Easy Fried Chicken and Avocado Dip

I used to prepare this very simple fried chicken for my kid as finger food without the addition of lemon juice... Very easy n simple to prepare and used to prepare this only for him as we have other  chicken curries n briyani to eat... My husband always complains that I prepare very little of these fried ones... So bought some chicken breasts few days back n prepared this fried chicken n Avocado dip for him as a surprise treat for his dinner..... We have lovely memories with the Avocado fruit too.... Avocado's reminds us of our trip to Kurumba Resort.... Tasted this for the first time there as creamy soup... since then we guys had fallen in love with this flavourful fruit...  My hubby is not a great risk taker in tasting foods.. so when I do some innovation in recipes...its like writing an exam for me :) (chemistry paper was equally difficult for me!!!!) and his reactions are like exam results...sometimes I do get distinction... sometimes I pass and sometimes arrears
 ( have to try that till I get pass mark ;) ) he he.... But his words, appreciation and support means a lot to me...He is so supportive and helps me alot in blogging....

And coming back to my recipe....Served this for our dinner and enjoyed alot... The best compliment is he loved the Avocado dip sooo much that he ended up used this as spread over crispy ghee dosas :)

Potato & Peas Fry / Urulai kizhangu Patani Varuval

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.
