Mustard seeds- 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves- a few
oil
salt to taste

For the spice blend
Channa dal- 2 tsp
Sesame seeds- 1 tsp
Shredded coconut- 2 tsp

Cut eggplant into cubes and marinate with turmeric powder and chilly powder. Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds and when they splutter add hing and curry leaves followed by the egg plant and stir fry. Reduce flame and close lid for a minute. Cook till half done and add salt. Continue to stir fry.

Mean while dry roast the ingredients in the spice blend. First add channa dal and chilly and roast till it changes color.Now add dry shredded coconut and sesame seed and roast for a minute. Make a powder of this.Add this to the eggplant and toss till well coated. Fry for two more minutes till the eggplant pieces gets slight fried . Serve with rice..

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...

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…
