Green Chillie Stir-Fried Chicken

Green Chillie Stir-Fried Chicken Phewww...the last few months have been a tough in my part and I have completely lost touch with my kitchen. To make things worst one another fells sick very often due to dramatic climate conditions. Either shine whole day with the hot rays of the sun making one feel sweaty nor rain non-stop. May has being a happening moth so far.Both in good ways and bad. But we won't discuss the bad. I am trying to be in peace with the fact that --"If things are not in my control, I better not break my head trying to control them"Sometime when I sit down to write I tend to have a guilty feeling. Am I being totally honest here ? Am I portraying only a slice of my life here ?


Before I write even one more sentence I just confuse that all the upcoming recipes in my blog you guys read on are those laying in my draft for quite sometimes. Since I haven't really done anything special so I have decided to clear up all my waiting recipes to be posted. Today I wo…

Spicy Deep Fried Bread Rolls After a long break I'm back again with a mouth-watering quick snack from my kitchen to yours....BREAD ROLLSSS..yummy and tasty. Bread rolls are deep fried evening snacks which is normally prepared with potato fillings in center of the bread. A mouth watering snack prepared in a jiffy for hungry school returned kids. 


One snack I almost always craved for was this - Bread Rolls - in the Indian context.These are not baked from dough but made from slices of bread stuffed with potatoes and other vegetables.This snack is so lip smacking that it is universally liked and very easy to carry on picnics and journeys. Dash back to yours kitchen and start prepare them for the evening snack...the climate in Coimbatore is just nice and cosy for a plate of crispy bread rolls...sit back and relax sipping your favorite tea and dig into these rolls...heavenly...

Ingredients: Serving Size:6 persons 6 potatoes  1 pac sliced bread i medium red onion chopped finely 1tbsp minced garl…

Stir Fried Tom Y Noodles With Coconut Milk

Image
Stir Fried Tom Yum Noodles With Coconut Milk Most of the time I’ll cook with wherever I can find in my pantry or fridge and improvise. The result sometimes amazingly mouth-watering nor fit for the bins only..well that happens once a while..come-on  we are human rite..tend to make silly mistake. This is an appetizing, spicy, tangy and umami-filled seafood dish with delicious Thai flavors.  I used tom yum paste for today's recipes and accentuated the flavors with some fresh lemongrass and kaffir lime leaves. You can either make the tom yum paste from scratch or just find a good store-bought version.  I think it is totally fine to use store-bought pastes when the lack of time calls for it and since I almost always feel the need to doctor up my pastes, I have not really have bad experiences with any store-bought pastes I've used except for probably once or twice.


This Tom Yum fried noodles recipe makes for a quick, easy and totally satisfying meal. Fried noodles are a popular and ve…

Deep Fried Calamari

Deep Fried Calamari

This is so easy! Just like the restaurants "The coating is crispy though not overbearing, and the calamari will be tender". The trick here is that the Calamari needs to be cooked either super quick, or for a long time on a simmer for it to be tender. If you like fried calamari, you are going to love this recipe !This version of fried calamari is crisp and delicious, and simple to make too! This dish makes a great appetizer or party food recipe, or serve it with a salad and you have a complete meal. As this recipe will demonstrate, fried calamari needn't be as difficult as it sounds - simply cut the squid into rings, dip into a simple flour and spice mixture, and fry. Mmmm....easy and delicious! Crispy, tender, mouthwatering calamari....need I say more? Grilled over wood, stuffed and roasted, slow-cooked in a stew: I love squid in all its forms but none is more addictive than the deep fried version most commonly known as calamari.I like the tiny squidle…

Spicy Chicken With Dried Chillies Just trust me on this folks-If you can cook anything can be fixed up to fill up hungry tummies even at late nights or early morning. Well doing nothing sometimes has its own purpose that is not life that is complicated but we that makes it so. It's well know fact that I'm a chicken lover and cooking keeps me in the air as it nourish my kids and family but i'll have to admit that I cook for purely selfish reason- I just happen to fell in love with cooking and wants to try out new recipes. Anyway these stir-fried chicken dinner isn't so much as highly addictive drug but when mixed with dried chillies something will unleash in your brain that's one part pleasure and one part glorious pain--yes guys it's super spicy believe me!! Don't be deterred by the amount of dried chilies in this recipe. The chillies add a wonderful flavor and just a hint of heat. The ginger adds another dimension to this dish and really compliments the dri…

Keeri Chappati

Keeri Chappati Guessing many must have experience this-a woman enters the kitchen only after marriage and the first dish she gets her hands one would be either making crispy thosai nor soft fluffy chappatis... Believe me guys my thosai was a disastrous and was always  judged compared with my MIL. It's a well know fact that the South is famous for it's finger licking crispy thosai and the North for their specificity in preparing perfectly shaped chappatis.

