Egg Curry – Anda Masala

View my step-by-step video

 

 

 

 

As far as Egg curries go, there are probably more than a 1000 different ways to make it. From the north to the south there are various different regional recipes and then there are the distinct curries from our neighboring countries – Pakistan, Bangladesh & Sri Lanka. Egg curries can be made with whole boiled eggs, or egg halves like I’ve used in this recipe and also in an egg drop style also known in the Middle East and Israel as Shakshuka.

This is a great curry to make, especially when you don’t have other protein on hand and you’re wondering what curry to make to satisfy your hungry family.

Whether you hail from Goa, Mangalore or Bombay if you’re East Indian just thinking about a nice homestyle Prawn curry with some mota chawal or fat rice will make your mouth water. There are so many preparations of Prawn Curry, not just for the Goans, Mangaloreans and the East Indians but there are various other types in the Indian cuisine as well. Mother India has a long coastline, from the Arabian Sea to the Indian Ocean and up to the Bay of Bengal, the seafood is varied and plenty. From Bengal in the East, down to the tip of Tamil Nadu and up to Gujarat, the states touch the waters and enjoy the bounty of the sea.

 

With my Goan father and East Indian mother, Prawn curry was a staple, especially on Sundays and days of fasting when we had to abstain from meat. Secretly, I love Prawn and Shrimp so much that it wasn’t much of a fast at all.

 

This curry starts off with the revered Kashmiri Chilli and includes all the usual suspects to make a wonderful curry blend for the Prawn or Shrimp to poach in. I hope you enjoy this amazing recipe and do check out the video.

Kingfish Caldine -Caldeen – Caldinho

I am originally from Goa, so I love to make dishes that I’ve tasted growing up. This Fish Caldine or Caldinho as it’s known to the Portuguese purists, can also be prepared with Shrimp or Veggies is a mild and mellow curry compared to many other more fiery Goan curries. Typically local fish like Pomfret or Surmai is used but any fish would be suitable. I’m using the hearty Kingfish fillets in this recipe.

Tamarind, coriander seeds, cumin, peppercorns, onions and red chillies are ground together to make a golden yellow curry paste and it’s enhanced with coconut milk to make a beautiful gravy bath for the Okra and the fish.

Crab Xec Xec – Goan Crab Curry

View my step-by-step recipe

 

 

 

 

 

 

This beloved Goan to the core recipe has a strange name but BIG on flavor. Crab Xec Xec or Shek Shek as it’s called is made by roasting Spices, Coconut, Onions, Ginger & Garlic together and simmering crab in it. The contrast between the roasted masala or spice blend with the sweetness of the Crab is heavenly.

Of course in coastal Goa, seafood is fresh right out of the Indian Ocean. Here in Canada, I make do with frozen Ceylon Blue swimming crabs – they are still from the Ocean though. I find the use of these pre cleaned & pre cut Crab really convenient, but you can use whatever type of Crab you like.

There are many types of Crab curries served in Goa but with it’s unmistakable roasted flavour, the Xec Xec is unique.

Shahi Chicken Korma

View my step-by-step video

 

 

 

 

 

 

When you have the word Shahi in a recipe, you know it’s going to be fit for a King. This recipe is no exception, the gravy is earthy and deep, made creamy with a paste made with cashew, onions, chillies and yogurt. Chicken is sautéed in the spices and cooked till tender and it’s finished off with saffron milk.

The earthy flavor in this recipe comes from the fried onions that are cooked till a medium brown and then ground together with cashew nuts, red Kashmiri chillies and yogurt. I typically make this curry for a special occasion and serve it garnished with fried onions, cashews and coriander. It’s great served with rice or rotis.

Shahi Chicken Korma

  2. Add the Kashmiri Chillies, just break them in half, remove the seeds and throw them in
  3. Once the onions are quite brown, add the Cashew nuts
  4. Now this is the colour I’m looking for so I’m just going to remove all the onions and keep aside. If you leave some onion behind it’s fine, but get all the chilli and cashews and allow this to cool
  5. Prepare the saffron milk by steeping the saffron strands in some hot milk
  6. Once the onion mixture is cool add it into a fod processor and start to grind this using half the yogurt to help it blend
  7. Reheat the oil and I’m going to add the whole spices
  8. Add the ginger and garlic paste and saute to remove that raw taste

  13. Cover and allow the tomatoes to cook till they are mushy

  15. Add one cup of water to that food processor to pick up any left over paste under the blades and add this in as well
  16. Add the remaining half of the yogurt and mix
  17. Check for salt again

Some recipes just make you want to go balle balle!!!! Punjabi dishes in Indian cuisine are crazy popular and for good reason. From Parantas to garma garam Tandoori Chicken we are always left wanting more. Their Chana or Chole is no exception. Made famous by the way side restaurants or Dhabas, this Chana Chole is always served steaming hot with a bread called the batura. This can also be eaten as a main or a side with roti or rice. What I love about this recipe is that the chana or garbanzo beans as we know it in this part of the world is cooked together with spices and black tea thus infusing the delicate beans with flavor and color.

What’s interesting about this recipe is the use of black tea. This is used to flavor the chana as well as impart a deep color.  I like to use a homemade Garam Masala in this recipe to give it it’s rich taste – https://youtu.be/kkiYMQrYqUc

Thai Massaman Beef Curry

View my step-by-step video

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My obsession with Thai food is fairly recent but pretty intense. I always loved Chinese food, but Thai food combines ingredients like Coconut milk and spices like Cumin and Coriander which are very popular in Indian cuisine as well. I started mastering the basics like red and green curry and moved on to Massaman & Panang. Each spice base has someone the same ingredients but are very distinct in their taste.

 

The Massaman curry base is very unique – spices like fennel, cumin, coriander, cloves, cardamoms, cinnamon and black peppercorns are pounder together with the usual suspects, red chillies, shallots, lemongrass, ginger and galangal. And of course it’s finished off with fish sauce and shrimp paste. If you like to make a vegetarian or vegan version of the paste substitute light soya and spicy bean paste for the fish sauce and shrimp paste. I’ve used this to make a delicious Thai Massaman Noodle Salad and in a Peanut sauce and now I’m going to simmer chunks of meat in this blend of spices and creamy Coconut milk. This curry is hearty, cooked together with potatoes, studded with peanuts and served with some Jasmine rice, you gotta try it.
