Hong Kong Noodle Soup


This is my first time participating in an interesting event happening among food bloggers called Food Bloggers Recipe Swap. The concept of the group is that we have to recreate recipe from our co-blogger to whom we got paired with. This month I was paired with an amazing blogger as well as a trained Chef Mireille who blogs at www.theschizochef.com. I was truly amazed with the varieties of cuisine and recipe in her page. I have almost checked all her recipes from Recipe index and got into a confusion of which one to try. Even I had bookmarked few recipes to try them in the future. Such an amazing space and must visit page. While browsing her page for a recipe , my little one happened to see her delicious Hong Kong Noodles and got tempted as he love soupy noodles a lot. In addition, the word Hong Kong fascinated him as it was his first international trip. All the more reason for him to be back of me to prepare this Hong Kong Noodle Soup. As a mother, I fulfilled his cute request and he really enjoyed the soup. I have to Thank Chef Mireille for sharing such an easy and delicious soup. I made few changes by including my son's favourite veggie Mushroom and Tofu in the substitute of prawns. And the soup turned out very delicious with a quite simple process.

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.
