RAW BANANA IN YOGURT SAUCE (BANANA KALAN)

'Kalan' is a traditional Kerala style dish that is made by mixing Yogurt. Here, I made this dish with Raw Banana and Yogurt so I give this name. You make same dish by using Yam also. Keralites know this dish very much because they can't avoid it for their traditional celebrations. If you need sweet Kalan use Ripe Banana and Ripe Mango to make this tasty dish. I tasted this dish 6 years ago I knew  only its name before. I had it from one restaurant for the Onam celebration and I liked its taste very much. I like Yogurt dishes very much because it will have a good taste whatever makes it with Yogurt. So we are making Kalan in my home after that and Yogurt helps to increase its taste. It is very easy to make and it is super combination with hot plain Rice for lunch. Grated Coconut Paste gives thickness and natural traditional taste to this dish. It is also a spicy-less dish so it can be useful for children. This is very healthy and tasty traditional dish.

KERALA FISH MOLLY

Fish molly is also known as fish stew. It has different name in different places. We can write it as fish molee. It is completely a traditional tasty curry. I can say that it is entirely different from other fish curries because its colour and method of preparation is completely different from others. It can make it by using any type of fishes. Better to make it with king fish but here I have used Mackerel fish because I couldn't get king fish. Usually we are making spicy red colour fish curry in houses and hotels.
