I love to eat hot dog this way, quite weird, huh? I’ve tried many times to eat hot dogs in the traditional way: after grilling or just microwaving it and placed in a bun topped with mustard/ketchup etc, but in vain I couldn’t just devour it. Hence I had to find a different way to make myself like hot dogs. Now, this is how I eat hot dogs, after mixing...

Fish curry and Tapioca, without any doubt a true delicacy of Kerala cuisine… Since my last post was kerala style fish curry, this post gotta be Kappa Puzhukku or Tapioca in ground coconut. For the first time, I wasn’t perplexed about what to post next. One of the authentic Kerala dishes has been Kappa and Meen curry (Tapioca or yuca root and fish curry),...

Finally I made mani puttu, and I stuffed it with tuna roast… I’ve already blogged about Puttu, Kerala’s famous breakfast dish. Well, if you travel down south in Kerala to Malabar, you will come across mani puttu being served there. Mani puttu is often served in my dad’s family for breakfast or dinner, especially at my aunt’s house (dad’s...

Finally, my quest for restaurant style stir fried noodles came to an end… I swear, this is the best stir fried noodles that I made in my kitchen. Whenever I eat noodles from any Asian restaurants I always wished if I could make such tasting noodles at home. And I kept wishing for many years. A few weeks ago I had curry chicken and vegetable noodles for lunch...

Delicious beef stew in rich coconut gravy, it’s finger linking good… While thinking about Easter dishes, I saw Appam and Beef Stew lined in front of me. In Kerala, these are the two main dishes served for breakfast on Easter day. Appam has been the top favorite breakfast dish of almost all Keralites. Those who have had stew might know that it tastes delicious...

When scallops got a restaurant style makeover… If I see scallops on the menu while dining in any restaurant, I would literally ignore all the other dishes. I love scallops and adore the tender and rich meat it has. I have had scallops many times at many restaurants, since then I’ve been wanting to cook scallops in my kitchen. Last weekend, I bought fresh...

I get mesmerized by the aroma and flavor of this dish… I love anything that is deep fried in oil, but I don’t dare to make it and to have it all the time. So, to get the fried taste without adding much oil, I stir fry the meat till it turns brown in little oil. Especially with beef I do this. This time, I first cooked the beef with all the spices, then...

No Kidding! I love King fish biryani more than chicken or mutton biryani… First, let’s talk a bit about King fish as it is quite unheard of in North America. King fish is a sea fish that is found in the Indian ocean and is very popular in Southern India. I personally think it is the most tastiest fish. It is an expensive fish and is often served in many...

If you’ve had a whirlwind of a day, a meal like this will cheer you up… Before I start raving about the recipe, let me first rave about the World cup cricket final. Today was the 2011 World cup cricket final, between India and Srilanka. It was an exciting match which made me sit on the edge of the couch each and every moment, oh wait I couldn’t even...

A fancy way of making Collard Green… As the weekend comes to an end I feel sheer pain. I always wish if I could freeze the weekend and enjoy it till I get bored of it. However, as the week rolls in I slowly gear up and soon will be seen relishing every bit of it. Last weekend was quite a rewarding one for me. I had spent a lot of time in my kitchen trying different...
