Mutton Stew




Mutton Stew is a traditional breakfast recipe of Kerala and is a great accompaniment with appam, palappam and idiyappam. It is mutton and potatoes stewed in coconut milk and flavored with whole spices. This light stew may not look very appetizing but its mild flavor and taste is a delight to the palate. I have just used potatoes and mutton, but you can also add in other veggies like carrots. You can also add Vinegar,but it is optional.


Ingredients
Mutton- 1  lb
Potato- 2 small
Onion thinly sliced- 2 medium
Ginger- 1 inch thick
Garlic- 3-4 pods
Green chilly- 7-8
Thick coconut milk- 1 cup
Thin coconut milk- 2 cup
Cinnamon- 1 stick
Clove- 4-5
Cardamon-2
Whole pepper- 8-10
Fennel seeds- 1/2 tsp
nutmeg- a pinch
Mustard seeds- 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves
salt to taste
Ghee- 1 tsp
oil

In a pan or a pressure cooker heat oil and add in whole garam masala ( Cinnamon, Cardamon, clove, pepper and fennel seeds) Once there is a nice aroma add in thinly sliced onions and saute for a few seconds( just sweating the onions)and add in slit green chilly, sliced ginger, garlic and saute till the raw flavor disappears. Add in mutton and potato pieces enough salt and thin coconut milk and close the lid and cook till the mutton is completely cooked. Add the thick coconut milk and nutmeg powder add allow the curry to get warm. Do not heat up too much. In a separate pan add one tsp of ghee and add mustard seeds and when they splutter add curry leaves and fry a bit. Add this on top of the curry and keep lid closed till it is ready to serve. Enjoy with appam.

Hope you will all 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…
