Green chilly fries(Re posting)

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
All time favorite at home. Have with hot rice and dal, have with puran poli or holige or any sweet dish.. Make yogurt poha with it, just add it to the rasam... 
We love these fried chillies and we never forget to make these during summer and preserve it for the whole year.
Re posting the same for the event 

Green chilly fries


I
Coming to this recipe,  these type of green chillies are available only during February and March month. So it is perfect to prepare these in Summer as these chillies need sundry. 






Fresh long green chilly - 1 kilo
Fresh yogurt or curds - 1/2 kilo, adjust less or more as per required
Salt to taste
Hing - 1 tbsp or a pea nut size(crushed) if using hard hing
Long thick needle to slit the chillies

Wash the green chillies and dry with soft towel or cloth to remove any water. Slit all the chillies on one side so that the curd gets mixed.
Transfer the curd in a big plastic or glass bowl. 
Add salt and hing. Mix it well.
Add slit green chillies in to it and with a wooden spatula or bare hands(if you can bear the pain later :-)  ) mix the chillies with curds.
This should be prepared in the morning so that you can keep it to dry. 
Spread a thick cleaned plastic sheet in a place where there is lot of sun rays. Take only the chillies(leave the curds in a bowl itself and keep it covered)and spread these on the plastic sheet. Allow to dry till evening. In the evening, again put the chillies back into curds. Mix it properly and keep it till next morning. Again take only chillies and put to dry like previous day. Repeat it for 3 days. From 4th day, dry the chillies till they are totally dry. This may take 2 days depending on the weather. Once the chillies are dry, the color will also change to brown. 
Store in air tight container (good plastic or glass will be fine ). You can store it for a year also.
When ever required, take the chillies out and fry in hot oil. Use it with rice, chapati as a side dish.

                                        

Sending this to Kaveri's on going event "Event Announcement - Guest Hosting EP Series - Fenugreek Leaves and Green Chili in her blog Palakkad Chamayal which is the brain child of   Julie.

Green chilly fries(ಬಾಳಕದ ಮೆಣಸಿನಕಾಯಿ)

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
I think I delayed posting this recipe as this is prepared in summer and kept for a year. This is also a very common summer preparation with paapad and other fryums. We call it 'baalakad menasina kai" and have it in our regular meals. But as all of you know that I was in Pune for than a month. Actually I had kept few recipes in my draft thinking that I will post them regularly. But my brother's house computer was under repair and I did not get much time to use his personal laptop when he was at home in the evenings.( talking, going out!!!) This time was a real holiday for me. Soon, I will come with details about my holidays in Pune.
THANK YOU ALL FOR BEING WITH ME WHEN I WAS NOT POSTING REGULARLY.

Hi All
It is so easy to prepare food, when some one is guiding you!! That's why I enjoy very much when ever I follow other blog and cook any dish. And I post it in 'Food Remake' label, as it is very common in Indian film industry to remake the movies from one language to the other. So even my food here is the remake one!!!
Laxmi of Taste of Mysore has a wonderful blog, and I follow her recipes regularly. 
This recipe  was a hit in my house with the children and my friends. So I thought of sharing my click with all of you!

Hottt chilly chutneys

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi all,
North Karnataka is famous for spicy food. We like to eat plain green chilly with Jowar rotti and onion. The side dishes that goes very well with chapati, roti and rice are always spicy. At least 2 types of dry chutney powder and one chilly chutney is always there in the house.



In my house, the GREEN CHUTNEY is always there, as we add it for few preparations where green chilly is required. It can be stored in fridge for a week.


Another is called RANJAKA, which has very few ingredients and can be stored for months, if preserved properly. People who likes lemon and chilly taste, will enjoy this.
               Green chutney
 
                                         Ranjaka                  Kempu Chutney


The third one is KEMPU CHUTNEY(RED CHUTNEY, ಕೆಂಪ ಚಟ್ನಿ ), made with more ingredients and can be stored in fridge for maximum 15 days. It has sweet and tamarind taste.




I tried my poor photo or camera skills on these poor chillies and chutneys!!! I think the chillies and chutney bowls might be laughing for my try!!! 



Here comes the recipes,
1)GREEN CHUTNEY : This chutney is favorite of our ajji(who stays with us). She always keep it ready, as it is easy for her to prepare food.
Green chilly - 15 to 20, washed and wiped and cut into pieces
Fresh coconut - 4 to 6 tbsp
Garlic - 10 to 12 flakes
Curry leaves - 12  to 15 leaves
Fresh coriander - little
Salt - 2 tbsp(As we add salt to the vegetable or any preparation)
Cumin seeds - 1 tbsp
Mix all the ingredients and prepare the chutney with very little water.
This chutney can be used while making, any moong , brinjal , ridge gourd preperations. Or as per the ingredients you can use it.OR  simply have it with hot jowar rotti and oil. Believe me it tastes very nice.


2)RANJAKA: This is my mother's favorite chutney! Usually, we bring the readymade one from shop!!, but my mother likes to make at home, when ever the fresh red chillies are available(there is a particular season to get these fresh red chillies! and now the season is going on!! So the one in the photo is prepared by mom at home!!)
Recipe for the chutney:
Fresh red chillies - 250 gm, wash, wipe,cut  and keep aside.
Methi (fenugreek) seeds - 2 tbsp
Salt to taste
Lemon juice-of 3 to 4 lemons
Hing   - 1 tsp
Add all and make a paste WITHOUT ADDING A DROP OF WATER ALSO!
Store in a dry jar.
You can have it chapati, dosa, idli , bread or anything you like!!


3)KEMPU CHUTNEY(RED CHUTNEY, ಕೆಂಪ ಚಟ್ನಿ ): This is my favorite in the house. The specialty of this chutney is it becomes sweeter as the days go! The ingredients are almost same as the green chutney.
Fresh red chillies - 200 gm, wash, wipe, cut and ROAST WITH LITTLE OIL till the chillies changes the colour
Garlic - 1 big bulb, peeled 
Curry leaves - 18 to 20 
Salt to taste
Jaggery - 1/4 cup
Cumin seeds - 1 tbsp
Tamarind - 1 medium lemon size
Oil -2 tbsp
Mix all the ingredients and paste it in to chutney. Adjust the taste.
It goes well with almost all Indian foods and even with bread and burgers!! 
You can use it in any gravy preparations also.
Try it only for you, not for kids!!!!


Hope all of you will enjoy my hottttttt chutney recipes.


And these chutneys are going to make every one dance in Ammu's   My First Event " Spicy Fiery Chutneys "




Can I say  "Keep Smiling", after you taste these chutneys!!!! 


Keep Smiling,
