Tangy Spring Onion Rice


Tangy Spring Onion Rice

This is a pretty simple dish to make and believe me its bursting with flavor.This is a very versatile recipe and comes handy if you are short of time. You can alter this recipe in which ever way you like..add some garam masala and get an Indian flavor to this rice or you can add some Italian spices or herbs to give another unique flavor. Here I have used soya sauce and pickled chilly. Pickled chilly has vinegar and garlic in it. If you do not have it you can use chilly sauce instead.Give this recipe a try, you will surely love it.


Ingredients

Jasmine Rice ( cooked)- 2 cups
Spring onion- One bunch
Garlic clove- 3
Celery chopped- 3 tbs
Soya sauce- 1 tsp
Chicken bouillon powder- 1/3 tsp ( optional)
Pickled ground red chilly- 1 1/3 tsp
( or chilly garlic sauce one tsp)
Lemon juice- 1 tsp

Chop spring onions and keep the white part and green part separately.Heat oil in a pan and add garlic cloves and stir fry for a few seconds. Now add the white part of the spring onion and celery and stir fry for a minute. Add the cooked rice and saute in high for another minute.Mix in soya sauce, pickle chilly and chicken bullion and finally the green part of the spring onion and lemon juice and saute for a few more seconds.

Serve this with any vegetarian side dish or with a spicy non- vegetarian dish. Here I served the spring onion rice topped with roasted chicken

Hope you will all enjoy..

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...

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.
