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.

For Rice
Basmati Rice- 1 1/2 cups
Water- 3 cups
Cinnamon- 1 stick
cloves - 2
Salt to taste
Oil- 1 tsp

Goan Prawns Pickle

Goan Prawns Pickle
Pickled sea food like prawns and fish is often handy, especially when you are not in a mood for elaborate cooking. I have already posted a prawns pickle recipe shared by my mom. When I read about this spicy Goan prawns pickle, it sounded interesting and I decided to give it a try. It has a very unique taste and flavor,like the Goan Vindaloo and can be stored for over a month.
Recipe Source: Wendy Hutton (ed.) The Food of India, 1998. Ingredients Prawns- 1 1/2 pound Oil- 1/2 cup Cumin- 1/2 tsp Pepper powder- 3/4 tsp Turmeric powder- 1/2 tp Onion- 1 medium Garlic- 10- 12 cloves Ginger- 3 one inch peices Cardomon- 4 Chilly dried- 15 Cinnamon powder- 1/2 tsp Vinegar- 3/4 cup

Soak dry red chilly in vinegar for about an hour. Grind all the rest of the ingredients except oil, prawns and turmeric powder into a fine paste. Do not add any water. If you need add more vinegar for grinding. Set this paste aside.

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 Cutlet

Chicken Cutlet
Spicy cutlet with piping hot tea..can you ever say no to this delicious tea time snack? It is great time saver and the  best part is that you can make the patties  and store in the freezer( without frying) for more than two weeks.The flavor of freshly ground pepper, coriander leaves and a bit  tangy from lemon juice is something I really love in this Kerala style cutlets. This recipe will make around twelve cutlets. Give this recipe a try..
