Kerala Chicken Curry Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com



This chicken recipe is made with freshly ground spices with  easy method.

There are tons of recipe for Kerala Chicken Curry, you can find online.   Some uses fresh coconut  but this one without.

Am attracted to try out since it was way simpler when compared with others and uses  homemade spice blend.

You can remove the skin before cooking for  less fat option.

Adjust the spice according to your preference, either reduce or increase the dry chili used. Another interesting ingredient was the use of 20 whole shallots that makes this Kerala Chicken Curry its distinctive sweetness.

It goes well with rice, pulao or  flatbread.   We had friends  who dropped by unexpectedly  and joined us for dinner and  they loved it too.

HOW TO MAKE CHOCOLATE BROWNIES RECIPE

How to make Chocolate Brownies Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com


How to Make Chocolate Brownies  combine rich cocoa powder with  milk chocolate  to create a  irresistible treat.

It has been months I bake brownies for my family.  They are simple to make by combining dry ingredients in one bowl while whisking the wet ingredients in a separate bowl.

For non cake like brownies, always undercook them a bit so they are moist and gooey.

Let the How to Make Chocolate Brownies  cool  completely before slicing with a thin knife dipped in hot water then wiping dry or use a plastic one to get a smooth evenly cut brownie.   I usually  don't go for all the trouble  since people eat brownies too quickly to care what they look like.

CHOCOLATE CHIP BANANA CAKE RECIPE

Chocolate Chip Banana Cake Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

Quick and easy Chocolate Chip Banana Cake - thick, moist and loaded with chocolate chip.  I used oil in this recipe to make it lighter.

It uses self rising flour, ripened banana and oil.  In absence of self rising flour, add a teaspoon of baking powder and  half teaspoon of baking soda to plain flour.

Beat the eggs, oil  with sugar using a whisk, no mixer needed.   Add in  banana and vanilla, beat until well incorporated. Gently fold in flour and chocolate chips.

Used  11 x 7 in pan instead of 8 in cake pan.  Chocolate Chip Banana Cake turns out perfect  with  well distributed chocolate chips throughout.
