I love Saturdays now, seriously… 🙂 I guess you all would also appreciate my excitement. Each week, I get to meet such lovely characters, who walk into my life and make it so happening. This week, also I have one character whom I have met through the journey of blogging. We chat on and off a little and from what I have figured out, she seems to be somebody who gels with me. The way she chats is so very similar, as though I am talking to somebody just next door of my house, and yes, the talking has to be in Malayalam!!! 🙂
Today, I have with Shaahina, who blogs at Shaain’s Cooknotes. Let’s call her Shaai, as she tells in her post that she is calling me Rafee without my permission!!! 🙂 Hehe… my dear, most of them call me Rafee without my permission, mostly because I feel that my name is so long to be called as such!!! And then like many of you who call me with a lot of love… I love it when you all call me Rafee!!! She has been so sweet to write so much, really appreciate… I guess without much ado, let me welcome Shaai to do the honors of presenting her delicious looking Pan Fried Fish with Spicy Potato Wedges…
At first thank you so much Rafeeda for giving me such a beautiful space for introducing my page as well as
my simple recipe…I call her as Rafee without her permission….I don’t know what forced me to call her like that…(it may be due to the simplicity of her, so I feel that I can call her whatever I want)..We have started our friendship only
few weeks before and we are not having usual contacts even through the internet. But I like her and her blog so much..And I usually visit there and it’s worth to me. She updates her space up to date……On my first visit itself I
came to know that she is simple, down to earth person..We can feel it through her posts…yes like “ADUTHA VEETTILE PENKUTTI” – the girl next door!
the recipes are of fish and meat and they are naadan (from Kerala) only. The only reason is that my husband and my Appu. My part is also not less….Actually I was born and brought up in a weekly meat & fish family …….mostly
vegetables…and those we were having from our backyard only..My mom used to say that my dad started eating meat only after their marriage… After marriage I was transferred to a completely carnivorous family. At first I was surprised about that most of the days there were no vegetables …fish curry, fish thoran and fish fry? Very interesting na???????? They love fish at any time even for breakfast also…
leaving from school, I started crying like anything…And there was a small hotel near my house. My dad bought something, usually porotta and beef dry fry (BDF) from there to suppress my roar…….When grew up, the passion of food transformed into cooking. And now Master Appu have taken the roaring part of my childhood…If there is no fish, chicken or egg oh…my crying was so softer than him…And the taste checker in my home is also my little Appu (not too little…he is in 3rd..)….If he says a dish is good…it is very good and delicious.………
a fry or a biryani….I think for a guest post in such a popular blog…it should be a variety…So I decided to prepare it…and Alhamdulillah my better half and the next half like it so much…and they ordered it for their lunch boxes too..
Fish (Medium Size) : Cleaned and make vertical gashes on it): 2-3 ( I used Shour fish. Sorry I don’t know it’s English or Malayalam name)
Red Chilly Powder : 2 tsp
Turmeric Powder : ½ tsp
Pepper powder : 1 tsp
Ginger Garlic Paste : 1 tsp
Cumin Powder : 1 tsp
Green Chilly(chopped) : 1 tsp
Curry leaves (Chopped): 1 tsp
Coriander leaves : 1 tsp
Lemon juice : 1 lemon
Marinate the fish with all the ingredients except oil and keep in refrigerator for half n hour to one hour.
Heat a small quantity of oil in a thick bottomed pan.(if it’s an iron skillet, it would be more tasty).
Fry it till both sides have cooked well…
