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...

It’s hard to stop munching these crunchy fritters… This is the first time I made fritters out of okra. Fried okra in yogurt (Pachadi, a kerala side dish) is one of my favorite side dishes. Other than this I often make stir fries using okra. I don’t like to buy frozen okras, I need the okra to be fresh and crisp. Fresh okras are always available in...

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...

  It looks and feels like a lace with an incredibly soft texture… Palaada or Rice crepe is very famous in Kerala cuisine. It is prepared often in my parent’s house and a must served dish during special occasions. Not just adults, even the kids love it, as it has a really soft texture. When the adults enjoy palaada along with chicken or mutton curry,...

The best pudding I’ve had in a while… Is there any way to trap our finest moods and tune into that whenever we feel low or frustrated? If so my life would have been much better. I am amazed how our mood and feelings change each day. Yesterday didn’t turn out to be a great day for me, even after trying hard to make it look great. And my frustration...

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...

Have pickle and enjoy the kick… Pickles have been a staple delicacy for many centuries and each cuisine has its own speciality pickles. Pickling is a process of preserving food in salt water, some times vinegar and oil are also added. The concept of pickling started many centuries ago, obviously to preserve food to consume during off seasons and was eaten a...

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...

Crunchy outside, yummy inside, resembles to bird’s nest, makes a perfect appetizer; What more do you need??? After tasting Tuna cutlets, I seldom make chicken cutlets as tuna cutlets taste much better than chicken or any other meat. If you haven’t tried with tuna, I highly recommend you guys to give it a shot and you’ll be glad that you tried it....

A vegetarian delicacy that made me forget that I am actually eating vegetables… Last night while looking at my Dinner365.com website and the dinner pictures that I had posted so far made me realize that I haven’t cooked many veggie dishes. I do include veggies in my diet but it would always be accompanied by some non-veg dishes. So, for tonight’s...
