Stir Fried Brussels Sprouts with Coconut



Stir fried Brussels Sprouts with Coconut

Quick and delicious vegetable side dish with brussels sprouts flavored with coconut and the extra crunch of peanuts.Usually I roast brussels sprouts, but this is another wonderful way to enjoy this veggie. Do not over cook brussels  sprouts. It needs to remain crunchy. If overcooked it lose flavor attains a  sulfurous odour..the reason why most people keep away from the wonderful and versatile vegetable. This is less spicy and a good accompaniment for rice.

Ingredients
Brussels Sprouts- 20
Onion -1 medium
Ginger sliced- 1 inch thick
Garlic-2
Green chilly- 2
Grated coconut- 1/3 cup
Roasted peanuts- 1/3 cup
Cumin- 1/2 tsp
Mustard seeds- 1/2 tsp
Turmeric- 1/3 tsp
Hing- a pinch
Dry red chilly-1

Peel off and discard the loose leaves of the sprouts, wash and cut into half's and keep aside.  Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds and cumin seeds. When the splutter add dry red chilly,garlic and ginger and slightly fry. Add hing followed by onions and green chilly and saute till onions slightly change color. Add turmeric,salt and the brussels sprouts and stir fry. Reduce flames cover and cook covered  for a minute. Remove lid and add shredded coconut and continue to stir fry in medium flame for another two to three minutes. Add roasted peanuts and stir fry in medium high for one more minute. Serve with rice.

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.
