Tandoori Chicken Salad

The tandoori chicken salad is paired with red onion pickle, a tomato chutney and mango. You have to try this combination. Even if you are not a fan of tandoori chicken (like the hubby), when you have it with the pickled red onion, the sweet mango and the tomato chutney it.is.divine.

Asian chicken salad

Why am i writing this before breakfast? Oh yeah because i have kids and i have to do this whilst they are sleeping! I have been stuck in the house for 3 or 4 days now and i want to climb the walls. Except i can’t. I hate being indoors. I miss walking. As my regular readers know, i love walking but walking in this heat. No thank you. I know us brits love to moan when it’s hot but i really do prefer a cooler climate. This asian chicken salad however is great for the heat. It’s pretty healthy and low in calories too. Woohoo!

Slow Cooked Roast Lamb Shoulder

Can you believe it’s almost Eid? Really? How quickly did that come round?! Is it just me that feels like Ramadan Eid was just yesterday? Guess what? It’s our wedding anniversary on Eid too! I’m not sure how I feel about that.. Well I kinda do actually. It would be fab to get a mini break from the day and slip out for an hour! However if there happens to be a slow cooked roast lamb shoulder on the table, i could be tempted to stay in all day. 😉

Chicken Curry

Most people love a chicken curry. It is a staple favourite weekly meal in asian households and for good reason. It is delicious and it will satisfy the whole family. Chicken curry with roti or rice is the meal no one complains about and everyone needs a recipe like that. My in laws actually call this recipe, chicken soup which used to confuse me a lot. It isn’t thick like a normal curry, it is more like a broth/soup so it makes sense.

Vegan Black Bean Chilli

I love chilli, meat and not meat. Or vegetarian/vegan and the meat version. That sounds better then non meat right? This vegan black bean chilli is delicious and I actually love it. I imagine I will be eating a lot more over it over the next few months. Basically, we have cut back even further on our meat intake. I had meat for the first time in three weeks yesterday. I was like yes boy. I missed you honey. Jump in my mouth. Let’s be friends. I love you darling etc etc. What I am saying is, I really missed it. That doesn’t mean I will up my intake again but let me tell you, I just appreciated it a lot more after that break bruv.
