Spicy One Pot Lamb Curry

Spicy One Pot Lamb Curry

So. I was going to make a lamb bhuna. I really really was. I read about the bhuna; I looked at a few recipes. I prepared some ingredients and wrote a quick plan of what I was going to do. It was going to be […]

Easy Chicken Jalfrezi

Easy Chicken Jalfrezi

I’ve been making my own curries for a while now. I didn’t for a long time, the ingredients intimidated me, and I couldn’t understand how they’d merge together to create such powerful flavours. Then, I had a go, starting with a really simple, pretty generic […]

Sweet and Sour Pork

Sweet and Sour Pork

I’m one of those people that loves mixing sweet and savoury. I put pineapple on pizza, and I’m addicted to parsnip and apple soup. So, it should come as no surprise that I also love the combination of sweet and sour. When I eat this […]

Easy Sticky Chicken

Easy Sticky Chicken

We recently had sweet and sticky pork, which was a huge hit! So, we obviously thought we’d have to try some Sticky Chicken! My favourite thing about making your own sauces like this Sticky Chicken is that once you’ve got the bits in the make sauces, […]

One Pot Chicken Tikka Masala

One Pot Chicken Tikka Masala

This started off as a Madhur Jaffrey recipe. Which I’m sure would have been wonderful, but I made a few changes. The first because I didn’t have any chilli powder, somehow! But I did have some gorgeously fresh green chillies I wanted to use. Madhur […]

Sweet and Sticky Pork

Sweet and Sticky Pork

I really fancied something different the other day. I love making my own sauces; we’ve got such a little store of different kinds of vinegar and spices now and just like when I make curries, I love putting them together to try and create something […]

Pork Souvlaki Wraps

Pork Souvlaki Wraps

Following on from the success of our Beef stifado and Greek takeaway we really fancied more Greek food. We have chicken souvlaki wraps quite often. I love making flatbreads and they work perfectly. The kids love them too. So, fresh and tasty. But, we’ve been […]

Epic Chicken Korma

Epic Chicken Korma

It was a bit of an Epic Chicken Korma. I wasn’t entirely sure what I was doing, to be honest. I’ve eaten a lot of Chicken Korma in my time, but I’ve never made one, and I struggled to get that distinct Chicken Korma flavour. […]

Onion Bhaji Burgers with a Yogurt Mint Sauce

Onion Bhaji Burgers with a Yogurt Mint Sauce

I’ve made onion bhaji’s a few times. They’re really good. But then, onion bhaji’s are a favourite of mine anyway and absolutely always first on my take away list. I love them. So, when husband mentioned the Onion Bhaji Burgers he’d been making at work […]

Greek Beef Stifado Recipe

Greek Beef Stifado Recipe

A Beef Stifado is basically a Greek stew. But, it tastes completely different from the stews we are used to. It’s full of red wine, loads of spices and flavours, so it’s an almost fruity taste. Very different from my left-over Sunday lunch beef stock […]
