Malabar Shrimp Biriyani

The authentic shrimp biriyani of Malabar..This is a one-pot meal..But the ingredients in this dish bring it to a super delicious level…Malabar Muslims are the experts in making the awesome biriyani…they are born experts in biriyani making and for that matter any other non veg dish..I always find this cumbersome…prep part of making a biriyani…You need somebody to help peeling the garlic and onions and preparing the masala…Anyway the effort did pay well, of course…Rice got a little overcooked…without compromising on taste…

Sunday Breakfast (curd vada and idly)

Sundays, people take it lightly and go with the least effort breakfast…bread and egg, oats or cornflakes…we make it a little elaborate…try to make pooris, chappathis, or pathiri which are tasty and little time consuming and caloriewise on the higher side…After all, at least one day be indulgent…Balance days do a little bit dieting to make up for the achieved calories.

Oats idly…My favorite. Was always postponing making this as my husband is totally against experimenting with anything  other than the usual idly batter.  … was worth it anyway. Once in a while you have to pamper your taste buds…
