Chilly powder- 1/2 tsp
Hing- a pinch
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
Red chilly- 3


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..

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…

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…
