How to completely Blend the cream cheese !


For best results, make sure the cream cheese and sugar are completely blended, free of lumps and smooth, before adding any other ingredients. If the cream cheese is too cold, it will not blend easily. To easily soften the cream cheese, place completely unwrapped packages of cream cheese in a microwaveable bowl. Microwave on HIGH 30 sec. or just until softened.

😛(Recipes)💎Indian Tradition Madras chicken curry Recipes .🍗😊😊

🤗Welcome back in my recipe Madras chicken curry.😛😋

It’s an extraordinary combination of flavors with a subtle kick from peppercorns & chilies.

This curry can be made as hot as you like. We’re using madras hot curry powder for the heat, but you can add in more heat with fresh chillies, or less heat by swapping out the madras powder for regular medium or mild curry powder.

Spicy hot madras chicken curry 🍗😊😊

What is a Madras chicken curry ?🍗🍗😝

Madras sauce or Madras curry originates from the south of India, named after the city of Madras (now Chennai)Madras (now Chennai). Always red in color, Madras is typically a hot curryThis is a fairly spicy madras curry. If you like it spicer, add an extra hot red chili powder to taste.

What I love about this Quick and Easy Chicken Madras is that it has a rich, depth of flavor that tastes like it cooked for hours. The garam masala that is the spice base and main flavor for the dish is mild and slightly sweet.

usually make this chicken madras curry in my instant pot (mainly for the convenience of pressure cooking), but if the pot is otherwise engaged, I use a deep, heavy-bottomed pan on the stovetop. Both methods are discussed below.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup ghee or oil
1 cup chopped red onion about half a large onion
½ cup chopped cilantro
5-6 cloves garlic minced
3 tablespoons fresh grated ginger
30 ounces diced tomatoes 2 – 15 ounce cans
15 ounces unsweetened coconut milk
2 tablespoons Madras curry powder
1 tablespoon garam masala .


1 teaspoon salt.
¼ – ½ teaspoon Kashmiri chili powder or cayenne .
1 ½ – 2 pounds boneless chicken thighs .
1 tablespoon lemon juice.

Spicy &hot madras chicken curry 🍗🍗😛

How to make:

Step 1 – Turn on the instant pot to sauté (normal) and add the oil to the steel insert. Wait for the display to show HOT, then add the dry red chillies, cardamom pods and cloves.

Step 2 – When the spices start sizzling (a few seconds), add the onions and fry until they the just begin to brown. There is no need to caramelize them completely. Do stir them now and then to prevent uneven browning. This should take about 5 minutes.

Step 3 – Add the powdered spices and salt and stir rapidly for a few seconds. Add a couple tablespoons water immediately if you find the spices sticking to the bottom. You can even turn off the pot for a few seconds at this point and turn it on again when you are adding the rest of the ingredients. The heat that is built up already is enough to roast the spices.

Step 4 – Stir in the minced ginger and garlic and sauté for 2 minutes. As before, if the masala is sticking to the pan, loosen it with a few splashes of water.

Step 5 – Add the tomato puree, lemon juice and sugar. Mix everything well.

Step 6 – Slide in the chicken pieces and 1.5 to 2 cups water. Deglaze the pot and close the lid. Pressure cook for 7 minutes on high. Once the timer beeps, do a pressure release after 10 minutes.

Step 7 – Open the pot and sprinkle the kasuri methi (fenugreek leaves). Serve hot with naan or rice.

Served with rice and salads 😋

SPICES
Spices are the life and soul of any self-respecting curry and are responsible for the deep flavor profile of most Indian food. The right spices added in the right proportions (less is more) can really elevate a dish beyond ‘good’ to ‘freaking awesome’! Here’s what goes into this chicken madras recipe:

How is Madras curry powder different from another curry powder ?🤔

Some say that this, along with regular curry powder is a British invention and has nothing to do with authentic Indian food. This is not completely true as the whole spices used to make curry powder are distinctly Indian. So, how is Madras curry powder different from curry powder? Both have the same ingredients except that Madras curry powder is hotter with the addition of chilli peppers. Madras curry powder is a star spice in this recipe, so don’tthat this, along with regular curry powder is a British invention and has nothing to do with authentic Indian food. This is not completely true as the whole spices used to make curry powder are distinctly Indian. So, how is Madras curry powder different from curry powder? Both have the same ingredients except that Madras curry powder is hotter with the addition of chilli peppers. Madras curry powder is a star spice in this recipe, so don’t skip it.
1) Coriander powder – store-bought works fine, but if you really want your curry to vibrate with fresh flavors, use fresh coriander powder. How to make fresh coriander powder? Toast a tablespoon of coriander seeds in a small frypan over medium heat until the seeds start changing color and you can actually smell them. Turn off the heat, cool for a bit, then grind them in a dry spice grinder to a semi-fine powder. Of course, it all depends on the time you have. If you don’t have a lot, use pre-packaged coriander powder.
2) Cumin powder– just a little bit of cumin works wonders. Don’t go overboard with it as it can make the curry dark and taste overwhelming. Again, fresh is best (same method as the coriander above) but store-bought cumin powder works well too.
3) Chilli powder– if you don’t mind the heat, use cayenne but if too much spice is not your thing, use Kashmiri chilli powder. It adds a mild heat but lots of natural red color.
4) Turmeric powder – Indian food can’t really do without turmeric! Again, add a little bit only for warmth and color since there is some in the curry powder too.

