Eid Mubaarak to all my readers.Finally after a long time I had got one holiday.The last holiday I got was in May for may day.I was tired and the eid holiday gave a so long cherished long weekend..Now I can happily blog :). I was so sick and tired of going to office and working everyday.The work pressure was so high and I was literally longing for a holiday.Last week was my dear hubby's birthday.Every birthday is special but this year the love of my life was turning 30! So I was excited and wanted to gift him something I never did before.I was inspired by the beautiful cakes made by my fellow bloggers and tried to give it a try! I always loved to bake tea cakes but I never made a cake with proper icing before.It is difficult to get whip cream in Bangalore which always discouraged me from making icing. So I decided to for a chocolate ganache cake with the easily available ingredients.Yet there is no compromise with the taste of the cake.Here goes the recipe.

Chicken Korma

Chicken Korma
My father had just recovered from a bad flu and still he is very weak.The report said he has got a low platelets count and doctor has advised him to eat dry fruits.So I was going through the new recipe book of mine 660 curries by Raghavendra Iyer for a chicken recipe with dry fruit and I was stuck at the page - 130
which said Razia Syed's Chicken with an almond yogurt sauce(Murghi Korma).I fell in love with it at the first sight.Normally Mughlai cuisines are famous with lots of cream,butter and rich staffs.This recipe has used simple ingredients with a life saving almonds and still so authentic and tasty.It leaves the gravy super tasty and rich without using any unhealthy ingredients. I made this dish with some changes.As I understood that the measurements and ingredients are mostly as per american standard.So I just indianized it with some changes.Instead of canola oil I have used mustard oil and also I have used normal turmeric and chilly powder to get some color.So here goes the recipe.
Note : After making this dish I understood that this same dish can be made with paneer/potato or cauliflower instead of chicken.So my vegetarian friends can also try this out and let me know the result.

This dish does not need any introduction in India.Any Punjabi/North Indian or Mughlai restaurant would serve this dish.The rich texture is surely not for the heart patients or the people who are in diet.The combination of cheese,butter and cream will surely take you to heaven with every bite of it! So don't think and loose yourself in this buttery creamy gravyMy friends and family love this dish prepared by me.So I am sharing my way of doing this.

Chicken Chaap

I am first introduced with the concept of having biriyani with raita in Bangalore.Back home in Kolkata I just could not imagine biriyani without chicken chaap. It used to be like an indispensable part with Biriyani like bread and butter like biriyani and chicken chaap. All the mughlai restaurants in kolkata like Aminia,Siraj,Nizam,Royal would serve this dish.My personal favorite among them was Royal's chicken chaap.The creamy gravy with rich aroma of the whole spices make this dish truly awesome.This is how I prepare this recipe at home which is quite popular among my family members.
