Spicy Fruit & Orange ‘Chicken’ Curry

Why not create a Christmas curry ?  The other day I found myself concocting spices and ingredients that would make for a wonderful festive curry.  This is what I came up with – a huge success, as well as a finger-licking finish !  Grapes, jumbo raisins, ‘chicken’ and lentils, combined with cinnamon, star anise, curry, chilli, and all things nice.  And then, to really make a sublime success of it, a creamy (nut) finish, that […]

Green Fruit & Vegetable Curry – with Pomegranate, Tomatoed Basmati Rice

I love fruit in curries, and this one is so mouthwatering, and full of great flavour.  I created it very much with the balance of sweet and savoury in mind, and I have to say it was a huge success.  It’s ideally suited to those times when you crave a curry, but also a sweet, but you don’t wish either to be too predominant.  Great served with popadoms, and my amazing Greek-inspired tomatoed basmati rice.  […]

Mouthwatering Prune, Portobello Mushroom Rice Curry

If time isn’t on your side, but you’re after a delicious curry, then you’ve come to the right place. I specialize in super fast curries – the reason being that I love the spice, the aroma, the flavour and the creative challenge. This particular aroma dances in your head, and all you need to accompany it are some crunchy popadoms, and a small red and green Indian-style salad.   This is a sort of Indo-Moroccan fusion […]

Kama Sutra Curry

Culinary love & pleasure are maxed up to the hilt in this lavish delight. Too many exotic ingredients combined to create this magnificent magic – so divine in taste, it was impossible to classify !

Serves 4 INGREDIENTS olive oil 1 medium sized onion, chopped finely 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped 2 cups (around 2 lbs/900 g) pumpkin peeled, cut into 1½ inch squares 1 large […]

Easy East Meets West Curried Rice

I felt like a risotto, but I only had basmati rice in the house, which I love.  This is one of those wonderful fusions that really works – hence its name. A delicious and easy to make recipe – kids will almost certainly love this – if they like mushrooms and sweetcorn that is – even though I have spiced it up nicely.  The flavours and textures really leave ones palette with a very satisfied […]

Easy Thai Vegetable Green Curry (Served with Rose Rice Pistacchios & Lime)

This is a very easy Thai curry, which is just so delicious !  It is low in fat and the flavours just linger on your palette.  So if you want to enjoy a Thai at home, or wish to make it for friends, then look no further.  I made enough for 2 days, which rocks, because I have a whole lot of stuff waiting to be sorted out after my return from holiday. Serves 4 […]

My Wagamama Yasai Katsu Curry

This is my veganized version of Wagamama’s yasai katsu curry – I tasted this curry sauce a while back with a vegetarian friend of mine. I couldn’t eat the vegetables as they were deep-fried, and I suspect the batter was made with eggs. but the sauce was quite delicious – a marriage of both sweet and spicy. I tried to savour the moment, and recreate the experience once I had returned home.  I specialize in […]

‘Moroccan Magic’ Mouthwatering Vegan Moroccan-Style Tagine

I have been meaning to make and share a tagine recipe of mine with you for ages, but something always seems to have taken over.  But the good thing being, this is an all-year all- rounder, and can be enjoyed anytime your heart desires.  This is a rich tagine, with long-lingering flavours, that will bring to life each and every taste bud you have – you’ll also realize you have more of them than you […]

My Pumpkin, Ginger & Eggplant Curry

I guess this is something of a hybrid curry – pumpkin and red peppers are a staple of Thai curries, and I have combined this with Indian spices, to create an aromatic dish that is wonderfully warming. I always find eggplant (aubergine) to be an eager substitute for meat, as it manages to retain its form, and soak up all the wonderful juices. This is delicious served with a generous dollop of chutney, and naan […]

Mouthwatering Kofta Masala

I made these koftas with simple ingredients. I wanted a sort of crunchy paneer taste, and then I wanted a contrasting semi-sweet sauce to tease the buds and satisfy all the senses – a medium to hot curry sauce to accompany these wonderful and unique koftas.  Then a mild vegetable such as spinach, I thought, would be ideal not to overburden the system.  A slight twist, with a sweet and savoury mix, creating a very […]
