For all the paneer lovers out there. My first memory of having Paneer Makhani was about 20 years ago near Christmas time in Kaalash Manchester. Warning this is an addictive dish full of flavour, calories and should only be eaten on a cheat day!!!
I got inspired to make this after eating somthing similar as streetfood in waterloo. Warning you will not be able to just eat one! You can add other things as toppings such as pomegrate, corriander, chillies. I made this today and there was non left and lots of smiling faces. Continue reading “Khasta kachori”

When you are thinking how do I ensure I get my 5 day? The answer is simple make a long green/french bean curry. In Gujarati this is called Posho nu shak. These beans are humble and full of flavour, known for being rich in fibre, potassium, magnesium calcium and vitamin A,B and C. You can add potatoes to this recipe if you like but i prefer the sweet flavour of the beans with the perfect balance of spices. Serve with paratha or chapati. Continue reading “Green Bean Curry”
So I know what you are thinking cabbage and curry! EH! In Gujarati this is called Gobi Matar nu shak. Its pretty easy to make and the crunch of the cabbage and the sweetness of the peas makes it an amazing combination. I am not sure why but it does taste better the next day after you reheat it. I am guessing its something to do with the flavours being soaked up into the vegetables more. You will not know what you are missing till you try. Continue reading “Cabbage Pea Curry”
I joined a gym today, in celebration I thought I would make salad which is super tasty. When I talk to friends about salad I see their eyes glaze over as they start thinking about food with taste! People seem to have negative connotations to salad and I am not sure why! This is my hot cold salad recipe, healthy, filling and most of all yummy. Continue reading “Hot cold salad”

My close friend introduced me to Baba Ghanoush in summer. I am so glad they did! It is super healthy yet amazingly tasty. I am a big fan of aubergine the unsung hero of super foods, naturally low in calories, aubergine contains vitamins A, B, C, potassium, magnesium and a great source of fibre. Have it as a dip with some pitta bread or carrot sticks a delicious snack anytime of the day. This is my take on Baba Ghanoush free free to share yours maybe we can co create something even more yummy.
