Kuttanadan duck roast




This is my 50th post wow!!! I am proud of myself and what better way to celebrate it. I take this moment to thank each and every one who has visited my virtual space. 

Its been a while since I posted something as I was down with severe sinus infection and sore throat and in between achachen (my dad) gave a surprise visit. This recipe is from ammas elder sister, Lata whom I fondly call Renjumummy). I made exactly as she told me to and it was a huge hit with achachen and Homey. Luckily I was able to get a pic of it. Personally I don’t prefer duck but that did not alter me from trying out this one.

Ingredients:

Duck: ½ kg cleaned.
Onion: 2.(or shallots about ¼ cup).
Ginger garlic paste: 1 ½ tbsp.
Green chilies: 2 or 3.
Coriander powder: 3 tsp.
Turmeric powder: ¼ tsp.
Chilly powder: 2 tsp.
Pepper powder: 1 tsp.
Garam masala: 1 tsp.
Vinegar: 1 tbsp.
Curry leaves.
Method:
Preferably coconut oil.

                                                                                       ( masala after frying it on low flame)

Method:
Heat oil in a kadai and fry the sliced onion lightly and then add the chilies and ginger garlic paste and fry till light brown. Add the masalas and fry on low flame till it becomes very dark (almost a coffee colour). Add the vinegar and salt and the duck. Pour little water and cover it and cook it. Heat some oil in a non stick pan and sauté the cooked duck pieces (pick up the pieces from the gravy) add curry leaves and sprinkle some more pepper powder and garam masala (about ½ tsp each) and pour all this back into the gravy and mix well and fry for another 2 to 3 min. Serve hot…….YUM!

Note: This is a dry dish, but if you want can add little hot water to make it little gravy like.

Recipe source: Lata Simon.

Puff Pastry Recipe - Homemade Puff Pastry

Puff pastry recipe: Homemade puff pastry in 15 minutes, can you believe that??  Bakery style Puff pastry is so easy to make at home that you will never buy greasy bakery puffs. The best thing about this puff pastry recipe is that; it does not need any refrigeration (chilling the dough) or any other so called difficult method, you may see when you google for "puff pastry"

Easy puff pastry can be made with the most basic ingredients and in under 15 minutes.

Back in the 80's amma started making puffs at home; which my two brothers and myself used to enjoy a lot. She mostly used to make this for special occasions; like when a friend dropped in or when we long for something bakery style.

Fast-forward to 2014; my daughter, Nidhi loves puffs and I have been asking amma to teach me how to make and somehow things did not work out when I last visited her. Right now she is visiting us here in Calicut and I coaxed and buttered her to show me how to make puffs.

The first time she tau…

Caramel Pudding Recipe - Caramel Custard Recipe

Caramel pudding recipe; a delicious traditional dessert with creamy caramel over silky custard. Caramel custard is my favorite pudding.

All through my childhood, amma makes caramel pudding as a Sunday special.....achachen (my dad) love only this pudding...... 42 years of serving caramel pudding to him has made amma, a sort of an authority on caramel pudding recipe! Ah yes, like always this is amma's recipe. It is her signature, no-fail recipe. of caramel custard.



Okay lets talk about this pudding!!  I used 4 eggs because amma said so eggs are the show stopper here :)......it is needed to make the pudding silky-satin, and stand tall....and yes it will not crumble.....now you may wonder....won't this be eggy!!smelly!! I promise it won't....there wouldn't be too much eggy flavor! caramel flavor can do wonders!! Believe me!!



I am using my steamer or appachembu as it is known locally to cook the pudding. While the pudding is steaming, it is important that once steam comes, …

Vattayappam / Steamed Rice Cake / Kerala Style

Vattayappam is Kerala's own fermented SteamedRice Cake. One of the healthiest traditional tea time snack with almost no oil. It is popular in the Christian communities of Kerala, though not much popular in North Kerala/ Malabar.

 "Vatta" means "round" ......vattayappam is basically rice and coconut grinded together and fermented with yeast....it is very soft and pillowy.....a slightly sweet snack......these days, it has found its place in bakeries especially in Kochi and Kottayam...and when I got a request from an anonymous reader asking for vattayappam recipe...I thought of sharing the recipe...as it is very easy to make...and does not take much time to make. I usually make it as an after school snack as it is very healthy and filling for kids.
