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

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…
