Non Veg Dishes Sea on my table

Karimeen fry/Pearlspot fry.The easiest recipe ever.

the easiest fish fry recipe…

A scene from my north Malabar home at 11.30 am.

Meen Kittiya? (Did you get some fresh fish for lunch?) _ A usual dialogue in the household repeated every afternoon .

Karimeen /Pearlspot fry. An absolute favorite of seafoodies!

The mother or the person responsible for kitchen eagerly waits for the fish delivery like a daily ritual. Without fish, how can our staple diet of rice, veggies, fish curry/fry be complete? We coastal people are absolutely in love with seafood and we are seriously committed to our relationship with it. We are ready to take those extra efforts of cleaning and cooking the fish at any cost.I was born and brought up in Payyanur, Kannur district ,Kerala. Marrying a defense officer had lead to spending my life in almost the entire country . I am grateful for the exposures to the food culture every state had offered me .I loved their regional cuisines and food cultures too. But fish and rice stayed with me like a forever love.

Food is not rational.Food is culture,habit,craving and identity.

Fish curry or fry is like a deep sentiment for me than just a dish. Have you noticed how strongly food memories influence our emotions?! My heart is like a slave to flavors. Good food can lift my spirit even from darkest moods. There is no better experience than a well cooked home meal. So here I am sharing the simplest fish fry recipe for the people who wants to fry fish quickly in their kitchen. I used pearlspot/karimeen in this recipe. But any fish can be cooked using the same recipe.

Hii, I'm Saritha who is finding it extremely difficult to write a paragraph about myself . I have already written few lines and deleted them too as some where i was sounding a bit underconfident or some times a bit too boasty. I don't like to be either of them as i believe that finding a balance between the above mentioned is the blissful state of mind which i always would prefer to be in.I am trying my best here to give you a clear idea about myself ;)
I belong to God's own country, Kerala and i am a big fan of the cuisine of the state . Professionally i'm a mentor of young minds . As i am married to an Indian air force Pilot, i had been living in various parts of the country. I would love to call myself and my hubby as avid travellers as that's one thing which thrills me and lifts up my mood drastically from 'being balanced yet a little boring ' to 'extremely enthusisatic'.I have two sons (a deadly combination to handle) Aditya 13 and Aarush 7 who are choosy in eating like most of the kids. I love my travels and it gives me amble exposure to taste various cuisines within and outside the country. Socializing and parties have always been a part of our Airforce life and who would not like to see the smile on your guest's face after tasting your food. That's how i started cooking and tasting and experimenting.I had seen he days where i found" breaking an egg without creating a mess" as my life's biggest challenge.(lol ;) ).But past few years in cooking has made me realise that it isn't Rocket science.
List of people who can make use of my blog
1. Newly married brides who are struggling with masalas and utensils.
2. Any one who wants to try out something new and exceptional . ( i knw i knw, here i'm a littlt boasty)
3.Bachelor / forced bachelor boys who has developed acidity due to over indulgence in restaurants .Now it's time to cook a meal for yourselves guys. As i said, it's not rocket science.
4. Any one who loves me . Muah....
Go Ahead.... Try out my recipes and Enjoyyyy....
