Fish Fried Rice


This is a delicious and easy  fried rice made with fish. It is a healthy and quick lunch box fix. This is inspired by a Thai fish rice which I read in a magazine. The original recipe makes use of salted fish and chicken to make fried rice. But here I have used only fish (unsalted).The first time I tried this recipe I used stir fry method to cook fish and the result was somewhat scrambled fish. So to avoid it I  marinated the fish and fried it before combining with rice. You can also add carrots, cabbage,bok choy or any veggies of your choice.

Ingredients
Fish Boneless- 3/4 lb
(I used King Fish)
Cooked Rice- 3 cups
Onion - 1 medium
Spring onions - a little
Capsicum - 1 cup
Celery- 1/2 cup
Soya sauce- 2 tsp
Fish sauce- a few drops(optional)
Chilly sauce- 1 tsp
Oyster sauce- 1/2 tsp ( optional)
Carrot- 1 small
Ginger- 1inch thick
Garlic- 3-4 
pepper powder- 1/2  tsp
corn starch- 1 tsp
oil


Cut fish into small pieces. Marinate it for 10 minutes with soya sauce and half tsp of pepper powder.Just before frying add in corn starch and toss and fry fish till done. Keep this aside. 
In the same oil add garlic and ginger and fry for a minute.Next add onion and continue stir fry followed by chopped celery, spring onion,capsicum and carrots. When the vegetables are almost done add in all the sauces and fried fish and stir fry for a few seconds. Now add cooked rice and stir and mix well. Fish fried rice is ready.

Try this..
Hope you will all enjoy..

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.

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…
