Thai Fried Bananas-Crispy Deep Fried Banana Fritters

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. I love experimenting with chicken and one of my cousins shared this beautiful recipe last week. This delectable chicken fry is from Kodugu or Coorg. Coorg is a picturesque hill station and a dream destination. I had already tried the Coorg pepper pork. It had a unique taste and got me intrigued by this beautiful cuisine. I wanted to try this recipe and glad I tried.

The star ingredient in this recipe is kachampuli or Coorg vinegar. Kachampuli is a fruit-based vinegar. It is extracted from ripe fruits of garcinia gummi guttu, a sightly fermented dark syrup. This seems to be one predominant flavor in most Coorg recipe-the sourness from kachampuli. Coorg pepper pork, that I tried earlier also had kachampuli.I have grown up eating curries with kudampuli and the taste is so relatable.

This chicken fry is beautifully balanced with the right combination of earthy spices and surprise sourness …

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…
