mutton kabab, an instant kabab made using keema of lamb or meat, made as tikki and deep fried which are similar to mutton kofta.
It is also similar to shami kabab using lamb meat but the only difference is these are fried without cooking the meat.
It can also be spelled as mutton kebab or common name is keema ke kabab.
What are kababs?
Kababs are basically cooked in barbecue methods by using chunks of chicken or mutton and then inserted into the skewers or sticks and cooked using barbecue method.
This way of making kababs is easily done in restaurants or is a coomon sight on road side in India.
The meat or chicken is marinated using various spices and herbs are then placed in tandoori for at least 30 to 40 minutes to get the perfect juicy texture or flavor.
How to make these keema kabab?
Kababs can be made in several ways and the kebab making has been a popular way of cooking non vegetarian food since ages not only in India but all across the world and are highly popular in middle eastern countries and Pakistan as well.
Here, I am making the kababs in a very unique way as I would be deep frying the keema kabab and not placing them in tandoor or barbecue.
The mutton should first be minced well or ground meat is readily available in meat selling stores and can be availed easily.
The keema is mixed with various spices and herbs and to bind well egg is added so that the kebab do not break while frying.
The recipe is quick, instant and can be made easily which is a great starter recipe.
It is similar to the shami kebab procedure but they are made in the form of cutlet or tikki using cooked meat.
The only difference here is I will be making using raw keema and besan whereas shami is cooked along with bengal gram and made into coarse paste before making it into a tikki.
How to use meat to make this recipe:
Ingredients required to make the recipe:
The minced meat is mixed with dry spices such as salt, red chili powder, turmeric powder, ginger garlic paste, whole spice powder, black pepper powder, coriander powder, cumin powder, herbs such as coriander leaves, onions and mainly ingredients for binding and holding the meat together is egg white as well as besan or chick pea flour.
Tips to make a perfect recipe:
The meat mixture should be mixed in egg white before making tikki to deep fry. If not done the meat does not bind well and and tends to break completely while deep frying and ruins the complete dish.
Wash the meat or keema well and let it strain until the water completely drains from the minced meat.
Mutton should always be fresh and tender to make this recipe and it tastes best if made using lamb meat as lamb is a tender meat and tastes good too as the kababs are fried raw.
This is a very simple and quick recipe but if looking forward to make healthy versions of meat recipe then one must not consume deep fried meat recipes and rather opt for steamed or baked meat which is completely fat free.

Tandoori chicken in oven or chicken tandoori oven baked is a delicious chicken delicacy baked in oven with marinated chicken.
There are many indian chicken varieties on the blog ranging from starters to curries to special rice recipes using chicken such as chicken pakora, palak chicken, dahi chicken, chicken do pyaza, chicken changezi, murgh makhani, chicken butter masala, chicken seekh kabab , chicken tikka , chicken pulao etc…
About Tandoori Chicken baked in the oven:
This is a perfectly restaurant style of a chicken recipe made by marinating the chicken with spices and yogurt.
The chicken used to make this recipe can be used as a whole or can be made by using just chicken leg quarters.
Here, I have used chicken leg quarters which is usually the quarter leg portion of the chicken.
The marination spice mixture is separately mixed with spices and yogurt and then coated to the whole chicken.
The chicken is then set to rest for 1 or 2 hours in the refrigerator in order to let all the spices absorb well and give a good taste to the chicken.
The marinated chicken should be cooked on both sides in the oven for at least an hour for it to cook well and become soft and juicy from inside.
This cooking which is done here in the oven can also be made without oven and I have already shared this recipe to make the tandoori chicken recipe without oven.
Ingredients that are required to make the chicken:
The spices that are used are basic and we just need to mix the spices with the yogurt and use any oil preferably mustard oil if making it in a traditional method.
If living abroad and finding spices in stores is difficult then do make use of tandoori chicken masala which is readily available in markets.
