Aubergine Curry

Aubergine Curry 

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.

Vegan Black Bean Chilli

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.

Moong daal soup

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

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 aubergineaubergine 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.

Tadka Daal

Tadka Daal

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.

Chickpea, sweet potato, feta and Quinoa salad

Chickpea, sweet potato, feta and Quinoa salad

Chickpea, sweet potato, feta and Quinoa salad is a salad that i have often because it doesn’t feel like a salad. That’s a win win situation if you ask me. All the benefits of a salad but without all the calories. I love that is is so hearty, filling and subtly flavoured. Some times i don’t want overpowering, ‘hey look at me’ flavours. Sometimes I want texture, simplicity and fresh flavours. Sometimes I like it when every ingredient sings and stands firm, rather then being forced out of the equation altogether by strong, in your face flavours.

Paneer with Peas – Muttar Paneer

Paneer with Peas – Muttar Paneer

I love paneer. Paneer with Peas – Muttar Paneer is one of my favourite ways to eat paneer. I also love to make my own paneer mainly because despite how easy it is to make, I feel really clever when I do it. I prefer this curry dry but you can also make it more like a soupy curry by adding more water.
