I saw this recipe on Reddit and it struck a note. The end result came out expected but is certainly was a lot different from our experience of fried chicken. Tasted a bit sour with the vinegar and white wine but over all a good change. All credits to this wonderful youtube video by Jas. Townsend. I followed the recipe changing verjus to distilled vinegar Notes Somehow I found it difficult to keep the batter and chicken together during frying. It was kind of peeling of.
Boiled eggs simmered in coconut milk with onion, ginger- garlic and spicy masala. One of the easy and tasty side dish that you can prepare very quickly. Mostly served for breakfast with Appam(Rice and Coconut pancake) or Noolappam(String Hoppers) or Puttu(Rice Steamed Cake). Also tastes great with roti or any Indian bread. Recipe adapted from my mom :)
Mung bean stir fry with coconut, garlic and green chilly. A relatively simple Kerala side dish - prepared together with rice/rice porridge/kanji for lunch. A comfort food and a very common dish at Kerala homes. I always get good quality organic dal and pulses from Bigbasket's organic section, when I was in Bangalore. The cooking time for moong dal depends on the dal. I have seen moong dal in different sizes and with different cooking times. So check and cook as needed.
Mussels sauteed with ginger-garlic and spices. A spicy dish, and very common in Northern Kerala (Malabar). It can be served as an appetizer or as a side dish with rice. Cherian and his colleague at Cookpad, Ryan went down to Half Moon Bay foraging for mussels. They came back with 4-5 pounds. This is probably the freshest mussels that I've ever cooked. Tastes best with coconut oil.
