  25. Thanks all for stopping by and for the sweet comments :)

  26. @ Kitchen morph,do try this,you will surely love it.
    I am not sure about celery storage..
    I used celery hearts for this recipe..Foxy's two in a package..I usually store in the same package in the vegetable bin and they remain fresh for about eight to ten days...The package instruction for continued crispness is to rinse and chill..I use the same method and loosely cover with paper towel

    I have tried freezing once,but it was a disaster..it gets watery once thawed. But certain things like chillies,chopped ginger,curry leaves and coriander leaves can be frozen. Will ask my friends and will certainly share with you the methods they use :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. i know...freezing leaves it watery after thawing...don bother to find out. i guess all leaves remain fresh only for max 15 days in the refrigerator.

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…
