Kadak Pao & Tomat Salad 😍 makes a Mouth Watering Goan Snack! 😋
I have grown up detesting the usual "faintly brown, sugary, milky, barely flavoured with instant coffee, like you are colouring the milk not flavouring it" kind of coffee, not the the fresh brew that fuels a big portion of population in Southern India. This is how I now know filter kaapi: * I had my first brush with it about 5 years ago, when we first moved to Bengaluru. And I had tears of joy with my very first cup (not davara, but more on that later ) to know that it didn't taste like milk! 😂😂 * After a few months and lots of YouTube videos, I bought my first filter and a pack of filter coffee grounds! 😍 I remember it was a maroon colored pack of Bru Select ( it's Cothas now ). * In another few months, I converted ( coerced, that is ) N into drinking filter coffee every weekend afternoon. He officially maintains that he enjoys it, till date. 😉 * Slowly, it is how every afternoon was spent on Saturdays and Sunday, either with a book or simply watching the ongoings in the neighbourhood, as seen above. See, initially, I thought, a davara full of filter coffee, isn't going to last long, but then, it's not about how many pages it will give you company for, because, filter coffee is just right only at a certain temperature. Not scalding hot but not lukewarm either, the ideal temperature is just in between, a few sipfuls long. So Davara scores big time over ceramic mugs for me. * Now I can actually make out the difference in taste of kaapi from various blends ( don't miss the tiny amount of pride in my voice here! 😍 ) * And finally, in an even more recent development, I finally know what a "thick decoction" means. I know it sounds silly, but decoction is not a decoction until it is "thick". I don't have any more words to correctly describe it, honestly because it's now like you just "know" it.
So, I am still no expert, because of course I haven't grown up drinking it, but that's my davara of filter kaapi as I know it. How do you know yours? 😊 I would love to know more about your Kaapi. ❤
P.S If you haven't got bored of my ramblings by this time, kindly guide me to a shop in Bengaluru where I can get some brass davara sets. ❤

FUNGHI ASSOLUTI: oyster mushrooms baked with a coating of breadcrumbs, parmigiano, extra virgin olive oil, spices and garlic, served on a bed of greens with balsamic vinegar and olive oil dressing; my attempt to recreate one of my fav dishes from @terronito ( recipe link in bio) #cookingwithkaran#funghiassoluti
Looking for an easy peasy different side dish to serve with your fulka’s/parathas ? Try out this simple and delicious - Kathiyawadi Stuffed Baby Onion’s ! 😀
Kathiyawad is a region in Gujarat and its cuisine is pretty hot and spicy as compared to the traditional gujarati cuisine. The flavour of garlic and red chillies dominates most of its recipes. This Kathiyawadi Stuffed Baby Onion Recipe is simple to make but at the same time pretty spicy and delicious. The baby onions are slit and stuffed with a spicy groundnut masala made with roasted groundnuts, garlic, red chilli powder, coriander leaves, coriander powder and more. Then the stuffed onions are slow cooked. Have it with your Dal-Chawal or Roti-Dal, either way it’s wonderful. :) .
400 grams Baby Onions
3/4 cup Roasted Peanuts
10 cloves Garlic
2 tablespoons Coriander Powder
2 tablespoons Red chilli powder
1 teaspoon Cumin powder
1/2 teaspoon Turmeric powder
4 tablespoons Coriander leaves , finely chopped
4 teaspoons Cooking oil
Salt , to taste .
- Peel the baby onions, slit into 4 parts keeping the base intact, to help us fill the stuffing once done. Keep aside.
- For the stuffing, make a coarse dry mix of the roasted peanuts, garlic cloves, coriander powder, red chilli powder, cumin, turmeric and salt using a mixer grinder and take it out into a bowl.
- Now add the chopped coriander, about 2 teaspoons oil to the filling mixture and mix well till crumbly.
- Take the slit baby onions and carefully fill in the ground mixture into each one of them.
- Heat the remaining oil in a non stick pan, place the stuffed onions on the surface of the pan and let it cook on low heat for 5 minutes.
- Add about 1/4 cup of water, add the remaining stuffing mix, close it with a lid and let the onions cook in the steam. This will take about 10 minutes.
- Sauté sparingly if required in between. Make sure the onions are cooked well retaining its shape.
- Once the onions are cooked, switch off the heat and garnish with coriander leaves.