Dried Fenugreek leaves( kasuri methi) – I can’t tell you how much depth a pinch or two of this herb adds to Indian curries. Restaurants use this in almost all their dishes and it adds a wonderful kick to gravy-based dishes. The trick is to add a little only as too much kasuri methi can ruin a perfectly good curry and make it bitter. Another thing to remember is to add it towards the end of the cooking cycle. This again prevents the food from turning bitter.

A hot & vibrant spicy Madras chicken curry 🍗😝

Chicken Madras is a hot and vibrant chicken curry that tastes so good with either naan or rice. Deeply flavoured with spices, this is one Indian curry you can’t miss!😊😊😄

Note
1) You can make madras chicken with boneless breast or thigh as well. Reduce the cooking time to 5 minutes for boneless chicken.
2) Don’t put more than 1/2 tsp kasuri methi and make sure to add it at the end, or the curry will turn bitter.

✨Onion Pakora (Spicy onion fritters)😋😋 Tea time snack.

When it’s rainy & cold, best thing to do 🤗☺☺

Onion pakora is a popular tea time snack made by deep-frying onion slices in a gluten-free and vegan chickpea flour batter.

Onion pakora 😋😋

When it is rainy or cold, the best thing to do is to warm up with a cup of chai and a plate of piping hot pakora. Pakora (also called pakoda, pakodi or bhajji) can be made with almost anything. Potatoes, onions, most vegetables, paneer, chicken and even bread pakoras are very popular. The binding agent is chickpea flour or besan which makes these onion pakora naturally gluten-free and vegan.



There are a couple of ways to make pakora.There is no dearth of tea time snacks in Indian cuisine. These snacks can be an entire cuisine category on their own. From the bhajjis and vadas of South India to pakore and chaat from North India, the sheer variety of Indian tea time snacks will astound you. Most of these snacks are easy to make with just a few pantry staples.

ONION PAKORA {SPICED ONION FRITTERS – VEGAN, GF} – HAPPY&HARRIEDThe process of making onion pakora starts by slicing and salting the onions and letting them sit for a while. This makes the onions let out water and makes it softer and more pliable. Then when you add the flour, you will need very little water and the pakora turns out super crunchy on the outside and perfectly cooked inside.

Sliced onions 😁

I have been experimenting with cooking pakoras in an air fryer too and it works. It tastes slightly different from the deep-fried version of course, but if you are watching your calories, it is a good option. Just remember to spread out the onion fritters thinly when placing the batter in the air fryer bowl.

Ingredients :

Red onions – 2, medium-large
Salt – ½ tsp
Turmeric powder – ¼ tsp
Red chili powder – ½ – 1 tsp (as per taste)
Garam masala powder – ½ tsp
Green chilies – 2, finely chopped
Cilantro leaves – 1 tbsp, finely chopped
Chickpea flour – 1 cup, sifted
Rice flour – 2 tbsp, sifted
Water – as needed
Oil – for deep-frying

How to make :

Using your hands, mix them together, separating the onion slices with your fingers. Rest for at least 15 minutes to let the onions soften.
Add chickpea flour and rice flour to the onions and mix well. Add water, a little at a time, to make a thick batter. Taste and adjust seasoning.
Heat oil in a large, deep pan. Drop spoonfuls of batter into the hot oil. Fry pakora in medium heat, flipping them over to cook on all sides. Remove with a slotted spoon and place on paper towels to absorb excess oil.

Onion pakora (spicy onion fritter) served with hot chutney 😋😘

A good pakora needs a good condiment to go with it. Ketchup is always a crowd favorite, but I also like to make a tangy green chutney to go with it.

Onion pakora are also great as a side for a traditional Indian meal, I especially love pakora with rice and dal curry. If you have never tried it, you definitely should.

Restaurants Style Homemade Paneer (cheese cube)Masala(Spicy) Tikka.😋😋😋

The best homemade paneer tikka masala recipe you’ll ever taste! It’s one of the popular restaurant style paneer recipes.

Paneer tikka is made with marinated paneer cubes, onions, and colorful peppers. After soaking up the flavors of the marinade, they are baked into the oven or grilled on the stovetop. Let’s go one step further and make delicious, flavorful, creamy Punjabi gravy masala. Then grilled tikka are added into the gravy and the dish called paneer tikka masala.



This simple paneer tikka masala is packed with flavor. Pan fry pieces of paneer until golden brown and then bathe them in a rich tomato sauce. The paneer tikka masala is so good that you’ll want to lick the bowl!

