Mambazha Pulissery/Mango and Spiced Yogurt Curry

Pulisheri is the most common yogurt based dish in Kerala served with rice. Pulisheri is made  both with vegetables and  fruits . This dish is made with mangoes and is a flavorful dish,light and tasty. The sourness of yogurt is balanced by the sweetness of mangoes.

Yogurt- 2 cup
Grated coconut- 1/2 cup
Green chilly-2
Turmeric powder-1/2 tsp

Fenugreek powder- 1/2 tsp
Mustard seeds-  1/2 tsp
Fenugreek seeds -a few
Chopped shallot- 1
Whole red chilly-1
Curry leaves-2 springs



Peel and cut mangoes into large chunks( if smaller you can just add whole mangoes).

In a sauce pan put mangoes, chilly powder, turmeric,salt and one cup of water. Cover and cook till mangoes are cooked and it becomes a little creamy and thick.

Grind coconut and green chilly into a fine paste using little water and add to the mango mixture,stir and cook in medium flame till it is slightly bubbly in the edges. Blend fenugreek powder and yogurt and add in and simmer for one more minute in low flame.

Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds and fenugreek seeds. When mustard splutters add shallots, red chilly and curry leaves and fry. Add this to the curry and mix. Serve with rice.

  3. This looks absolutely mouthwatering. I've never tried this dish myself. When my parents went to India for a visit last month one of our neighbors invited them for lunch and the aunty there made this dish. Dad fell in love with it (he's not a big mango fan). Thanks to you, I can probably borrow this recipe from you and try to recreate the dish for Dad... Good job!!! :)

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

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...

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.


Chicken Fry- Kodavu style (Coorg)

Chicken fry Kodavu style (Coorg)
 Kodavu Chicken  Fry is very yummy and easy to make chicken recipe. It is basically a dry preparation.I love experimenting with chicken and one of my cousins  shared this beautiful recipe last week. Star ingredient in this recipe is kachampuli or Coorg vinegar. This seems to be one predominant flavor in most Coorg recipe-the sourness from kachampuli. I have earlier posted a Coorg recipe with pork and it also has kachampuli.This chicken fry is unique with right combination of earthy spices and surprise sourness,but it is an extremely delectable chicken fry. You can also use dried kodampuli for this recipe.Serve with rice or chapathi.

Recipe courtesy: My cousin Siddharth 

Ingredients
Chicken - 1 lb
Turmeric powder- 1/3 tsp
Chilly powder- 1 tsp
Oil- 3-4 tbs

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…
