This here Moong daal soup is a staple meal in my house and a lot of houses of an asian background. Some people cook the moong daal in a pressure cooker. Not me though. See a few years ago I had a very unfortunate accident with a pressure cooker so thanks but no thanks!
Aubergine Curry with Coconut and Peanuts – Bagare Baingan
I LOVE aubergine. It is so unbelievably versatile. It’s a great carrier of flavours. As a family, we eat loads of aubergine dishes. As well as this aubergine curry with coconut and peanuts – bagare baingan (the name it is known by), I also make a delicious aubergine curry with potatoes and peas, aubergine curry with minced lab and boiled eggs, moussaka, aubergine parmesan, aubergine stacks, stuffed aubergines, aubergine with kisir, aubergine mezze, miso aubergine, aubergine slices, and the list goes on. I also love the sound of an afghan aubergine dish where the aubergine is layered with tomatoes and yoghurt. Afghan food is delicious and I just know it will be good without even trying it. As for turkish mezze..omg. I am lucky enough to live near an awesome turkish place and sometimes I go in there and just pick up some mezze and hot, fresh bread and we all dive in.
This Masala fish recipe is one I used to make all the time! I had kinda forgot about it for a while but now it is back in my life. It is one of those recipes that is handy to have for a sudden get together. I am yet to come across a person who doesn’t like it.
If there is one vegetable I have always loved, it would be the humble sweet potato. I like to think I ate it before it was cool. Before all the reports about how great it is for you. We’re talking several years ago. When I was in my teens, I would simply poke holes in it, bake it and have it with whatever my mum had made that day. So good! So naturally i love stuffed sweet potatoes!
