Chicken 65 is a popular dish in South India, mostly served as an appetizer/entrée. Bone in or boneless chicken chunks are marinated in a flavorful and spicy marinade and deep fried. Of course, anything fried HAS to be tasty!! Period! In most cases, red food color is added to the marinade, which gives this dish an even more appetizing look. Today, I’m happy to share with you this rather healthier, baked version chicken 65! Continue reading →
Summer is at its peak in my part of the world! All I want to have is some light, non-greasy meals that are delicious too. I’m not really a salad person, but do have some occasionally. I’m more of the rice-curry person, I admit I can’t do without rice, it’s what I have grown up eating. I love salads that are not only dressed up with flavorful vinaigrette’s, but they have to look appetizing to me as well, to make me want to have some! Like this healthymung sprouts & sweet yellow corn salad, super flavorful and as pretty as a picture.
Stuffed squids aka calamari are a classic and popular Goan appetizer! You will find it on the menu of most Goan beach shacks. It is stuffed with a mix of sauteed onions and chopped tentacles cooked in the fiery and tangy Goan recheado masala paste.
Sharing a very easy and basic recipe today – Goan Drumstick bhaji ( Sautéed drumsticks). In this dish, drumstick veggie is cooked in a base consisting of sautéed onions-tomatoes, seasoned with turmeric and green chilli for spice and some freshly grated coconut for the sweet nuttiness. Few ingredients are used here, but there is absolutely no compromise on taste. The coconut adds a wonderful sweetness and texture to this simple dish. I love using coconut oil in dishes that also call for freshly grated coconut. It definitely takes the dish a notch up! Continue reading →
Frankies are basically wraps, and a popular Indian street food. This Aloo cheese Frankie is quite popular and the most common one amongst its vegetarian counterparts. I would occasionally indulge on these after my work hours. There was a Frankie stall right outside the railway station serving up both veg and non-veg frankies. At the sight of the piping hot frankies, prepared right in front of you, one couldn’t help but drool until that Frankie made it’s way from the skillet to your plate . Satisfaction for your hunger and taste buds! Yum!
