Mushroom and Spinach with Burnt Garlic

I have been asked why my posts are always about chicken, meat, fish or seafood. They ask “Do you not eat (or cook) any vegetables?”. The answer is “yes, I do.” In fact, while growing up, for every meal, my mom used to serve two vegetable based curries. Even now, we have at least one vegetable dish included in our lunch and dinner meals. But, for me, the “hero” in all those meals has been the protein, which is the aforesaid chicken, meat or fish. That’s why I almost, always, post these “hero” recipes.

Coriander Fried Chicken

This is not a typical batter fried chicken. This is not a typical Indian chicken fry either! Enough of all the negativity. It takes less than 45 minutes from reading this recipe to serving some great food – try this recipe, and cook some amazing fried chicken. Crispy on the outside, tender and juicy inside – this fried chicken ticks all the boxes! By the way, the name comes from the coriander powder used in the marinade.

Kerala Mixture (Chivda)

Spicy Mixture – This humble snack, in its various avatars, is a popular, omnipresent item in all bakeries and hot chips shops across Kerala. When you have guests at home for tea, the spread is not complete without a serving of mixture. Despite being a big fan of the mixture, I had never thought that one day I’ll make this at home.

You can also make this at home. No additives, no preservatives, and no reused oil! Just a tasty, crispy snack!
