When I came over to the States, among the most surprising part was the grocery prices. In India, vegetables cost 1/5 or less than the price of meat and poultry but in the US you can get a pound of ground beef for $4 and a pound of tomatoes will cost the half at Safeway. It makes me wonder if these economics push people to eat just meat and carbs. The typical Indian family probably has 2-3 curries and roti/rice for lunch. And all these curries together won't cost anything close to a chicken side-dish. So when you get ground...
Fish steaks marinated with spices and then shallow fried. A very common dish at a South Indian home. It's an easy and a great appetizer and also goes well with rice. I used pomfret for the fish fry. You can also use king fish, seer fish, salmon, tilapia and other fishes for the same recipe. You can replace coconut oil with vegetable oil. Use coconut oil for authentic taste.
Chicken and vegetables cooked in a sauce combo and then mixed with rice. One another easy and most popular Indo Chinese style fried rice recipe to make at home. It's loaded with plenty of chicken and veggies and an easy one to prepare even on a hectic day. Notes: 1) Instead of onion, you can also use the white part of spring onions. And use green part of spring onion for garnishing.
Chicken cubes marinated, fried and sauteed in a spicy and tangy sauce. This is one of the most popular Indian Chinese style preparation. Best served with Vegetable/Chicken Fried Rice. Notes - I used Maggie tomato ketchup, Chings Green Chilli sauce and regular soy sauce. If you are using Dark Soy sauce, reduce the measurement. Adjust the sauce quantity as per your taste. With different brands, taste can differ a bit.
