Lemon Chicken



Lemon chicken
This is a great chicken recipe infused with Asian flavors and was very similar to the Chinese restaurant style lemon chicken.It is citrus flavored,sweet, tart and crispy chicken .The chicken is first cut into small pieces, dipped in batter and deep fried. The sauce is made separately and drizzled over the chicken.This is perfect with jasmine rice.




Ingredients
1)Chicken boneless- 1 1/2 lb
Soya sauce- 3 tsp
Salt a pinch

2)For the batter
Egg- 2
Corn starch-2 tbs

3)For the sauce
Water - 3/4 cup
( or you can use chicken broth)
Sugar- 3-4 tsp
Salt- 1/2 tsp
Lemon juice- 1 lemon
Lemon zest- 1 tsp
Corn starch- 1 tsp
Yellow color- one drop( optional)

Sesame seeds roasted - 1 tsp
Chopped spring onions - a few

Clean and cut chicken  into small pieces and marinate with soya sauce and pinch of salt and keep aside for ten minutes.
Mix the ingredients under two and make a batter. Heat oil in a pan. Dip the marinated chicken in the batter and deep fry in batches for four to five minutes till it is crispy and golden brown. Drain into paper towels and keep aside.
Mix all ingredients listed under three into a sauce pan and put it in medium flame, stir and allow it to simmer and thicken. Place the chicken in a serving dish and drizzle the sauce all over the chicken. Sprinkle roasted sesame seeds and chopped spring onions. Serve with jasmine rice.

It is a dry version and is great accompaniment with rice, chapathi or fried rice.The chicken in this recipe is usually deep fried or shallow fried, (some times whole stuffed chicken ) and then coated with the masala.

Stuffed Squid

Stuffed Squid
Squid is a unique and yummy sea food delicacy that can be prepared in a variety of ways. Squid rings or fried calamari's is a the most popular and is a great appetizer. Squid is staple in many seafood restaurants. It is also popular street food in several south Asian countries.Squid is enjoyed in the coastal belt of south India especially in Kerala and Tamilnadu.In Kerala squid is known as koonthal or Kanava.

Squid is one of my favorite sea foods-roast squid, deep fried,stir fried or squid curry-I love them all.Squid has a mild flavor and gentle sweetness and marries well to any flavor and taste of your choice. Squid can be stuffed before roasting or frying,its tubular body called mantle is great for stuffing. You can get creative with the stuffing- use prawns,fish,pork, cheese, bread crumbs,olives,rice or anything of your choice.

Today's recipe is a stuffed squid with spicy prawn filling.The dish is inspired by a similar preparation from the book Classic H…

Kerala Fish Curry ( Mulaku Curry)

Kerala's Red Fish Curry or the Mulaku Charu is hot and spicy fish curry. Its rich color is from Kashmiri chilly powder which is less spicy when compared to regular chilly powder.

Fish curry and rice or fish curry and kappa pukku is the absolute comfort food for every malayali. The state is blessed  with long coast line, backwaters and lake and Keralites are great fish eaters. Red fish curry tastes awesome and you can find this type of fish curry everywhere-in  homes, restaurants,toddy shops or boat houses for tourists. Even though this curry is staple for the malayalis, you will still find a lot of regional variation to this recipe. Each region and each home has its own adaption of fish curry.

The tamarind used in this recipe is Kudampuli/ Gambooge/Malabar tamarind. You can find this in abundance in Central and North Kerala. This souring agent has lots of medicinal value and helps aid digestion.
Malayalis love adding coconut to every dish, but this curry is an exception. But it…

Nadan Vaala Meen Curry/BeltFish Curry

Nadan Vaala Meen Curry
This is a nadan style fish curry. It is my grandmothers recipe. When ever she gets vaala meen/ribbon fish/belt fish she makes a similar curry . This is a varutharacha meen curry/roasted coconut gravy. You can also make it without roasting the masala. But the roasting gives a distinct aroma and enhances the taste of the curry. You can add regular tamarind as souring agent or fish tamarind/kudampuli. Try this you will surely love it.

Ingredients Vaala meen- 1 kg
Pearl onion- 2 cup (roughly chopped)

Neipayasam/Sharkara payasam
