Everyone knows Prawn Balchão as a main course. It is actually more like a pickle! In the days prior to refrigeration, prawns (and sometimes pork) would be left to marinate in a vinegar-based sweet and sour tomato-chilli sauce. Here, the Balchão would be left for days to marinate without reheating.
This is a yummy Chinese main course recipe using the yummy pok choy. The vegetable is stir-fried and then a yummy spiced black bean sauce is mixed in. The topping of the dish with cashewnuts adds a nice crunch to the dish.
Being made from whole wheat flour, Chapattis are a better health choice to have as a ‘bread’ than the commercial sliced breads. Often, it can be a little boring to have chapattis daily; and I recommend jazzing this humble dish up by adding vegetable pulps/juices when preparing the dough.
While I love meat in my biryani, making this dish with fish makes me wonder why I never relished a lot of it beforspicee. The recipe used is from Kerala and he flavour of the local spices is evident in every spoonful of this delicious biryani.
