Salami Stuffed Cheesy Mirchi

Mirchi Bajji – a very famous street food which makes me very nostalgic! Only very few recipes bring back our lovely moments and makes us smile all alone. And these fried ones are in my nostalgic list! This is my most favorite one so I make sure that I do not miss them whenever we go to the beach.  Sitting in the beach sand facing a lovely sunset n waves with our favorite people around holding a plate full of Hot bajji’s with watery chutney which runs around the plate…. just chatting n munching… Really those are Lovely days with no tension…no fear about future. And those days will never come back and am sure that everyone had some nostalgic moments like me….especially beach bajji’sJ

I got a chance to taste the most yummy mirchi bajji’s with the perfect delicious chutney some months back in Kerala. It’s THE BEST in my terminology and that’s the best mirchi bajji that I ever tasted in my life… The chutney which they serve has lots of finely chopped garlic and ginger with the tangy spicy flavor. Mainly the chutney is thick and very very spicy. Imagine hot mirchi bajji with spicy chutney!!!! Tempting right…uff I have already started drooling… he he ;)

Missing all those spicy nostalgic moments!!!

And coming to my today’s recipe…. I tried this recipe couple of months back for a completion conducted by I was shortlisted but was unlucky to get into the final list to win a Samsung phone. 

Stuffing cheese and olives in mirchi completely turned it to an Italian style… Fusion MirchiJ . And the taste was truly divine which made my hubby who is not fond of mirchi to gulp 3 stuffed mirchis ! Happy J

Served these fried ones with sweet chilli sauce to balance the taste.

Here is my style of fusion Bajji….

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.
