Chicken Noodles

My today's Chicken noodles is an interesting recipe which is prepared using a over night marinated chicken pieces. The chicken is marinated along with a regular Chinese sauces and 5 spice powder. The marination technique enhances the taste and flavour of the dish. I have used Shanxi sliced noodles which can also be replaced with Hakka or any variety of noodles. No extra sauces required while cooking, as the marination contains all the required flavours.

Ingredients :

300 gms Shanxi Sliced Noodles ( Any noodles can be used )
2 Tbsp Olive oil 
1 Medium sized Onion, Sliced 
1 Cup Shredded Cabbage 
Salt to taste 
Crushed pepper / pepper powder 
Few finely chopped spring onion leaves 

To Marinate :

250 gms Chicken, Boneless cut into strips 
1 Medium sized Green bell pepper, sliced 
1 Medium sized Yellow Bell pepper, sliced 
1 medium sized Red Bell pepper, sliced 
1 Tsp 5 Spice powder 
1 Tsp Soya sauce 
1 Tsp Red chilli sauce 
1 Tsp Green chilli sauce 
1/4 Tsp Pepper powder 
Few Basil leaves 

Method :

Mix all the ingredients given in "To Marinate" list and marinate it overnight. 

Cook noodles in a boiling water along with salt for 6 mins or according to the package instructions and keep aside. 

Heat oil in a pan and add sliced onion.

Saute till it turns translucent and add the shredded cabbage.

Saute for half minute and add the marinated chicken mixture. 

Add the required amount of salt and cook till the chicken gets cooked. 

Once done, add the cooked sliced noodles and mix well.

If the noodles looks dry, add little pasta boiled water and toss it well.

Add crushed pepper or pepper powder according to taste bud and garnish with spring onion leaves. 

Serve hot. 

Serving Options :

Serve with Tomato sauce or Red chilli 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 ;)

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.
