KORMA RECIPE / MUTTON RECIPES - MALABAR MUTTON KURUMA

MUTTON KURUMA

My family loves  Mutto recipes very much. Especially mutton pepper roast ( kurumulakitta aatirachi) . I used to prepare mutton pepper roast whenever I buy fresh mutton. While selecting mutton for preparing any mutton curry recipe or for any mutton roast recipe , try to select tender mutton for best result. Kerala style mutton recipes especially Malabar style mutton recipes are very popular for its taste and aroma. Mutton korma or mutton Kuruma is an Indian dish which can be prepared in different taste and texture. Indian style mutton korma is entirely different from the Malabar mutton Kuruma. In Malabar mutton Kuruma , the addition of thick coconut milk or coconut mixture makes this mutton dish really special. Here I used thick coconut milk for the outstanding taste. Malabar mutton korma or Kerala style mutton korma pairs best with hit porotta or ghee rice. You can also make Beef korma or beef Kuruma following the same recipe. And can aldo add more chili powder if you prefer Indian style mutton Kuruma recipe.

TEA RECIPES - HOW TO MAKE PERFECT SOUTH INDIAN TEA

Tea is the popular and all time favorite hot beverage to most of us.  In South India, each households has their own way for making Tea. Some prefer strong tea for a refreshing feel while some prefer very light tea. I guess majority of my readers are Tea lovers like me.

I love to have a strong tea or strong chai ( Chaya) in the morning and in the evening for a refreshing feel.  Like so, some people love to have milk in their tea while some loves having milk powder instead. 
I used to make tea using milk powder and sometimes with fresh milk. Now a days you can see various types of plain or flavored tea powder. I prefer using Red label tea powder for making a nice cup of milk tea or milk powder tea ( chai ). Like so , I prefer using Nido milk powder, Anchor milk powder , Rainbow​ milk powder for making my tea. If in Kerala, I prefer using Amulya milk powder also. This recipe for tea calls for milk powder or Fresh milk,  sugar and tea powder for making the perfect tea. Some prefer creamy and frothy tea while some need their tea to be very light . So in that case, add  fresh milk alone for a creamy tea and add some water along with fresh milk for a light tea. Enjoying a cup of hot strong tea is one of the simplest pleasures in our life, I think. Some will think that making a fine and perfect tea is the easiest work in the pantry. But it's not that easy to prepare a nice cup of tea without knowing the correct measurement and proportion for tea powder, milk powder and water or milk. It is very important that the ingredients should be in proportion. Here are some tips for making the perfect tea. Do try this tea recipes at home and enjoy .

So here am with an easy and simple Kerala snack or Malabar snack - Elanji ( elanchi) which is also called as sweet love letter snack or Mayyathappam . The batter for making the  crepe is made by combining of grinding  All purpose flour ( maida ) along with egg, turmeric powder, salt and water.

The filling for this crepe is made of roasting scraped coconut along with sugar and cardamom. The filling must be very soft which tastes really outstanding. I used to prepare this snack daily to pack for my kids snack  box. But instead of All purpose flour, I prefer adding rice flour only....But you have to compromise slightly on its taste and softness.