Chappatis are day in and out meal and sounds boring when everyday at the dinning table you tend to find the same old stuff. Though there is always an additional taste when my dad prepare it then I do. I always love the soft hot chappati made by him back home. to make the chappati more relishing taste, many add curd. The chappatis will turn out to be extra soft and delicious when cooked with little butter. today  from taste of Saras Kitchen I'm sharing the my recipe of preparing Keeri Chappati- not perfectly shaped but tasty…

Kashmiri Chicken Curry

Kashmiri Chicken Curry
I have found myself in the uncanny position of having several blog postings in my queue, waiting to be written up to share with ya’ll. Alright, here's yet another chicken recipe I've been meaning to post for a while but haven't gotten around to doing so, that is, until now. I’ve been cooking up some awesome dinners with chicken when I was in USA. It’s not that I’ve been engaging in crazy techniques, or unusual ingredients, or delving into haute cuisine – it’s more about how elegantly and easily my meals have been coming out, and how delicious everything has been.

But after coming down here I'm not able to cook like that. As I have mentioned before many times that I have a huge collection of cooking books stored away in my small library...hmm well that's how I describe my cupboard stacked with books. There was a time when my son was in love with apples and stumble upon this recipe while I was searching for some different type of cooking method …

Grilled Italian Chicken

Grilled Italian Chicken When I was a young (ugh, every time I write that, I immediately feel like a little old lady..believe guys I found few white hairs tis morning while combing grrh), I’d repeatedly go through stack of cookbooks, bookmarking things that looked and/or sounded delicious. I’d check out cookbooks from the library in piles that nearly towered over my face. As is still the case, I preferred the books that had lots of pictures. Not necessarily step-by-step direction photos, but certainly a visual of the proposed final product.Just guess how I get ideas to give final output at my dining table.



I’m always on the lookout for fabulous recipes that use chicken breasts. Chicken is cheap, healthy, and easy to cook. But it can also be really bland or dry. There is seriously nothing worse than rubbery chicken. I think that’s what a lot of people think about when they think of chicken. Rubber or just plain old and boring- everyone’s fav young or old.Surely I am not the only one out t…

Going throughout my day thinking of all kinds of creative things to post about but when I finally sit down to do the actual write up a blog post my mine just freeze and goes blank. Do this happen to you guys out there too? Maybe its because I want to share many things with you guys that I don't even know where to start. anyway back to tday's recipe. I'm always collecting or looking out for recipes that taste great or even better but don't involve an all day session in the kitchen to prepare. And if I tend to make a dish ahead af time it's always a crowed pleaser at my dining table. The following is such one that was loved by everyone and it was done very long back when I was in Owasso. I got the this unique recipe for accident while searching for something different to be done with mutton. I had real difficult time finding some of the ingredients esp kalpasi. I'm pleased to share with you guys &qu…

Chicken Satay Stir-Fry Chicken tends to please most palates, whether you're cooking for a pack of finicky kids or health-conscious adults. But it can get boring if you're churning out the same old meals night after night. Mix up your usual menus with these peanut and coconut flavored chicken dishes, which use Indian spices, delectable sauces, and an endless variety of ingredients that surprise in tantalizing new ways. This Satay Chicken Stir-Fry is easy to throw together and will soon get the taste buds tingling Popular throughout Southeast Asia and Indonesia, satay is strips of skewered, grilled meat eaten with a fragrant dipping sauce Actually, I'm sure most people know what satay is. Satay must be the first thing that comes to the minds of non-locals when you mention Southeast Asian cuisine. There are many countries with their own version of satay, but the Singapore satay that I grew up with trumps all the Thai, Filipino or Indonesian versions. It's also one of the m…
