Spring Chicken Fry.



Eid Mubarak to all!

After a long time we bought spring chicken today. This one weighed about 400-500 gms.


We had a wonderful lunch today with this chicken fry and I thought I will share it with you.

The chicken has to be marinated in curd along with masala for a few hours and fried in oil on low flame. I added 1 tbsp of rice flour to the curd....this gives a crunchiness.

The chicken fry was tender, juicy and crunchy on the outside.


Ingredients:
Spring Chicken: 1, cut into pieces. (about 500 gms).
Curd: 1/3 cup.
Rice Flour: 1 tbsp.
Kashmiri Red Chilly Powder: 2 tbsp (if using spicy red chilly reduce by half and add red color).
Ajwain: A fat pinch.
Garam masala powder: 1/2 tsp.
Pepper Powder: 1/2 tsp.
Turmeric Powder: 1/4 tsp.
Lemon Juice: 1 tbsp.
Ginger Garlic Paste: 1 tsp.
Salt.

Curry leaves.
Oil for frying.

Method:
Lightly whisk the curd with a fork, and add all the spices (masala). Mix the chicken pieces in it and keep aside for 2 hours in refrigerator.

Heat oil in a deep bottomed kadai. Put 3 pieces of chicken, wait for 2 min and then lower the heat. Fry the chicken on low heat till done. Lastly fry a handful of curry leaves and sprinkle on top of the chicken.

Crunchy fried chicken is ready!
Serve hot!

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.
