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...



Ingredients
1)Chicken - 1 lb
 Chilly powder -1 1/2
Turmeric powder-1/2 tsp
Powdered Garam masala-
(Two tsp of fennel powder, 5-6 cloves,2 inch stick
cinnamon, a small piece of nutmeg, 2 cardamon )
Vinegar- 1 1/2 tsp
Salt to taste

For the Masala
Thinly sliced Onion- 2 medium
Thinly sliced ginger- 3-4 tsp
Thinly sliced garlic- 3-4 tsp
Chopped green chilly- 2
( I used 2 Jalapeno pepper instead of green chilly)
Coriander powder- 3/4 tsp
Chilly powder- 1/2 tsp(optional)
Turmeric powder- a pinch
Meat  Masala- 1 tsp
Curry leaves
Pepper powder- 1/2 tsp
oil



Dry roast the ingredients under garam masala and make a fine powder.Clean and cut chicken and marinate with all the ingredients listed under section one for about an hour. Cook this marinated chicken with half a cup of water till done. Heat oil in a pan and shallow fry the chicken pieces till it is crispy in the outer and set aside. (You can also follow the deep fry method. Fry the marinated chicken in medium flame till crispy)

Heat oil in a pan and saute ginger and garlic till there is a nice aroma followed by onions, green chilly and curry leaves till the onions become golden brown. Add in turmeric powder, coriander powder and pepper powder and garam masala and fry for a minute. Now add the  fried chicken and roast for two to three till it is completely dry and the masala gets well coated over the chicken. Serve with rice, appam or chapati.

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 
Garlic-ginger-green chilly paste- 3 tsp
Tomatoes- 2
Chilly powder 1/2 …

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.
Recipe Source: Wendy Hutton (ed.) The Food of India, 1998. Ingredients Prawns- 1 1/2 pound Oil- 1/2 cup Cumin- 1/2 tsp Pepper powder- 3/4 tsp Turmeric powder- 1/2 tp Onion- 1 medium Garlic- 10- 12 cloves Ginger- 3 one inch peices Cardomon- 4 Chilly dried- 15 Cinnamon powder- 1/2 tsp Vinegar- 3/4 cup

Soak dry red chilly in vinegar for about an hour. Grind all the rest of the ingredients except oil, prawns and turmeric powder into a fine paste. Do not add any water. If you need add more vinegar for grinding. Set this paste aside.
Marinate prawns with turmeric powder and 1/2 tsp salt. Heat oil in …

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.
