Friday Chat With Bloggers - Shama From Easy2cookrecipes

My journey of Friday chats with bloggers started this January and happy to receive lots of love and response from everyone. It’s been really pleasure to have my blogger friend’s chat and recipe in my space. I love and respect each and everyone comments which they share about my blog and really working on it to improve mine by adding few more recipes…

And coming to my today’s guest…

Shama , a very energetic blogger and lovely mother of 2 beautiful kids from easy2cookrecipes. She entered into this beautiful blogging world at 2008 and her journey still continues with yummy, innovative and delicious recipes. I really wonder the time she spends with blogging along with her kids and of course that shows her passion in cooking. While surfing her space, I was really amazed with the loads of recipes hidden and felt like home with all traditional recipes. Her space looks very perfect with clear explanation and measurements.  I personally loved all her recipes and as usual listing my few most favorite recipes of her….

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 ;)



Ingredients :

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.
