Mutton Fried Rice

When it comes fried rice, i used to prepare with egg, chicken, sausage or with veggies...never tried with mutton..Had some leftover mutton in freezer, so first thought of preparing Rasam rice and pepper mutton fry (one of my all time fav ;) ) but unfortunately noticed that there was very little coriander leaves to prepare rasam :( It was always upsetting to change the recipe from your fav ...Then swapped my recipe to Mutton Fried Rice...No regrets after preparing and tasting this..Loved this and was yummy too..Finally our lunch menu ended with Hot Easy mutton soup and Mutton fried rice!!



250 Gms Mutton
1 Onion, finely chopped
1 Tomato, finely chopped
1 Tbsp Ginger Garlic paste
1 Tsp Turmeric powder
1 Tsp Chilli powder
1 Tsp Mutton masala
Salt to taste

1 1/2 Cups cooked rice, Raw rice or basmati rice
1 Cup Cabbage, shredded
1 Cup Capsicum, shredded
2 Tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 Tsp Pepper powder
1 Egg
1 Tbsp oil
Handful of Spring onions, chopped


First let us start with cooking the mutton...

Mix onions, tomato, ginger garlic paste, mutton masala powder, salt, turmeric powder and chilli powder .

Add water and pressure cook for 20 minutes or until mutton gets cooked.

Now remove only the mutton pieces and chop finely.

Reserve the remaining mutton flavored water for the Easy Mutton Soup recipe...Will post that soon...

Now keep everything ready...lets us start our mutton fried rice..

Heat oil in a pan and add the egg. Scramble it and fry it for a minute.

Add the shredded cabbage and saute well for 2 -3 minutes.

Add the capsicum now and saute again for a minute.

Now add the chopped mutton pieces and mix well..keep in simmer for couple of minutes.

Add the sauce, pepper powder and salt. Mix well and fry it for a minute.

At this stage, add the cooked rice and mix well. Simmer and mix well so that the flavors get mixed.

Switch off the flame and add the chopped spring onions.

Serve hot with tomato sauce.

Sankara Meen Kuzhambu / Red Snapper Fish Curry

Tangy and aromatic flavor of the curry along with a delicious taste of fish, when served with hot rice gives a joyous feeling for a FISH LOVER like me ;) This four letter word makes me drool any time and love it in any form of cuisine.
Generally Meen Kuzhambu is served with hot rice but it tastes more delicious and yummy when served with Hot steaming Idlis for the next day. The more the time, fish swims in the curry, the taste increases. Flavor of the Fish gets blend well with the curry and enhances the taste and aroma, when served it for the next day. 
Sankara fish has its unique taste and flavor and personally, I feel it gives delicious taste when prepared as kuzhambu than fry. Even few Restaurants started serving "Nethi Vacha meen Kuzhambu and Idli" in their menu.  

Are you a Fish Lover ?? Then get ready to Drool ;)

1/2 Kg Sankara Fish / Red Snapper Fish, Cleaned and Washed2 Big Onions, Finely chopped2 Medium sized Tomatoes, Finely Chopped3 Green chillies, sliced

Ekadesi Kali

Happy Ekadesi Friends!

Vaikunta Ekadesi  is celebrated every year in the month of December or January and particularly on the 11th waxing moon that falls in the Margazhi month. Early morning of this day “the gate to Lord Vishnu 's inner Sanctum” is opened and in tamil we used to call it as “sorga vassal”. And according to our family culture, we used to fast on this  particular day by taking only tiffin items ( No rice allowed). Along with that, Kali is made as offering for god. And the next day of ekadesi is called as Dhuvadesi, on which fast is broken with the preparation of rice and curry with 21 vegetables. My mom prepares karakuzhambu with 21 veggies and according to my in laws place we prepare sambhar with 21 veggies.
