Sivakasi Style Mutton Varuval | Mutton Fry Dry | Varutha Kari

  The two occasions when I see the husband getting excited are: 1. While watching a LIVE cricket match of India. 2. When I make non-vegetarian his native style non-vegetarian dish. So when I made this Mutton Sukka Varuval on a day when India played a LIVE cricket match, he was double excited! This Mutton Varuttha Kari recipe is from his native place Sivakasi. That means, the dish has a very simple profile like this Simple and Easy Sivakasi Mutton Kulambu (Gravy) recipe which I posted few weeks back.         So why is this Mutton Chukka Kari Varuval very simple to make? It’s because it requires no complicated process to prepare; it’s because it requires no grinding of any masala with mixer grinders; it’s because it requires no queuing of spices on the kitchen table; it’s because it requires no tomatoes or green chilies or coconut. It just… Continue reading »

Sivakasi Style Mutton Kari Kuzhambu | Tamilnadu Mutton Gravy Recipe

  I have bragged about my Mother’s cooking, maternal Grandmother’s recipes, paternal Grandmother’s recipes, but, never did I mention about my Mother-in-law’s recipes in any post. Did I? This finding was done by the husband. So were the complaints too . In order to react to his complaints , like how people used to have weekly status calls with onsite/offshore team, I had week-end calls scheduled with my offshore team lead (you should understand it’s my mom-in-law, here ). During the calls, I noted down recipes after recipes like: Sivakasi Mutton Kuzhambu, Sivakasi Mutton Varuval, Soose berry, Rava paniyaram, Mundhiri Kotthu, Poori Masala, Maida Maavu Poori, Kotthamalli Chutney, Murukku, Butter Beans Poriyal, Vazhaikai Poriyal, Naattu Kozhi Kuzhambu, Sotru Vattral (Rice Crackers) and what not! My co-sister (who’s from Nagerkoil) helped me with hands-on for few of these recipes. I started to cook food in my mother-in-law’s way . Today, I’ve… Continue reading »

Green Chicken Gravy | Hara Chicken Masala Recipe | Haree Masala Chicken

  I already feel like a restaurateur! Yes, I do! I made this Green Chicken Curry and it drifted that special aroma which used to linger along my favorite restaurant into my living room! Read on to see how you can make a Restaurant Style Green Chicken Masala.     The easiest way to make the husband pleased is by trying out different varieties of  curries non-vegetarian curries. My followers know that I spoke more about it in the posts Roasted Lemony Chicken Breast and Lemony Mushroom Marinade. This Haree Masala Chicken is a totally different curry than my usual Pepper Chicken Fry or Kozhi Varuval (Masala Chicken Fry). Different because, unlike the other two recipes, the only whole-spice used in this Greeny Chicken Curry is Cloves. Cloves, for this recipe helps in giving a spicy-sweet aroma that can camouflage the raw smell of the meat. When I say, Green… Continue reading »

Chicken Biryani Recipe | Murgh Biriyani Recipe | Indian Style

      When my siblings and I used to be younger,Amma makes Biryani very rarely. When it comes to making biriyani at home, the whole family gets together in the kitchen, everybody pretending to help mom . Mom starts by dictating a big list of ingredients, while the sister writes them on a lonngggg sheet of paper. When the father makes a big fuss in going to the market or the stores on other days, he gets ready almost immediately on this particular day knowing the menu. He kick starts his bike, waiting for the complete list and the market bag. He then returns with at least half the market stuffed into a sack bag, buying all and other items that were not in the list too! Mutton, Chicken, Biryani rice, Onions, Tomatoes, Chilies, Cashews, Coconuts, Banana Leaves, Mint leaves, Coriander leaves, Chicken-65 masala, ice creams, betal leaves etc… Continue reading »

