South Indian Beef Cutlets

There are several varieties of cutlets including vegetable and fish, but the one I ate most often as a kid was the beef cutlet. This crispy, flavorful, savory appetizer is something I would either dunk into a pool of Maggi’s Spicy Ketchup or eat with sarlas, a simple onion salad. 

Sambar (a south indian vegetable stew)

Sambar is made many different ways. In fact, different districts within South India all seem to have their own variation. From the types of vegetable used to the spice blends, the combinations are vast. 

Dosa (South Indian Crepe)

After going back and forth between different rice varieties, lentil variations, and fermentation methods I’ve finally come to a dosa recipe that creates a crispy and tangy flavor. 

Kerala Fruitcake (Plum Cake)

This fruitcake is a classic Christmas recipe in my house. When I was younger, I’d help my mom mix giant bowls of this batter so we could make enough loaves to send to just about all of our family members. For my mom, she found so much joy and pride in making this cake – it’s like she was sharing more than a piece of cake…she was sharing a piece of her memories with everyone around her.

Kerala Shrimp Kati Roll

You know what’s nice about fusion recipes like this? They bridge familiar concepts with the unfamiliar.That’s what I thought about when making this Kerala Shrimp Kati Roll recipe. It’s packed with flavor and succulent, spiced shrimp.

Amma’s Chicken Curry

It’s here. The chicken curry recipe that gives off nostalgia-inducing aromas. And, if you’ve never had a Kerala-style chicken curry, well, you’re in for a treat because this is the original Foodie Cutie’s recipe, or as I call her, mom (amma).