Paneer Tikka Masala Recipe – a simple vegetarian weeknight meal!



Now that tomatoes are in season, I want to cook with them all the time. They have robust flavor and add a lovely hue to your dishes. One of my favorite things to cook with tomatoes is chicken tikka masala. “Tikka” in Indian cuisine refers to pieces of meat or vegetables marinated in spices. “Masala” refers to blends of spices in paste or powder form. Chicken tikka masala, then, is a dish of cooked marinated chicken pieces that’s bathed in a rich tomato sauce.

In this recipe, I make a vegetarian version using paneer instead of chicken. Although I use a number of spices in this paneer tikka masala recipe, it is simple to cook. The paneer has a lovely flavorful crust on the outside, and it pair so well with the masala sauce.

Served with some veggies capsicum, onions and hot chutney 😋

Ingredients:


Serves 2 people
Preparation Time – 4 to 5 hours or overnight
Grilling time – 20 – 30 minutes
Paneer – 150 grams (I used milky-mist paneer)
Capsicum – 1 (Big one)
Tomato – 2
Ginger-Garlic paste – 1 teaspoon
Thick curd / Yogurt – 1 cup (125 grams)
Tandoori masala powder – 2 teaspoons (Click here for home-made tandoori powder recipe)
Red chilli powder – 2 teaspoons
Salt – As per taste (less than 2 teaspoons)
Lemon juice – 2 teaspoons (Plus extra for drizzling)
Chat Masala – As required
Kasoori Methi / Dry Fenugreek leaves – 1 teaspoon
Oil – 1 teaspoon + As required (preferably mustard oil or sunflower oil)
Extras that you’ll need
Metal Skewers / Bamboo Skewers – 3 or 4
Baking tray
Aluminium foil (wrapper paper)
Brush

Preparation mathod:


Take a cup of thick curd and hang it on a muslin cloth for 30 minutes. This helps to remove excess water.
Take this thick curd in a bowl and add red chilli powder, tandoori masala powder, salt, ginger garlic paste, kasoori methi, 2 tsp lemon juice, 1 tsp oil and mix well. (If your mixture is runny add a teaspoon of besan flour or corn flour)
Set the above curd marinade aside.
Take paneer and wash in water (I used store bought paneer), then soak it in warm water for 2 minutes, remove from water and pat dry using a tissue. Now chop into squares or rectangular cubes and set aside.
Wash tomatoes and capsicum well in water and pat dry it. Chop the tomatoes into four halves, then using a knife chop off the ends so that it resembles a square. Slice off the seeds using knife and set aside. (Use the seed part for chutneys or making gravies; check the pic below to know how I sliced tomatoes into squares)

Similarly chop capsicum into halves and remove the seed part in the center and discard it. Chop into squares and set aside.
Peel onion and chop off the ends, then cut onion into four halves, you will get the square shape already!
Now mix the paneer, capsicum, onion and tomato pieces in the curd marinade. Mix gently with your fingers and see that the marinade gets spread on all the pieces well. Do not do this by force else the paneer pieces will break easily.
marinate paneer and veggies
After this set the marinated mix in refrigerator (not freezer) for 4 to 5 hours or overnight. I let the marinade undisturbed overnight, this makes the paneer really very flavvorful.
Remove from the refrigerator the following day or after 4 or 5 hours and set aside until it reaches room temperature.

Meanwhile line the baking tray with an aluminium foil and set aside.
Preheat oven (OTG) at 200° C (app. 400 degree Fahrenheit) for 10 minutes on grill mode. (i.e. heat the top rods alone)
Now insert the marinated vegetable and paneer pieces alternatively into the skewers carefully. Do not pack very tight. (If using bamboo skewers, soak the skewers in cold water for 10 to 15 minutes before use to avoid burning)
Now spread some oil over the packed skewers using a brush. (you wont be able to brush the oil smoothly just spread it across with the help of the brush, if you apply by force the marinade will come off, so be gentle while applying oil. do not pour too much oil)
When done place the skewers on the baking tray and place on the top rack inside the oven.
pack in skewers
Grill for 10 minutes (same mode, 200° C) then open and remove the tray using oven mitts or gloves. Turn the skewers carefully and brush some oil on this side.
Grill this side for another 10 minutes. Remove again and change sides grill for another 5 minutes.
Check if the paneer has got cooked, the onion, tomato and capsicum pieces will have shrunk by now.
Now remove from Oven (OTG). I wanted a more smoky flavor, just like the ones we get from a paneer tikka cooked in tandoor, so I showed the skewers over direct flame (high flame) for a few seconds using my gas stove. It gave a nice smoky punch and burnt effect to the tikkas. Do not show for long, else paneer will become over-burnt and rubbery.

Transfer the skewers to a serving plate and drizzle lemon juice over it. Sprinkle chat masala.
Serve along with some sliced onions and mint chutney!!
