A classic North Indian non veg recipe using mincemeat (lamb) and fresh green peas, Keema Matar, is a popular dish in our home and among friends. It is a much requested dish for pot lucks. Mincemeat (lamb) works best though you could use chicken or beef in its place. I always make the curry with lamb aka keema
The month of Ramzan has inspired me to cook a meat dish with a Nawabi touch. On Sunday, we had a special meal – Coconut rice, Cucumber Raita and Hyderabadi Gosht (Mutton) Korma, a culinary marvel of Hyderabadi cuisine.
Gosht Korma, Coconut Rice and Cucumber Raita ~ Our Sunday mid day meal
Today’s Meatball curry is an classic Anglo Indian food recipe that I learnt from my friend’s mother many years ago.
Vizag has a large Anglo Indian community and their contribution to our educational institutions is significant. Many Anglo Indians teachers taught me during my initial school going years and also have few close friends.
You can hardly call this a recipe since it more of a brunch or lunch idea that I often resort to especially during summers since its simple, quick and easy. Sometimes I use left overs of vegetable stir fries (especially okra or eggplant) as sandwich fillings and today, I wanted to finish the left over mutton kheema and what best way than make a sandwich with minimum preparation work. Absolutely impressive in taste, this simple comfort food certainly made my day.
Chicken Salna also called as Chicken Chalna is the best side dish with South Indian style Parotta and vegetable salna for the vegetarians. You will find most road side stalls located in busy market areas and along the highways in Tamil Nadu serving Parotta with Chicken Salna.
Along with Royallu Vepudu, I also made a quick, easy and flavorful Indo-Chinese style sweet and sour Prawns the other day and used the left overs to prepare Prawn Fried Rice. Fried rice is something that I make on days I am rushed for time. Fried rice being open to endless variations, I just throw together whatever few basic ingredients I have on hand for a quick, fuss-free, one pot meal.