Best Chicken Rub Recipe | Lemon Zest Chicken Roast Recipe

  You’re Welcome. Yes, you’re welcome! Because  I know I’m going to get loads of paper garlands from my readers with THANK YOU notes written in it 😉 This Chicken Breast recipe is going to get an overwhelming response like how my Pepper Chicken Fry  recipe did!There used to be days when we used to enjoy Chicken Tandoori for most of the week-end nights. We somehow got bored of it and desperately wanted to have a different recipe to marinade the Chicken. Thus came this Simple, Quick and easy Chicken rub recipe. Preparing this Chicken marinade or the Chicken rub is no big deal. It is a ‘No-Grind’ marinade recipe. All it needs is fresh Lemon or Lime, for the zest and the juice. Yes we’ll be using both the juice and the essential oils from the lemon/lime skin (lemon/lime zest) along with some cracked pepper and finely minced garlic.     You must know… Continue reading »

Tilapia Puttu Recipe | Meen Puttu | Shredded Tilapia Fry

A humble lunch; Steamed rice – Hot Rasam – ‘Warm Tilapia Fish Puttu’ –> If you are enjoying this sitting at home, consider you are blessed!   Did I say I used to feel weird when the cleaning-cooking-eating is done by me while handling meat/poultry/fish in my previous post ? Several years back, when I prepared my ‘first’ non-veg dish [which was Chicken Varutha Kari – a family recipe], that night, I had ugly dreams of handling and cutting countless chicken pieces and mutton pieces with great difficulty. I can still remember how my face looked in that dream. It looked like an angry butcher working with a blunt knife . I felt as though the chicken is taking the revenge by haunting me in my dreams. It’s true that the same dream re-played every time I had to work with meat/fish. But it’s all ‘thoughts’. Once I started to… Continue reading »

Varutha Curry Recipe | Mutton Varuval | Mutton Fry

  He said: ‘MMmmmmmmm…..mmmmm… you nailed it’. The dish was ‘Mutton Varuttha Kari’– a recipe passed on from my paternal grandmother to my mom……   Did I tell you that Sambhar was the first recipe I learnt from my mom? I’m still continuing my culinary education in her University, but now it is distance education (actually should be called ‘a-lonnnnnng-distance-education’). She conducts the theory classes from India over the phone and I dry run the recipe during the hands-on in my very kitchen here in the US. Just listening to the theory I will be able to replicate the DNA ribbon of the original recipe to almost 85% in my first trial. However, there will be at least 15% defect in my RUN1 of the recipes [as assessed by the tester, who is the husband here.] The tester reports: ‘masala formula not correct’ or ‘masala not perfectly cooked’ or ‘something’s… Continue reading »

South-Indian Mutton Keema Gravy (using Kadalai Paruppu)

  This is my Mom’s special recipe – Indian style  gravy using Mutton Keema. Mom uses mutton chunks in this gravy. Since I prefer to eat mutton in Qeema form I used minced mutton. A notable difference in this Mutton gravy recipe is the addition of split chickpeas (kadalai paruppu). Apart from making pakodas, pakoda kulambu, beans-kadalai paruppu poriyal, beetroot kadalai paruppu poriyal, valakkai-kadalai paruppu kootu, cabbage-split chick pea kootu, kadalai paruppu pachadi, kadalai paruppu sundal and the ‘N’ other kadla paruppu recipes that we make in our home, this Kadalai Paruppu Kuzhambu is the darling of the home masses. I do not remember if my Grandmother made this Ground mutton gravy but I remember my mom making it on the week-ends when I was younger. The other day my friend Sup visited us and when we exchanged recipes she raised brows when I said that we add split chickpeas… Continue reading »

Indian Chicken Soup Recipe –Tamilnadu Kozhi Soup

  Though there will be elaborate plans in my kitchen like preparing Chicken pepper fry and Chicken Biriyani with the chicken bought from the market, the first thing that’ll go on the stove to get ready is this Simple Chicken Soup recipe. Since this Chicken Soup can be made quickly and easily, I set it first thing on the stove while I do the preparation work for the pepper chicken fry or the Biryani. This way I need not keep the family waiting until the curry and the rice is done. Once the chicken soup gets ready everybody enjoys a bowl of hot-o-hot chicken soup. A bowlful of this hot and warming Chicken Soup gives me strength to execute my elaborate meal plan. Like most of my recipes, this Kozhi Soup (Chicken Soup) is also a family-taught recipe, very authentic! Best Chicken Soup can be prepared only with freshly cut… Continue reading »
