Curried Sausage Rolls

Don’t we all just love a beige platter?  Delicious carby goodness staring at us from the buffet table.  Quiches, scotch eggs, chicken bites and of course – sausage rolls.  This time last year I gave you sausage rolls spiked with traditional Christmas flavours.  However this year I decided to take a different approach.  This season…

Sweet Curry Fries

Anglo-Indian food is an absolute staple of UK takeaways, and while we may differ in many of our choices – korma or vindaloo, peshwari or garlic naan, bombay aloo or saag – we can all agree on one thing.  Aren’t the poppadoms lovely?  Beautiful crisp discs topped with onion, mint yoghurt, mango chutney and if…

Roasted Squash and Cauliflower Curry Soup

I’ve only recently discovered the joy that is roasted cauliflower in curry powder.  Having always been a fan of Aloo Ghobi, it was no surprise that this worked but WHOA, did it work.  This was a gorgeously silky soup packed with flavour.  The squash gave it a beautiful body and the curried cauliflower offered a…

Roast Pumpkin, Chickpea and Spinach Curry (Vegan)

It’s that time of year!  Hallowe’en decorations are being dusted off, leaves are falling from the trees and basics are making their way to Starbucks for some Pumpkin Spice.  Well, here’s a different kind of spicy pumpkin.  The roasted pumpkin carries a substantial flavour punch with its sweet, thick flesh. It’s well worth making sure…

Spicy Mango Beef Burgers

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times – meat and fruit are the perfect partners!  Yes, we all know of Cranberry & Turkey or Apple & Pork.  On this website I’ve already experimented with many more pairings, and here’s time for a bright fresh fruity burger to match the changing weather….

Sweet Potato and Coconut Curry

I’ve had dishes similar to this in various restaurants over the past few years, but by far the best came from a small vegetarian place in Soho a few weeks ago.  My friends mother was dining on it and after trying a forkful I was so jealous I became determined to replicate it, a task…

Bombay Aloo – Indian Potato Side Dish

Indian cuisine has played a very prominent role in my relationship with food; in my family, roughly 9/10 special occasions were marked by a visit to one of the local Indian restaurants; as I grew into my mid-teens and my parents spent more evenings/nights out, it was my go-to accompaniment for Friday night television.  Perhaps…

Satay Chicken Curry

For some, they’re delicious bar snacks and a great source of protein…for others, they’re a death sentence.  The peanut is an interesting one, as it suits both sweet and savoury dishes equally well. Satay Chicken is deliciously marinated and grilled with spiced peanut flavours, and this dish combines it with a peanut-coconut based curry.  Super…

Matar Paneer (Curried Peas and Indian Cheese)

This is, without a doubt, my favourite Indian dish.  For those who haven’t tried it, Paneer is a non-melting cheese similar to Halloumi.  It’s soft in texture and does a great job of absorbing the flavours around it.  It is also very high in protein, making it a great meat substitute. This dish combines it…

Sweet Potato and Coconut Veggie Burgers

Introduction This is one of those glorious examples of a recipe I thought up one night while going to sleep, though “hmm, might work okay,” and then it exceeded all expectations.  I will be making this a LOT more. The cool, refreshing coconut balanced by the milder sweet potato flavour with a little sweet chili…
