Spicy Mutton Fry using FishandMeat Product

Spicy Mutton fry is a perfect side dish to serve with Rasam rice when you are down with cold during the winter season. Apart from Rasam rice, this fry goes well with plain rice and also, with sambhar rice. Frying chilies in an oil before adding the cooked mutton masala enhance the spiciness in the fry and in addition gives a delicious taste. The freshly ground pepper gives an extra punch to the dish. If you are a spicy food lover, then this mutton recipe is a must try dish.

After started getting fresh meat and seafood from FishandMeat, my frequency of traveling to market has reduced. Ordering the product is also quite easy either I have to order using their App or just through whatsapp. Recently received an IQF done mutton pieces from FishandMeat and the taste was similar to the fresh ones. IQF (Individual Quick Freezing ) is one of the freezing method followed in the food industry. Apart from meat, any smaller pieces of food items like berries, small fish, poultry, prawns and diced vegetables can be stored by this method. This method helps the product to retains its shape, color, taste, and smell.

The product has to be removed from the freezer only before starting the cooking process. Just drop the packet in a big bowl of water for about 20 minutes. This helps the meat to de-freeze and later, it can be used for cooking.

                The meat looked fresh and tender as shown in the pic below after 20 minutes. 

I have to thank FishandMeat for introducing such a technique which indeed helped me to learn more about this freezing method. I prepared a spicy fry out of this meat which turned out really yummy and here comes the recipe...

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.
