MANGALORE PRAWN CURRY / YETTI GASSI

Nostalgia : A sentiment or a wistful yearning for the happiness felt in a former time ,place or situation.

Nostalgia is always connected deeply to food memories…atleast in my case. Every dish I cook on a special day or in a special mood definitely has some emotions behind it. I did my graduation from St’Agnes college, Mangalore. So many beautiful memories are still alive and kicking in my mind around Mangalore.The carnivorous me was unlucky to be living in a vegetarian hostel. So every Sunday was looked forward for that restaurant visit to relish the non vegetarian delicacies I was missing throughout the week. Mangalore Prawn curry was one of those favorites of mine. I could order it only on Sunday with a full pocket money status. Today I am cooking Yetti Gassi for lunch and my mind is wondering around the giggles and innocence of my friends. I am so glad that many of us are living in the same city now and are able to get together once in a while.

Karimeen fry/Pearlspot fry.The easiest recipe ever.

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.

Recipe for Karimeen fry

Ingradients

karimeen or any fish fillet : 2 pieces

shallots : 6 nos

Being an Air force officer’s wife,I am pretty much used to presenting a decent layout of dishes on the dinner table in short notice. 16 years of my social life in Defense  has given me this confidence . My husband’s course mates from NDA , Colleagues, UNIT types, Station types and my own girl’s circle has given me ample opportunities to celebrate, enjoy good food and  great company. Love them all!
Like most of my Sundays, even today my hubby , in a relaxed tone, told me about the guest who will be reaching my home for lunch in just an hour and a half . I had already made some vegetarian lunch for my family. But that won’t be enough to welcome my guest warmly. So here I am scanning through my refrigerator to get a clue of what to cook !
Voila!!! I have some chicken in my freezer , grated coconut and a bunch of mint leaves . So I decided to cook up all these together with a little more spices. … I have seen some recipes of mint chicken in the net, but decided to cook up something unique . The dish turned out to be finger licking!Happy me!!!