Just add salt and tandoori masala to yogurt and mix everything well and apply to the chicken and marinate for few hours before placing in the oven.
The adding of oil to the marinade is essential as it helps in holding all the spices and the masala to the chicken well.
Difficult or simple?
This is one simple and quick baked chicken recipe which is simple and can be made by anyone and not necessarily in oven.
Just take a heavy bottom pan , add little oil plus butter and heat it and then add the marinated chicken to the pot or pan and cook well on both sides and keep flipping either sides until they get cooked well and it takes about 45 minutes for it get cooked on pan on medium to low heat.
Best accompaniments to the chicken:
This recipe of tandoori chicken in oven is basically a starter dish and instead of using chicken leg quarters one can make use of chicken drumsticks as well to make this recipe.
It can also be served along with paratha recipes or roti recipes or can be accompanied as a fried dish to many main course recipes.
You can even enjoy it with parotta recipe which is a kerala style of making paratha which is normally eaten with curries but can even be tried with flat chicken starters along with other side dishes.

What is spanish omelette?
It is a very simple and easy omelette similar to the one made using eggs which are basically beaten well. It is then spread like an omelette and cooked well on both sides.
It is mainly made in Spain and is one of the popular recipes in those regions and is popularly known as ‘tortilla espanola‘ in Spanish.
The difference in making spanish style of omelette is mainly the use of potatoes which are finely sliced and stir fried a little before adding them to the omelette mixture. Once the potatoes are done well, they are mixed with omelet mix and made in the form of an omelette.
It is mainly the use of potatoes which makes the omelet a very special and delicious.
When and how to serve this omelet?
It is mainly served as a breakfast recipe because it has all the ingredients that actually make a good breakfast.
It tastes best if eaten plain or can be eaten with any flat breads or have it as a snack by dipping it with some ketchup.
Different ways of making it?
Here, in this omelette, I am making it by adding some spices and herbs to the omelet mixture and just using stir fried potato slices in the mix.
But, there are several ways to make this omelette and to make variations to it such as adding cheese to make the omelette more cheesy and this can be easily done by just adding some grated cheese into the omelet mix along with potatoes and eggs.
But since we mainly use potatoes to make the omelet, it can be called as Potato Omelet as well.
Healthy way of making this omelette:
We all are familiar with the health benefits of Eggs but if one is looking forward to make it in a healthy way, there are few things that should be kept in mind while making it.
Health benefits of Eggs:
Eggs are quite healthy and should be included regularly in diet. They are a good source of Vitamin A and should be mainly eaten as boiled for more benefits and the white part of the egg is even more healthier than the yellow one.
Difficulty level of making the Omelet?
The omelette takes just few minutes to get perfectly cooked once the potatoes are done and it takes approx… 15 minutes for perfectly stir fried potato. Then the rest of the procedure is as easy as the basic omelette method.
Two important points to cook potatoes/aloo:
Here, I have just added salt, turmeric and a tablespoon of chopped onions to cook the potatoes. But it can be cooked in many other ways ranging from light to spicy such as I have already mentioned one way of potato fry on my blog, which is stir fried by adding some more dry spices.

Chicken shahi korma, a delicious creamy korma recipe, made using rich ingredients such as nuts and yogurt which are cooked with chicken.
What is Shahi?
Shahi is the term used to describe “Royalty”. In the Mughal Era, some of the chicken recipes which were made were said to be very royal, rich and had a mughlai or nawabi touch to them.
I have many various korma kind of recipes on the blog but this is one of the best ways of making korma as it is a very rich way of making the chicken curry by using some of the rich ingredients such as nuts and yogurt.
Chicken curries or gravy recipes:
I have already shared many chicken recipes which are in the form of curry or gravy or korma and some of them are chicken gravy, chicken masala, chicken kurma, kadai chicken, murgh makhani, chicken butter masala , chicken changezi, chicken rezala which are all rich gravies which mainly have kaju or cashew nuts used while cooking them.
