Kerala is well known for its sea food delicacies and one of the recipes to top the list is the Chemmeen Pollichathu / Prawns Pollichathu. This is a spicy dish that will tingle your taste buds. Prawns is first marinated with the spices and then sauteed in a pan. It is then coated with the masala. This classic preparation is one of the dishes tourists coming to Kerala always look out for. I have always been a fan of Meen Pollichathu/ Fish Pollichathu. It is one of the healthiest way to have fish. It is on one of these searches on the internet that I found this recipe here. Traditionally the prawns is wrapped in a banana leaf , tied into a parcel and then baked on a heavy caste iron skillet or steamed. This brings out the flavours of the dish. This is a slightly easier version. It tasted too good!!

I haven't met anyone who does not like Puris. Puri is an unleavened deep fried popular bread of India. You go to the south or north of India Puri is a popular Indian breakfast item. It is served with potato bhaji and chutney is also an amazing combination. Today I would like to share a healthier version of puris that can be made easily. This is the Milk Puri where the dough is made with a mixture of room temperature milk and poovan bananas. The puris are soft.

Rinku’s Kitchen Treats is celebrating its 4th anniversary. Oh my time has been flying extremely fast! Creating this blog is one of the best decisions I ever made, as it allows me to connect with people that feel the same way about food as I do. And allows me to share my favorite cuisine- the Kerala cuisine with the rest of the world. I didn't have a plan when I set out on this blogging journey. But I am taking it on a slow pace and enjoying every minute of it.
Foremost, I want to thank my husband and kids who play a large role behind the scenes. And want to thank all my readers for visiting my website and following us on Facebook, and Pinterest. I truly appreciate it! It’s your readership that makes me continue blogging. I would even take this opportunity to thank my family for being so supportive, my friend Shireen, who has been a constant guide and my other friends who are always there for me.
So to all of you who have been a part of my blogging journey, I want to say an enormous THANK YOU. I really appreciate your kind comments, shares and feedback. Wishing you all a prosperous New Year!
