BellPepper Wasabi Fried Rice

Wasabi is called as Japanese horseradish and used in Japanese cuisine. The paste form of wasabi is usually served in sushi restaurants. Nowadays, wasabi flavoured munchies are also available in the markets. It has a strong pungent and spicy flavour. So, be careful while adding it to the dish. According to the quantity of wasabi used in this recipe, the rice is not spicy but it gives a lovely flavour. This is a perfect lunchbox recipe which can be served with Tomato sauce or manchurian.

1/2 Tsp Soya Sauce ( I have used dark soya sauce ) 
1 Tsp Pepper powder 
Salt to taste 
1/4 Cup Spring onion leaves, finely chopped 
1 1/2 Tbsp Oil

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.