There are plain chicken curries without rich ingredients used and they are palak chicken, dahi chicken, chicken curry indian style , chicken do pyaza which are made without using any rich ingredients and nuts.
How to make this shahi chicken:
To make this chicken recipe, the chicken is first marinated with yogurt and spices which is then cooked by adding the paste of dry fruits that is nuts such as almonds, cashew nuts and then using fried onions.
All these ingredients used makes the gravy a rich and excellent taste which has both flavor and aroma because of the spices used in the curry.
Ingredients used to make the chicken shahi korma:
Chicken: The chicken which is used here is a normal chicken and it tastes best if chicken is not boneless.
Almonds: These are basically called as badam and they taste amazing if added as a paste in curries be it vegetarian or non vegetarian curries. Usually shahi curries have these nuts as a must ingredient to enhance the taste of the gravy.
Cashew nuts: All the rich and shahi gravies are incomplete without using these and are basically called as kaju and taste rich if added in korma recipes and they make the gravy quite heavy, creamy and nawabi.
Yogurt: Every korma recipe usually made has to use yogurt or curd or dahi to balance the sweetness of the curries and the flavor of the whole gravy too tastes good if it is added. Without yogurt, the korma does not give the gravy its taste that actually is needed.
Fried onions: The next most important ingredient is the fried onions, which should be fried separately and added in the end by crushing them or can be added by making a paste of them. Here, I have crushed and added them in the end.
These are the four main ingredients excluding chicken which form the main base to a get a shahi gravy.
Other ingredients to be added are the spices which are important too such as coriander powder and ginger garlic paste (I always prefer home made one as it gives a fresh taste), herbs which are a must to make the gravy very special and suitable to be eaten with rice recipes such as pulao recipe or bagara rice.
I have not used whole spices in the beginning of the recipe as it would make the korma too spicy and since I wanted to balance the spice flavor, I have just added garam masala powder. If required whole spices such as cloves, cardamoms, bay leaf can be added before adding marinated chicken into the oil.
Chicken is one of the highly used ingredient to make non veg dishes apart from mutton recipes and fish and the chicken can be used to make thousands of varieties ranging from starters to main course meals to various snacks as well.
I have added many recipes of chicken on my blog and I would be glad enough to add many more of them as I keep updating my blog.
This gravy tastes best with flat breads such as naan, rumali roti or recipes such as parotta, which is already shared on my blog but it can be served with special rice recipes too such as veg pulao or with plain steamed rice.
Check out the detailed recipe below which is step by step and also has a video procedure too…

What is this recipe about?
It is a deep fried snack recipe made using besan or chick pea flour but using more of shredded onions and making an onion besan batter using besan and spices.
The batter is divided into small portions and dropped into oil and fried to get crispy golden pakoras.
It is a very popular snack item during the monsoon season and during winters and it is loved by each and every Indian who loves snacks.
It is not only a popular snack item in Maharashta but is quite popular all across India with different names.
Pakoras are usually termed as bajji, bhajiya or pakoda and in English language they are termed with name ‘Fritters’.
It is completely a vegetarian recipe and one needs just few ingredients to make it and can be be made in very little time without struggling hard to have all the ingredients.
The main ingredients however are the pyaz as they are usually called for onions in Hindi language and it is a must try snack recipe during the rains.
What are the ingredients to make the kanda bajji?
To make this recipe, we need the below ingredients:
Onions: In order to make the batter for kanda bhaji, we require good amount of onions that are shredded finely. The pakoda recipe is mainly made by using more onions and less of besan/ chickpea flour and another popular breakfast snack made using onions is kanda poha which is a must try Maharashtrian dish….
Besan/ chickepea flour: The onions cannot be fried without binding them well. In order to have a good binding we need to mix the onions along with besan. This not only binds well but gives good texture, taste and aroma. Other such recipes that require besan to make pakoda recipes are onion pakoda, aloo pakoda and methi pakoda, palak pakoda etc…
Other ingredients: To make it more flavorful basic spices such as salt, red chilli powder, curry leavas, coriander leaves or hara dhaniya is added to lift up the flavors of the pakoda.
