    The 18th Century Fried Chicken Nathan Bailey's 1736 cookbook Dictionarium Domesticum

    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.

  • Moong Bean / Green gram stir fry with coconut (Cherupayar Thoran - Kerala Style)

    Moong Bean / Green gram stir fry with coconut (Cherupayar Thoran - Kerala Style)

    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.
