Fried Cake


Fried cake  is deep fried sweet dough and has a crispy outer and a soft bread like texture in the inside. sprinkle powdered sugar or cinnamon sugar while it is still warm. This is a perfect tea time snack.

Ingredients
All Purpose Flour- 2 cups
Egg-2
( I used three egg whites)
Dry active yeast - 1 tsp
Sugar- 1/2 cup
Butter- 2 tsp
Cardamon-   6-7
Nutmeg -1/4 tsp
salt- a pinch
thick coconut milk 1/4 cup( optional you may also use water)
oil for frying

Combine well all the dry ingredients flour,salt,cardamon and nutmeg and dry active yeast
Beat egg yolk and white separately. Make sure the white are light and fluffy. Add sugar and beat well. Mix in the flour little by little to form a thick dough just like you do for chapati. Mix coconut milk---spoon in little by little only if  you feel that the dough needs a little more moister. Set this aside for at least  two hours. Roll the dough log shapes and tie it into a knot, or flatten and cut into desired shapes.Deep fry in hot oil. It will double its size.Flip and fry till both sides are golden brown. You can sprinkle with sugar if you like while hot.

Try this..
Hope you will all enjoy..

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

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...

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.


Chicken Fry- Kodavu style (Coorg)

Chicken fry Kodavu style (Coorg)
 Kodavu Chicken  Fry is very yummy and easy to make chicken recipe. It is basically a dry preparation.I love experimenting with chicken and one of my cousins  shared this beautiful recipe last week. Star ingredient in this recipe is kachampuli or Coorg vinegar. This seems to be one predominant flavor in most Coorg recipe-the sourness from kachampuli. I have earlier posted a Coorg recipe with pork and it also has kachampuli.This chicken fry is unique with right combination of earthy spices and surprise sourness,but it is an extremely delectable chicken fry. You can also use dried kodampuli for this recipe.Serve with rice or chapathi.

Recipe courtesy: My cousin Siddharth 

Ingredients
Chicken - 1 lb
Turmeric powder- 1/3 tsp
Chilly powder- 1 tsp

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…
