Add tomato puree and let it get cooked for two to three minutes or till the oil separates. Add chilly powder, turmeric, coriander, pepper and fenugreek and saute a another minute. Add one and one half cup of warm water and when it comes to a boil slide in the fried fish pieces and close lid. Cook in medium heat for seven to eight minutes. Finely add coriander leaves and simmer for a few second. Serve warm with rice.


Try this..
Hope you will all enjoy.

    1. Thanks for stopping by,making tomato puree is easy
      To make puree put tomatoes into boiling water. Switch off the flame,cover and let it rest for about fine minutes. Take out and put in cold water. At this stage it is easy to peel skin and blend it using a mixer or you can just make paste by cutting tomatoes and put into food processor and finely grind it till the seeds and skin is incorporated into the puree.The first will give you a smooth gravy.
      hope you will try the recipe,have a great day..

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...

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
Shrimp- 1 lb
onions- 1/2 cup 
Garlic-ginger-green chilly paste- 3 tsp
Tomatoes- 2
Chilly powder 1/2 …

Lemon Chicken

Lemon chicken This is a great chicken recipe infused with Asian flavors and was very similar to the Chinese restaurant style lemon chicken.It is citrus flavored,sweet, tart and crispy chicken .The chicken is first cut into small pieces, dipped in batter and deep fried. The sauce is made separately and drizzled over the chicken.This is perfect with jasmine rice.

Salt a pinch

2)For the batter
Egg- 2

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.


Goan Prawns Pickle

Goan Prawns Pickle
Pickled sea food like prawns and fish is often handy, especially when you are not in a mood for elaborate cooking. I have already posted a prawns pickle recipe shared by my mom. When I read about this spicy Goan prawns pickle, it sounded interesting and I decided to give it a try. It has a very unique taste and flavor,like the Goan Vindaloo and can be stored for over a month.

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…
