Fish Chilly Roast


Fish chilly roast is a semi dry preparation with the flavor of chilly peppers. Here I have used Jalapeno peppers  which is a moderate heat chilly.It has a mild flavor like bell pepper and if you remove off the seeds which causes the heat it infuses a very good aroma to your dish.You can use any chilly according to your taste or skip that altogether. This can be served as a side dish for rice, pulao or as an appetizer.It is similar to the Kerala style chicken roast.If you are tried with the usual fish curry why not give this recipe a try.



Ingredients
Boneless fish- 1 lb
(I used King fish)
Thinly sliced onions- 1 medium
Jalapeno peppers - 3
Ginger- 1 inch thick
Garlic- 6 pods
Tomato - 2 small
Chilly powder- 3/4 tsp
Turmeric powder- 1/3 tsp
Fenugreek powder-a pinch
Garam Masala - 3/4 tsp
Vinegar- 1 tsp
curry leaves
salt to taste




Cut fish into medium sized cubes and marinate with salt,turmeric, chilly powder and keep aside.
Make  a paste of ginger and garlic and puree tomatoes. Heat oil in a pan and add curry leaves and sliced onions and saute till golden brown. Add in ginger garlic paste and after a minute the tomato puree. Saute till the tomatoes are cooked and oil separates. Add garam masala,fenugreek powder and vinegar and finally the fish( You can also slightly fry the fish before adding) and pour 1/3 cup of water. Cover and cook till the fish is almost done. Add the chopped peppers and gently stir and roast till all the water gets evaporated and the onion masala gets coated on the fish. Serve with rice or pulao.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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…
