Stuffed Mushrooms


Stuffed Mushrooms

Stuffed mushrooms is a quick appetizer or snack. It is a perfect addition to an appetizer tray for a get together. I have used a very simple stuffing but there are endless options both vegetarian and non vegetarian that can be used for the filling.

Ingredients
Mushrooms- 12 medium sized
Cream cheese- 2 tbs
Grated  cheese- 1/3 cup
I used both Parmesan and mozzarella cheese) 
Italian style bread crumbs- 1/3 cup
Shallot finely chopped- 2
garlic- 2 cloves
Pepper powder-a pinch
Cajun spice mix- a dash (optional)
Chopped parsley/coriander- 2 tbs
salt to taste
Extra virgin olive oil

Preheat oven to 375 degree F.
Hold mushrooms under running water and using a damp cloth gently scrub the  top and snap out the stem (do not discard,chop finely and add to the filling) and using a spoon gently scrap and make it a perfect cavity for the filling.
Heat one tsp of oil and saute garlic, shallot and mushroom stems till it is soft.
In a bowl mix well cream cheese, cheese,bread crumbs, coriander and parsley leaves,pepper, salt and the saute mushroom stems along with the seasoning. Drizzle a few drops of olive oil and mix till well combined.
Grease baking sheet with olive oil. Take spoon full of mixture and fill into the mushroom cavities. Arrange on the baking sheet,with the filling facing upwards and drizzle a few drops of olive oil on each mushroom. Bake till you attain the golden crust for about 20 minutes. Serve warm

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.

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

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.
