Meen Manga Curry/ Fish Raw Mango Curry



Meen manga curry

This is a traditional fish curry of Kerala which is spicy, sour and flavorful and raw mango is used as flavoring and souring agent instead of tamarind or kudampuli. This is is common curry back home especially when mangoes are in season and for the rest of the year sun dried mangoes( Ada Manga) are used to make this curry. King fish,mackerel,sardines, prawns all taste delicious with mangoes. This curry is a quick version.You can grind shredded coconut into a fine paste and use in this recipe which gives a thick creamy gravy or just use thick coconut milk

Ingredients
Fish - 1 1/2 lb
( I used king fish)
Mangoes diced- 2 small
Shallots- 8-10
Ginger- 2 inch thick
Green chilly-2
Turmeric powder- 1/2 tsp
Chilly powder- 1 1/2 tsp
Fenugreek powder- 1/3 tsp
Thick coconut milk- 3/4 cup
 Thin coconut milk- 1 cup
( If using shredded coconut 3/4 cup)
Mustard seeds- 1/2 tsp
Dry red chilly-1
Curry leaves
Coconut oil

Clean and cut fish and keep aside.
Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds. When they splutter add red chilly and curry leaves followed by shallots and ginger. Saute till onions have changed color and ginger has nice aroma. Add turmeric powder, chilly powder and saute for a few seconds and add mango pieces and slit green chilly. Add thin coconut milk and allow this to come to a boil. Add in fish pieces, cover and cook in medium flame till fish is cooked. Now add fenugreek powder and thick coconut milk and allow to simmer.Finally add a  few fresh curry leaves and a few drops of coconut oil on top.

Try this..
Hope you will all enjoy.

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

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.
