We are serving this tonight with falafel, homemade flatbread (thank you Chef Michael Severn) and salad but it would also go great with pasta, or as a tapas or snack with a glass of wine.

So without further ado, here is the secret to my hyderabadi curry recipe. Read the rest of this entry »

This meal only takes about 10 or 15 minutes which, coincidentally is about the same time it takes to whip up some rice or a chapati…perfect! Read the rest of this entry »
This Jeera Chicken recipe is thanks to Charlie Ladher – I wanted to add some foundation and more understanding of indian cooking so I enrolled on an Indian cookery course at a local college. Today we made a jeera chicken recipe (jeera means cumin). Myself and Amanda have not been eating meat for the past few weeks so I substituted the chicken for Quorn chicken – it worked out just fine!
