Mangalorean Plated Meal Series - Boshi# 35 - Meatball Curry, Fried Brinjals, Salad & Rice

BOSHI#35Since my son is inclined towards eating dishes that revolve around minced meat, I have been experimenting with a lot of new recipes of late. When I finally ran out of ideas I went back to my collection of recipes on the blog and found somethi...

Mangalorean Plated Meal Series - Boshi# 34 - Crab Sukka Masala, Fried Fish, Daaliso Saar, Gosalem Thel Piyao & Rice

BOSHI#34Folks, the much loved and very much in demand, boshi is back! As much as I would make it a weekly affair as I used to from the time I started this series, I am unable to, due to lack of time. I hope to get back on track in another few weeks.

Mangalorean Plated Meal Series - Boshi# 33 - Sardine Fry, Rice Papads, Sprouted Moong Curry, Tendli Carrot Pickle & Rice

BOSHI# 33The Boshi series is back! I just realised that the last one was posted in October 2015! Boy, time does fly! It's been more than 4 months now and I thought it was about time that I revived the series only because I have been receiving man...

Mangalorean Plated Meal Series - Boshi# 29 - Ambadyanchi Kadi, Mitgi Sango Miryapito, Fried Fish, Fried Pathrode, Pickle & Rice

BOSHI#29So I am back with a special boshi this time. I have several traditional things on the menu which are mostly seasonal. I don't usually overload my plate like this as you may have noticed. For me its just a portion each of protein, carbs an...

Mangalorean Plated Meal Series - Boshi# 27 - Pork Bafat with Yam & Radish, Tomato Saar, Beans Thel Piao

BOSHI#27We like to cook something special on Sundays and since we hadn't cooked pork in a while I decided to bug the husband to make some pork bafat for me. This time he decided to add some yam (his favourite) and some radish (which we won't...

Mangalorean Plated Meal Series - Boshi# 26 - Goan Fish Curry, Tendli Ani Moi & Rice

BOSHI#26It is beginning to get really really hot here in Dubai and I am sure its the same in most countries. I have started resorting to making very simple meals now and we prefer eating more seafood than meats and so I prepared this simple fish curr...

Mangalorean Plated Meal Series - Boshi# 25 - Mutton Stew, Dry Masala Bhindi & Rice

BOSHI#25Today I present to you a meal that will delight mutton lovers. The Mangalorean style Mutton Stew with coconut milk is one of my most favourites as it reminds me of my childhood. My mother used to make a lot of coconut milk based curries espec...

Mangalorean Plated Meal Series - Boshi# 24 - Kadgi Ghashi, Tendli Ani Moi, Prawn Pickle, Rice & Papad

BOSHI#24A couple of weeks ago we brought a nice big raw jackfruit which the husband generously cleaned and shredded. Now since we are just two of us who actually like traditional Mangalorean fare we had to pretty much finish it all. After the Kadgi S...

Mangalorean Plated Meal Series - Boshi# 23 - Padengi Ghassi, Choriz Bafat, Salad & Rice

BOSHI#23Sometimes you randomly pair some dishes for your everyday meal and they match so well isn't it? The flavours of the moong curry and the choriz bafat went along like a house on fire! So delicious I can't tell you! This is a perfect mea...

Mangalorean Plated Meal Series - Boshi# 22 - Kadgi Sukhi, Bazelli Masli, Daliso Saar & Rice

BOSHI#22I have been a bit under the week since the past one week and so the meals were kept simple. The hubby brought some raw jackfruit which he cleaned and shredded to be enjoyed in various ways. Since we both like this seasonal goodie in all its f...

Mangalorean Plated Meal Series - Boshi# 20 - Mackerel Masala, Beans & Carrot Stir Fry and Rice

BOSHI#20The simplest of our meals at home consist of seafood and a vegetable on the side served with rice. Since I have been really busy since last week I just had enough time to put this simple yet delicious meal together. Beans and carrots are a ma...

Mangalorean Plated Meal Series - Boshi# 19 - Chicken Masala Fry, Valchebaji Ani Guley, Salad & Rice

BOSHI# 19My most favourite thing to do is add veggies to curries because it makes my job easy and I don't need to make a separate dish. Today's boshi has a lovely Mangalorean style vegetable gravy with Malabar Spinach and Black Eyed Beans pai...

Mangalorean Plated Meal Series - Boshi# 18 - Mushroom Curry, Gule Sukhe, Salad & Neer Dosa

BOSHI# 18Until now I thought presenting a pure veg boshi was a pain. Not anymore! I actually had fun putting this meal plan together as I felt the selection of items and flavours complemented each other very well. The mushrooms could very well be a m...

Mangalorean Plated Meal Series - Boshi# 17 - Chicken Green Curry, Chana Sukka, Salad & Neer Dosa

BOSHI# 17Today's boshi has some of my childhood memories served on it. The chicken green curry is one my mum's trademark recipes and stands to be my all time favourite. I have many fond memories of eating it. She used to make three types of g...

Mangalorean Plated Meal Series - Boshi# 15 - Egg Roce Curry, Thambdi Baji, Karathe Sukhe & Rice

BOSHI# 15An egg, in my opinion, is the most versatile ingredient on this planet. You can eat it in so many different ways, in sweets or savouries. My favourite way of eating an egg is frying it sunny side up or in a curry, hard boiled and dunked in a...

Mangalorean Plated Meal Series - Boshi# 14 - Dal Khichdi, Yogurt, Pickle & Papad

BOSHI# 14Today, the 18th of February is Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent - the season of fasting and prayer and observing moderation and frugality. Christians all over the world observe it in their own way, be it giving up of certain habits or lu...

Mangalorean Plated Meal Series - Boshi# 13 - Chicken Indad, Sango Thel Piao, Kachumber, Chapathis

BOSHI# 13The last boshi for the season that features meat. Lent begins on Wednesday, the 18th of Feb and I hope to keep my plated meals as simple as possible. The upcoming boshis will be either pure vegetarian or a combination of veggies and seafood.

Mangalorean Plated Meal Series - Boshi# 12 - Hyderabadi Chicken, Cabbage Upkari & Plain Paratha

BOSHI# 12Today's boshi has something slightly different. This is my little fellow's favourite meal combo. He loves chicken in thick gravies, usually North Indian style and prefers something without coconut in it. I tricked him into eating this one an...
