Beans Cheruparippu Thoran


Beans Cheruparippu Thoran/Beans and Moong Dal Thoran

This is a delicious and healthy side dish for rice. It is stir fried beans with cheruparippu/moong dal and coconut.

Ingredients
Beans chopped- 2 1/2 cup
Cheruparippu/Moong dal cooked- 1 cup

Cook chopped beans and moong dal/cheruparippu separately.
Note; You can dry roast the moong dal till it is slightly golden and gets a nice aroma. This will enhance flavor and also keep it separated. Cook around 1/3 cup of cheruparippu with 1- 1 1/3 cup of water and a pinch of salt and keep aside.Use a wide mouth pot .Cook it till it is soft and still retains its shape and the dal remains separated from each other. Do not pressure cook itor it will get mashed up.

Cook beans along with salt and green chilly and sprinkle some water. Cook covered  in medium flame and saute occasionally. If you feel necessary sprinkle little more water. Allow the beans to get soft and cooked.

In a mixer make a course mixture of coconut, cumin seeds, turmeric, chilly powder and garli.

Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds and when they splutter add curry leaves and chopped onion. Saute till onion changes color. Add the coconut mixture and saute for a minute followed by cooked beans and cooked moong dal. Check for salt and stir fry for two more minutes. Thoran is ready.Serve with rice.

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…
