The magic of Chaiiwala

The magic of Chaiiwala

It is a truth universally acknowledged that an indian person with things on their mind will require half a cup of masala chai to solve all their problems. So the success of Chaiiwala (based in Leicester, UK) was inevitable.

Crispy Oven Baked Potato Wedges

Crispy Oven Baked Potato Wedges

I have always loved crispy oven baked potato wedges but only recently started making them myself. Crispy, crunchy potato wedges seasoned perfectly and served with sour cream sounds like a perfect side dish to me. I remember going out in my younger years and devouring a plate of potato wedges dipped in sour cream. I am not really a fan of the frozen variety. In fact I am not a fan of frozen anything. I don’t tend to keep ready meals of any variety in the freezer. I have plenty of frozen fruit and veg though for shakes/granitas/sorbets.

Sticky Chinese Chicken

Sticky Chinese Chicken

This sticky chinese chicken is the most delicious thing ever and it is even better served with rice. I am yet to meet a person who doesn’t love it. It is also perfect for cheat day. Obviously this is a one off treat for me especially since I barely eat meat anymore and rarely eat unhealthy meals anymore. Says the girl who ate something loaded with sugar just 5 days ago. Yes what I mean is that, that is the intention going forward. I’m only on day five on my cleanse and pretending I have been eating this way for decades. Lols…But I have got that meat thing down. I barely eat it now. Which is so odd. I used to eat it everyday. Twice a day. I don’t know if this is the post to go into factory farming. Nah probably not. Especially because I am so out of it.
