Bread Cups with Tangy Spicy Corn



Bread Cups with Tangy Spicy Corn

Bread cups is a quick snack or appetizer. This is a fun filled recipe and kids will love this. You can be creative and use any kind of filling-vegetables, spinach,egg, meat or tuna stuffing. I usually make this with less spicy meat filling for my kids lunch box.Here I used a tangy and spicy corn and it is baked in a muffin tin.
The crust is bread dough, but for a quicker version you can cut bread slices into rounds and press down into muffin tins to make the cups.
Ingredients
For the bread

Flour - 2 cup
Yeast - 1 1/2 tsp
Warm water- 3/4 cup
Salt - 1/2 tsp
Sugar- 1 tsp
oil - 2 tsp
melted butter- 2 tsp

For the filling
Frozen Corn kernels- 1 cup
Chopped onion- 1/2 onion
Chopped tomato-1 medium
Garlic- 2 clove
Egg yolk-1
Pepper and salt as per taste
Butter- 1 tsp
Parmesan cheese- 2 tbs
Chopped coriander or parsley




For the bread mix in sugar and warm water and add yeast and set aside for 5-6 minutes till it is frothy. Mix together flour and salt,yeast, oil and butter to knead to form a smooth soft dough. Cover with damp cloth and let it rest to raise for one hour or till it doubles its size.

To make the filling: Heat a pan and add butter followed by chopped garlic and onions.Saute for a minute till the onion slightly changes color. Add tomatoes and saute till  it gets soft. Toss in corn,pepper and salt and mix well and if there is liquid allow it to dry. Remove into a bowl and allow to cool. When it is time for the filling add parmesan cheese, one beaten egg yolk,chopped coriander leaves and mix.

When the dough is ready press down to release the air and smoothen it. Using a rolling pin flatten it into a square. Cut equal 4 1/2 inch  circles.  Grease muffin tin with butter and place each circle and press this one the bottom and up the sides of each muffin cup. Place spoonfuls of filling and  bake in 375 degree f  for about 20 minutes. Allow this to cool for a few minutes. Slightly run a knife along the edges and slowly lift out of the muffin tin.

Try this
Hope you will all enjoy!

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…
