Tandoori Fish Fry | Fish Fried with Tandoori Masala




Tandoori Fish Fry is a delicious way to use Tandoori Marinade.  Seafood lovers will love this coastal recipe. It uses the Tandoori marinade in a slightly different method adding some additional coating and instead of being grilled in a tandoor or oven, this Fish  is  pan fried on one side prior to being broiled  under a grill to cook it to flaky perfection!

Stuffed Mussels | Kallumakkaya Nirachathu

Stuffed Mussels | Kallumakkaya Nirachathu  – Mussels Stuffed with a ground rice and coconut paste, steamed and then fried. This is one very tasty Malabar Snack.   It gives the impression that it is hard to make, when in actuality it is not so difficult at all!  In the Malabar region, these are made on special occasions or for special guests. And being such ardent lovers of hospitality, you can be sure these snacks are made quite frequently

‘Kallumakkaya’ is the native word for Mussels. They are also known as ‘Kadukka’. ‘Nirachathu’ translated, means ‘Stuffed’. The dish is also sometimes called ‘Arikadukka’ – ‘Ari’  refers to the rice used for making the stuffing. Although I love it crisp an fried all on its own, some like to use a dipping sauce of some kind. Thousand Island dressing or Tartar Sauce are good choices

Malabar Fish Curry with Coconut Tamarind and Tomato

 

Kerala is known for its delicious fish and seafood. There are so many varieties of fish curry that are so very delicious. While in many curries, ‘kudampuli’ or gambooge is used, in the Malabar region, most curries only use tamarind as the souring agent.  Ground coconut, tomato and tamarind flavors this curry, which is so simple to make but so heartwarmingly comforting to eat as well! Served over rice with papad and vegetables or even for breakfast with puttu.  For this curry, I love to use the milk pepper  (thondan mulaku, ney mulaku (ghee pepper) or sambar chilli). It has the loveliest buttery or milky aroma. It can be replaced with any mild green chilli. The curry is also best made with fish like Seer Fish.

Brik | Delicious Tunisian Pastry

Brik (Breek)

Brik | Delicious Tunisian Pastry

No No, we are not into eating brick!  Brik (بريك) is a famous Tunisian  deep fried pastry. This is absolutely scrumptious, if you’ve never tried it before. This version (one of the more popular ones), has a filling of whole egg , seasoned tuna, onion, parsley and capers. Some versions add Harissa to spice things up, but here I  use the Tunisian spice mix ‘Tabil’.  You might compare it with a samosa, but the filling is entirely different … imagine cutting into the pastry and getting delicious oozilicious egg!! My kids are bonkers for oozy egg yolk, so they adore Brik!

brik recipe tunisia

Brik pastry is known as Malsouka ملسوقة  or Warka.Brik pastry is a very thin pastry that comes wrapped in cellophane. The thin, round sheets are made by slapping a sticky dough onto a hot non-stick surface in overlapping circles  and cooked for a short amount of time.

The tuna filling may be substituted with chicken, or minced meat. I will also be adding the recipe for ‘Swebaa Brik’ – Brik Fingers, soon which is finger sized spring roll shaped pastry with minced meat, egg and cheese filling. Thanks again to my friend Nadege for helping me with My Tunisian recipes.

In the picture, I have used only the Hard Roe of King Fish. The roe is cooked in spiced and seasoned coconut milk before frying (scrambling) in coconut oil. Yum!

Tempura Prawns | Crispy Japanese Battered Prawns | Ebi Tempura |

 

Tempura is the ever popular Japanese Batter Fried Seafood or Vegetable dish that can be served as starters. Tempura Prawns | Crispy Japanese Battered Prawns is without doubt the most popular. So easy to make. The batter is very light and yet so crisp. Tempura must be served immediately.  I sometimes marinate the prawns in a little soy sauce and sesame oil first, which I think is not traditional. Key to making a good batter is that It must be very cold (add ice cubes) and it must have some lumps (not super smooth). Consistency, may be adjusted to personal taste though, I like my batter a little thinner. I added more liquid.
