Traditional chicken curry cooked in most Andhra homes is very simple. Button onions (sambar onions or shallots) are generally used in cooking non-vegetarian dishes which are better tasting than the normal onions and have a mild sweet flavor. You can use the normal onions too. This chicken recipe is a basic chicken curry. Simple, easy and tasty!
When one talks of Andhra food, the first thing they would say, â€˜Spicyâ€™. Honestly, its not as spicy as its made out to be. But then if they were to eat Gongura Mamsam, I will have to agree that its spicya indeed! An authentic Andhra non-vegetarian meal is incomplete without Gongura Mamsam, an absolutely delectable, mouth-watering dish.
The prawn was pretty small in size but packed with flavor as my friend rightly pointed out. I got down to making an Andhra style prawn fry. I like prawn and can eat as often as possible without getting tried of it. Usually I cook the prawn in a dry saute style or biryani. Tried a slightly different version of prawn fry this time around and am pleased with the end result.
Chicken dish with an Indo-Chinese touch! I made this awesome dish to go with butter naan, ordered from a take away. Found the recipe while flipping through my recipe files, hand written on a paper, barely legible. The recipe caught my attention and I felt an instant desire to try it right away
The only ingredient to be careful is with the use of fresh coconut, which can easily overwhelm the other flavors (if used more than the required quantity). This subtly sweet based chicken curry is quick to prepare, once you have all the ingredients on hand and makes a great curry with chapatis, steamed white rice or biryani. Try it and it sure will enthrall the palates of your family and friends.
Chicken stew with Appam is a popular breakfast fare in Kerala. Simple, aromatic, hearty stew that is sure to win many a heart. Chicken and potato cubes are slowly simmered in a subtly spiced coconut milk base. You can even add vegetables like carrot, beans and peas and increase the nutrition profile of the stew
Drumsticks or Munaga Kaaya are one of my favourite vegetables and I use them liberally in my everyday cooking be it to make a pickle,mixed vegetable curry or with shrimps,or add them to my favorite sambar(lentil based stew),thiyal or avial.I will be writing more about ‘The Moringa Miracle Tree’ for the Weekend
I cannot rave enough about today’s recipe. Outright delicious! Chicken and methi complement each other really well and I’m eternally grateful to the origins of this recipe. The key to this recipe is in the caramalized onions that are pureed along with curd forming the base of this creamy dish. An ideal do-ahead lunch/dinner party fare.
Our brunch this morning was roasted chicken sausages flavored with oregano, sauteed shredded cabbage, boiled egg, cucumber and lightly sauteed apple slices. This breakfast platter is adapted from Nita Mehta’s breakfast cookbook and made for a super quick, flavorful, filling, men-pleasing (my son and husband) meal. For a lunch or dinner version, you can top with some salsa and grated cheese.
