Custard Crepes

Sweet crepes can be served as a wonderful dessert. This is a simple and delicious crepe batter recipe. I have used flour and custard powder in this recipe with a sweet fruit filling. You can also use custard sauce as a filling which will enhance taste and serves as a tasty dessert.

All purpose flour- 1 cup
Custard powder- 5 tsp
Milk 3/4 cup
hot water 1/2 cup
Eggs- 2
Salt - a pinch
Sugar- 1 tsp
Choice of chopped fruits-  1/2 cup
Maple syrup- 2 tsp
Vanilla essence- a few drops

Combine one tsp of sugar and custard powder with a few tsp of water and make a smooth paste. Add 3/4 cup of hot water and set aside. Allow it to cool.( If you want to make the sauce use the same process but add milk instead)
In a large mixing bowl whisk together the eggs and flour and slowly add milk little by little and finally the custard mix and stir to combine. Scoop batter into a hot greased griddle and spread the batter just like a pan cake or dosa.Cook on both sides. Mix fruit with maple syrup ( or you can use custard sauce) and use as a filling. Enjoy

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…
