Thai Sweet & Spicy Basil Crab

This is a Thai recipe which is a little sweet and quiet spicy. The basil adds a fresh twist to the dish. And the combination of all these flavours with the crab is absolutely finger-licking good. I know that eating crab tends to be a little messy. But then, it’s a very caveman-like feeling of satisfaction when you use your fingers to tear apart and dog into the crab meat.

Cauliflower 65

Cauliflower 65Cauliflower 65 is a variant of the Chicken 65 which is said to have originated in Chennai at the Buhari Hotel in 1965. Hence the 65 suffix. After a lot of research, I happen to source this original recipe which is devoid of any artificial food colouring.
 
Cauliflower 65 is a medium spicy preparation and I have used the light green non-spicy green chillies. Feel free to use the more spicer green chilli (Jwala) if you need more heat.

Prawn Balchao (Goan Spicy Prawn Pickle)

Balchao is a spicy seafood pickle from Goa. BalchaoWhile prawns are used most of the times, it is not uncommon to use other seafood like mussels, clams, lobster, seer fish, tuna and mackerel; amongst others.
 
Most people believe that the Balchao is extremely fiery. While this is true when it is tasted on the day f preparation; Balchao is a pickle and should be left for atleast a day before eating. An ideal time for resting would be a week. During this period, the marinade soaks into the seafood and the vinegar mellow the spice to a level which makes this dish very desireable.
