Kerala Style Egg Curry

Here comes my one of my favorite cuisine recipe... Yes, I love Kerala cuisines and the aroma from their curry makes my mind fresh. I learnt this from my neighbor during my stay in Kerala and though it has the same ingredients which we prepare for Tamil Nadu egg curry, the preparation method and fresh sliced ginger heads it to a different cuisine. I prepared this curry by adding coconut oil to get its authentic taste but can also prepared using regular cooking oil. The fresh ginger not only enhances the flavor of curry but also gives a lovely aroma while cooking. This flavorful curry is served with Appam and Puttu, which is a very famous food in Kerala but I served it with Roti and Rice in which I loved the taste and flavor when eaten with rice. Simmer the flame after adding eggs,so that the essence from the curry gets absorbed in eggs and gives very delicious taste. Coconut milk can be also added in this curry.

Ingredients :

  • 4 Boiled Eggs
  • 3 Big Onions, sliced
  • 1 Big Tomato, chopped
  • 3 Green chillies,sliced
  • 1 inch ginger, sliced 
  • Handful of Curry leaves
  • 2Tsp Chilli powder
  • 11/2 Tsp Coriander powder
  • 1/2 Tsp Turmeric powder
  • 1 Tsp Garam Masala
  • Salt to taste
  • Water, as needed
  • 2 Tbsp oil (coconut oil or vegetable oil)

Method :

  • Boil eggs and keep aside.
  • Heat oil in a pan or kadai and add curry leaves followed by ginger.
  • Saute for half a minute and add the sliced onions.
  • Saute the onions till the color changes to light brown and add the chopped tomatoes.
  • Mix well and saute for a minute.
  • Add chilli powder followed by coriander powder, Turmeric powder and salt. Mix well and cook it for a minute.
  • Now add water (approx 1cup) and let it cook for 5 minutes in a medium flame.
  • Add garam masala at this stage and mix well.
  • Cook for another 3-4 minutes and meanwhile, cut the eggs one side or prick it with the fork.
  • Place the eggs in curry ,slowly mix it and place the cut portion of eggs in the bottom so that eggs absorbs the essence from the curry.
  • Simmer the flame and cook for 3 minutes.
  • Switch of the flame and let it set for 5 - 10 minutes for extra flavor.
  • Remove and serve hot.

Serving Options :

Serve with Appam, Puttu, Idiyappam and Rice.

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.
