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...

It has been a while since I had sea food and so enjoyed Pan fried Pollock with mildly spicy veggie stir fry … Last night, I craved for a sea food dinner. Well, I wasn’t surprised when I couldn’t find any fish in my freezer, so I went fishing shopping despite the blizzard. I met a lot of fishes in the sea food isle that I hadn’t tried yet, among...

Yet another reason for me to buy drumsticks… If you are a regular reader of my blog, you would know by now how much I adore easy breezy recipes. Who wouldn’t ??? Many times I have felt that you don’t have to spend a lot of time in the kitchen nor you need a pile of ingredients to make some tasty food. Just a few ingredients can do real wonders. I...

My favorite part of the chicken has always been the legs… I remember the days growing up how I used to fight with my sister over chicken legs. I still love chicken legs better than the other parts of the chicken. My preferred way of devouring chicken legs has always been when it is fried, especially Kerala style chicken leg fry marinated with aromatic spices...

I swear these are truly an exquisite! It’s high time I introduce my new obsession. I lack words when it comes to describing these drummettes. I would rather prefer finishing up the plate in just one sitting to show you how insanely delicious they are. No Kidding! Besides the taste a couple other things that make me love them even more are that they got the barbecue flavor...
