Tomato Garlic Chicken



Tomato Garlic Chicken

Tomato Garlic chicken is a quick semi dry chicken recipe. It is tomato based chicken stir fry along with garlic and spicy chilly.I used Chinese chilly garlic sauce (Lee Kum Kee brand) to give it a bit of heat. If you do not like to add sauce you can make a  home made version equivalent to it y grinding chiles, garlic and vinegar. You can have this as a side dish for rice or fried rice.

Ingredients

Chicken - 1 lb
Tomato-3 medium
( finely minced or make a puree)
Shallots crushed or finely minced- 1/2 cup
Ginger garlic paste- 1 tsp
Chilly garlic sauce- 1 1/2 tsp  (I used Lee Kum Kee brand)
(If you like more spicy use Tuong ot toi Vietnam)
Tomato paste- 1 tsp
Soya sauce- 1 tsp
pepper powder-1/3 tsp
Turmeric powder- a pinch
Ground cinnamon and cloves- 1/3 tsp
Chopped coriander leaves
Chopped spring onions for garnish




Clean and cut chicken into small bite sized pieces. Marinate with a pinch of salt, 1/3 tsp of pepper and a pinch of turmeric powder for about 15 minutes.(If you are using home made paste mix,make a paste with ground chiles, garlic,salt and vinegar. Mix with the chicken and allow to marinate).

Heat oil in a pan and add crushed shallots and saute for till golden brown. Add ginger garlic paste and after a minute add the finely chopped tomatoes. Stir and allow the tomatoes to cook and get dry.
Next add the marinated chicken and fry for about a minute. Cover and cook for another 3-4 minutes.It will cook in its own water. Add chilly garlic paste,tomato paste and soya sauce and allow the gravy to reduce to the consistency you like. Finely add ground cinnamon and clove and chopped coriander leaves and mix.Garnish with spring onions.

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…

You can add regular tamarind as souring agent or fish tamarind/kudampuli. Try this you will surely love it.
