As you know malayalee sadhya is not complete without payasam/dessert served towards the end feast.Ragi semiya caramel payasam is enticing and luscious milk and caramel sugar payasam.

Ragi or finger millet is famous for its nutritional value,it is high in iron and calcium and a good source of fiber. My mom and grandmother always made sure to incorporate ragi to our diet on a weekly basis. My favorite was ragi halwa and ragi puttu. But looking into my blog,I realized that I have rarely posted anything with ragi. Finger millet/ragi is very healthy and if you are looking for some healthy options,try incorporating it in your diet.Thi…

Today's recipe is a spicy potato masala/urulakizhangu masala that I often make as a side dish for chapathi. But this is also an integral part of Kerala Sadhya. This Sunday malayalees around the world will be celebrating Vishu/ Kerala New year. So this is the perfect time to share some Sadhya recipes.

Pepper Prawns Fry

Pepper Prawns Fry
Deep fried spicy and salty prawns is irresistible and one of my favorite ways to eat prawns. This crispy fry will be a perfect treat for your family. Pepper Prawns fry is crispy fried prawns with exciting flavors of garlic,butter,zesty lemon and kick of pepper.It is my take to butter garlic shrimp,but a little spicy.This recipe is so versatile and easy to prepare.

If you get fresh prawns try frying it head on, it has an irresistible delicate crispness to it, juicy and equally tasty.Thanks to hubby who convinced me that the head is the most flavorful part of prawns...so true.If you are not a fan of the head,no worries, it is still tasty and irresistible.

The spicy marinade has black pepper,roasted bell pepper and bird eye chili. Bird eye chili is  hot spicy one,if you cannot handle the heat you can skip it or substitute with a less spicy one.Roasting pepper enhances the flavor and bird eye chili and black pepper contributes a little heat which is the key to this reci…
