Muringakka Manga Curry/ Drumstick Mango Curry


Muringakka Mango Curry/ Drumstick Mango Curry

Today's recipe is a simple and quick side dish for rice. This is a coconut based tangy curry with the combined flavors of drumsticks and mangoes. My mother makes this curry whenever drumsticks and mangoes are in season.This is a common curry base with local flavors and you can choose between a variety of ingredients and combinations to make it unique.You can add those available like mangoes, jack fruit seeds/chakka kuru, tomatoes, plantain, drumsticks and also make it non- vegetarian by adding prawns fresh or dried (unakka chemmeen).

Ingredients
Drumsticks-3
Green Mango- 1
Shallots- 5-6
Ginger- 1 inch thick
Garlic-2 pods
Cumin seeds- 1/3 tsp
Green chilly- 4
Coconut-1 cup
Turmeric powder- 1/3 tsp
Chilly powder- 1/2 tsp

Mustard seeds- 1/2 tsp
Dry red chilly -2
Curry leaves- 1 spring

Gently peel or scrape off the green part and cut drumstick into three inch pieces. Peel off skin and cut mangoes into cubes. Add one cup of water , green chilly, turmeric powder, chilly powder and salt and cook the drumstick and mangoes till it is done. Make a paste of coconut, shallots, ginger and garlic. Add this to the cooked vegetables and mix in. Adjust consistency by adding a little water. Allow this to simmer in low flame for about two minute. Do not allow this to boil. In a separate pan heat oil and add mustard seeds. When they splutter add curry leaves and dry red chilly and fry. Pour this over the curry and mix. Serve with rice.

Try this..
Hope you will all enjoy

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.

Turmeric powder- 1/3 tsp

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…