This kanda bhaji while mixing should not use any water.
Tips for making the perfect kanda bhajiya:
Options for healthy way of making the pakoda:
Here, I have used vegetable oil for frying but to make it a bit more healthy one can opt for olive oil or other types of oil such as canola to deep fry them.

The recipe is a simple deep fried fritter and best as a snack item during the evenings or as a light snack for the kids, young and adults who look forward to have something light and hot during the evenings and during the cold weather.

Masala fish gravy, a special kind of fish gravy made by using onions and tomatoes as the base of the curry along with tamarind pulp and coconut.
How to make this curry?
This is a curry and not a deep fried fish recipe and it has all the ingredients that are required in making a fish curry.
This is mainly made by making a gravy base and adding different spices which a delicious gravy.
The masala to make this fish recipe also uses coconut paste or coconut milk that is added to give more of a south indian touch to the gravy.
The fish recipe or any fish curry is incomplete without adding tamarind pulp and this recipe uses the tangy flavors as well to make this delicious curry.
Other non veg recipes:
Which fish to be used to make the fish curries?
To make fish curries or gravy recipes it is better to opt for healthy fish recipes which has good omega 3 fatty acids as it is quite healthy and do not use fish which has lots of thorns as they might get mixed into the curry and create trouble while eating.
Fish thorns are basically called as “Kaata” which a lot of fishes do consist of and are harmful if get stuck inside the throat.
Therefore, while buying fish make sure a good fish with less bones or thorns is bought.
To make fish fries either boneless or with less thorns can be preferred but be careful while eating fish as the thorns cause danger while eating.
In India there many varieties of fishes available such as Mackerel, Rohu, Hilsa, Surmai, Pomfret and many more endless species are available in India.
Pomfret is one of the fishes that can be fried whole or baked or steamed as a whole fish.
Other masala recipes with lots of gravy that should be tried are masala baingan, masala chicken, gutti vankaya, paneer tikka masala, paneer butter masala, mirchi ka salan and do try another masala recipe that is masala omelette etc…
Ingredients that are used to make this Masala Fish:
Fish: Here, In this recipe I am using Salmon fish which is totally boneless but any kind of fish which is cut into good oval shape can be used.
Spices: Basic spices are definitely used even here but it is mandatory to use coriander powder and cumin powder as it is an incomplete fish recipe without those two powders. Homemade powders such as ginger garlic paste taste even more better and flavorful..
Tempering: This recipe uses cumin, mustard, chillies, curry leaves which bring an aromatic flavor and good fragrance to a fish recipe.
Paste used: Here, I have made a thin coconut milk like paste by blending few coconut pieces and water together to make a very thin running consistency paste using coconut. Here, fresh coconut or desiccated coconut can be used to make the milk.
Usually, ready made coconut milk is easily available in super markets which can be bought and directly added into the curry.
Tamarind pulp or Imli: To give a tangy touch, just take half a lemon size tamarind and soak it in water for few minutes or microwave it to soften the tamarind.. Extract the pulp out which should be approximately around 1 cup.
Onions and tomtoes: Here, the recipe is made by adding chopped onions and chopped tomatoes and cooking the gravy. If one wishes to make a paste and cook the gravy it can be done. The main base of this masala fish gravy is created by onions, tomatoes, coconut milk and tamarind altogether combined well and cooked.
While boiling adding few curry leaves gives an aromatic fragrance to the whole curry.
What should be served?
The best meal to be served with this curry is hot steamed rice and the curry itself.
Rice and fish combined makes an interesting combination.
The fish can be eaten with roti but tastes best with white rice.
Below are the recipe details to make the fish gravy and hope to update a video procedure too for the recipe to be understood practically.
