Expecting more such recipes in the upcoming "Indian Cooking Challenge"
Sunday, June 28, 2009
This months 'Tried and Tasted' is hosted at KitsChow and the blog she has selected is Meena's "Hooked on Heat". I have been following Meena's blog for a long and long time now .Its very hard to come out of her blog one you start browsing through her recipes.The amazing pictures and the simple recipe along with her long stories keep us hooked on. Hers was one of the blogs that inspired me start with my own and I came to know about the concept of food events through her event " From My Rasoi" .
That was my first participation in a food event .
Though I have tried many dishes from her blog, I made this 'Rajathani Kadhi' especially for this event for the second time.The recipe is very simple and yet very different from the traditional South Indian mor kuzhambhu and the North Indian Kadhi.
Changes I made :
I used 2 red chillies for tempering, and since I ran out of coriander seeds I used 1 tsp of coriander powder.
I hope you all try this out and enjoy.

The recipe was so simple I immediatly baked them. As she mentioned in her post I added some sugar to the berries before mixing as mine was very sour.But the muffin tasted really good with no trace of the sourness.
This recipe was already book marked by me when she posted it last month, waiting for some neglected strawberries, and so baked that wonderful soft cake the next day.
Note : I used whole wheat flour completly for this recipe, and somehow my batter become a little thin , but my muffins came out just fine.

2 Salmon Fillets cubbed.
1 tsp chilli power
2 garlic cloves chopped finely
1 tblsp Olive oil
1 tblsp lemon juice
1 tsp fennel seeds/powder (optional)
salt as required
Mix all the above ingredients and marinate for an hour(atleast a minium of 15 mins)
Preheat the oven at 250C
Place the Fish cubes in a tray lined with slightly greased foil.
Bake for 10 mins, and then turn the pieces and bake for another 10 mins .After this turn the fish pieces again, set the oven in the broiler mode and broil for 5-8 mins or until the colour turns to red.Depending on the oven the timings may vary. Just keep an eye on it so that the fish doesnt get burnt.
Make sure that its not broiled for a longer time as the fish will become dry and rubbery.

Sending this as an entry to the 'Sugar High Friday (SHF)' event which was started by Jennifer of 'Domestic Goddess' hosted by Mansi of the Funs and the food blog.
The theme for this months theme is 'Fruits and Nuts'
After reading Rekha's post about her pictures being hosted elsewhere, I did a search on one my most favourite picture 'Semiya Kesari' which gets the most hits in my blog.Guess what ! it ended up in the following blog.
This is too much.How dare she. Even the recipe is the same.
here is my old link which was posted in 2006.
I thought it would never happen to me..but I understood that no one can escape from these awful things.My surprise is that this is a well known blog watched and commented by all us food bloggers.She has a comment section and I have commented there now.
Please check out if there are any of your pictures over here.
Now I have become a maniac doing google searches on all my pictures to see if there any other hypocrite over there.
Does any of you know the html code for blocking image copying...please let me know.Thats the only option I can think of right now to protect my already posted pictures.
