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.

Kerala Fish Curry ( Mulaku Curry)

Kerala's Red Fish Curry or the Mulaku Charu is hot and spicy fish curry. Its rich color is from Kashmiri chilly powder which is less spicy when compared to regular chilly powder.

Fish curry and rice or fish curry and kappa pukku is the absolute comfort food for every malayali. The state is blessed  with long coast line, backwaters and lake and Keralites are great fish eaters. Red fish curry tastes awesome and you can find this type of fish curry everywhere-in  homes, restaurants,toddy shops or boat houses for tourists. Even though this curry is staple for the malayalis, you will still find a lot of regional variation to this recipe. Each region and each home has its own adaption of fish curry.

The tamarind used in this recipe is Kudampuli/ Gambooge/Malabar tamarind. You can find this in abundance in Central and North Kerala. This souring agent has lots of medicinal value and helps aid digestion.
Malayalis love adding coconut to every dish, but this curry is an exception. But it…

Stuffed Squid

Stuffed Squid
Squid is a unique and yummy sea food delicacy that can be prepared in a variety of ways. Squid rings or fried calamari's is a the most popular and is a great appetizer. Squid is staple in many seafood restaurants. It is also popular street food in several south Asian countries.Squid is enjoyed in the coastal belt of south India especially in Kerala and Tamilnadu.In Kerala squid is known as koonthal or Kanava.

Squid is one of my favorite sea foods-roast squid, deep fried,stir fried or squid curry-I love them all.Squid has a mild flavor and gentle sweetness and marries well to any flavor and taste of your choice. Squid can be stuffed before roasting or frying,its tubular body called mantle is great for stuffing. You can get creative with the stuffing- use prawns,fish,pork, cheese, bread crumbs,olives,rice or anything of your choice.

Today's recipe is a stuffed squid with spicy prawn filling.The dish is inspired by a similar preparation from the book Classic H…
