I could swim in aubergine curry. I really could. Well maybe not. Might get a bit greasy like. What I mean to say is that, I just love it. It is so delicious. I mean, I think I could quite happily live off aubergine and come up with a new way of making it every day. Literally there are so many ways to use it. It is the ultimate versatile vegetable and I want some right now.
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.
Easy Tandoori Chicken made 2 Ways
This easy tandoori chicken made 2 ways is a nice, tasty and easy recipe that you can make on a day when you don’t have energy/time to spend in the kitchen. Needless to say neither of these methods involve using a tandoor.
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.
Moong daal soup
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.
Almond and Red Pepper Chicken
Almond and red pepper chicken is one of my favourite meals. It is a meal that everyone thoroughly enjoys. A real crowd pleaser. It is another meal that can be enjoyed with roti or rice.
Kidney Beans Curry – Rajma Masala
I am yet to come across a person who doesn’t love kidney beans curry – rajma masala. We serve it with fragrant cumin and vegetable rice. Just before i left my mums, my sister made some and now i just want to eat it again.
One of my favourite recipes in the world is Tadka Daal. It is simplicity at its best! Not only does it taste delicious, it also really warms you up in winter. I serve this daal with rice or roti. For sides, I make Crispy Okra and Crispy Aubergine.
