Lemon Thyme Cilantro Chicken

Lemon Thyme Cilantro Chicken

Sounds like my opening line these days are, “It’s been a while..” We are couple of weeks into the summer and it has flown by. And I have loved every second of it. Wet summer I would say but who is complaining? I really haven’t paid much attention to food blogging lately and then yesterday I sat down and clicked through some of my favorite food blogs …and realized, I really like this ‘food’ thing, you know? I mean, I still do. I like talking about it and writing about it 🙂 This particular dish I made couple of weeks back. Last minute decision. Original recipe requires to marinade the chicken for hours/overnight. Also original recipe is primarily ‘lemon thyme’ chicken. I added my favorite herb, cilantro. I think cilantro makes everything better (despite of many claiming that it tastes like soap, really? how do you know? .I also added ‘Rojo Recado’. I am a big fan of this Mayan spice mix. I blended this couple of weeks back and it...

chilaquiles

chilaquiles

What do you do with leftover roasted chicken? Tacos, enchilada, Chalupas, Taco bowl, Casserole, burritos are some of my go to routine with leftover chicken. I remembered the taste of Chilaquilles  at my friend’s home.  I had tried making it once before in short cut way. So I tried to do it again, this time going all out way. Chilaquilles (Chila-Kee-les).It’s a mouthful to say, Isn’t it?   What I know about ‘Chilaquiles’ It is  very popular breakfast in Mexico, using day old  leftover tortilla. Fried tortilla chips are smothered in freshly made salsa. Served with Fried eggs, crumbly queso fresco and Mexican Crema on top. My husband is not a fan of eggs with tortilla in any form. You can leave the eggs out completely.I stayed with meal version for our dinner. I hardly ever fry things. So I had trial short cut run before with tortilla chips. It works but the taste is vastly different when you do fry your own tortilla. Traditionally, day old stale  dry tortillas are...

Spaghetti Squash with meatballs

Spaghetti Squash with meatballs

It has been a while since I have cooked something and blogged about it. Blaming it on cold around here, I have been slacking with cooking and  photography. Yesterday was another full day. On the busy day like that, we often have easy meal. Spaghetti with meat ball belongs to that category.I added little bit of twist to make it even more easier and bit healthier for us.I have been meaning to use spaghetti squash for quite some time instead of pasta but we are not squash fan around here, so I was reluctant. I was very skeptical at the dinner table at first but it turned out to be a pleasant surprise. My husband liked the change. My kids ate the meatballs not a fan of spaghetti yet .I personally liked it better than pasta. It is lighter, softer and sweeter than pasta. We are not going to give up on pasta but we have this version in rotation now.Give it a try, you may be surprised. PrintSpaghetti...

Chicken Tikka Masala

Chicken Tikka Masala

What is one of the popular Indian dish here among the American? When i ask this question,more then often i hear Chicken Tikka Masala among other dishes in the list.My husband is no exception to this .He loves it with Shrimp Biryani.So i made it  for our Christmas Eve dinner.Kept it very less spicy so my kids can eat. I was not aware of the popularity of this dish growing up but then there are so many yummy dishes out there,i don’t know about.I have a feeling the mild rich taste of the aromatic chicken makes it appetizing. ‘Tikka’ in Hindi means ‘Patties’ and ‘Masala’ is ‘Spices’.So basically chunks of boneless chicken cooked in thick tomato and cream based spiced gravy.I have made this couple of times at home and i will admit,i have not been able to replicate the  smoky flavor of the chicken,i find at restaurant..Something to keep working on.I have often broiled it or grilled the marinade chicken cubes.Regardless,it has been well liked and devoured. It...

Chtit’ha Djedj(Algerian Chicken with chickpeas)

Chtit’ha Djedj(Algerian Chicken with chickpeas)

As we are at the tail end of our trip to Algeria, I wanted to share some more about Lilias Trotter, since we started in my last post. I have yet to read the biography of Lilias Trotter. Followings are what I have gathered after reading Noel Piper’s book, “Faithful Women and their Extraordinary God”. I am encouraged by Lilias Trotter’s  Determination  Lilias Trotter sailed to Algiers for the first time in 1888 with her two friends. She was 35 years old at that time. She was frail and had heart damage. She knew nothing about the language, culture and people of the land she was ready to venture into, yet she was determined. “The power of talking can only come by being among the people-but time will shew God’s plan.” she says when she was learning Arabic. Resourcefulness Before Lilias Trotter learnt Arabic, she used French, which many Arab men knew (with the history of French rule) to reach them with gospel. To reach women and girls, she...

Coconut Shrimp Curry

Coconut Shrimp Curry

Shrimp or prawn? Terminology is confusing to me.I don’t know what’s the precise scientific difference is.To me, prawns are bigger size shrimps. I don’t see any recognizable difference when served on the plate.What i knew it as Prawns in India,is shrimp in US in my mind! I didn’t grow up eating prawns. It was not available to us where we lived easily. However I have come to like it.My first and the most delicious memory of eating prawns is at my roommate’s home. When I was finishing my studies in South, it was not possible for me to go back to home up north in long weekend (Think almost 2 days).So I traveled to my friend’s house, in a coastal city. I remember the taste, color and texture to this day; I have not come close to tasting a prawn dish as delicious. Thought of it is salivating.  I followed the recipe from ‘around the world cookbook’. I dry roasted certain ingredients as the book says.I also adding rest...
