Tamil Muttai Thokku- Spiced egg curry cooked in tomato, garlic and chilli

26 September 2015
Muttai Thokku
I remember making notes for a recipe I cooked in a local home in Chennai a few years back. Hand written notes that frankly without measurements always made me wonder if I would ever get the recipe right! The recipe was narrated to me by Rashida Rehman. At the age of 68 she still cooked […]... more

Bengali Macher Chop – Deep fried potato cutlets stuffed with spiced fish

4 September 2015
Macher Chop
So many wonderful memories make up my regional food feast from cultures across India. Fish has always been a family favourite in our household and mum would try a variety of ways to cook them.

Peel, Chop & Blend! Garlic and Ginger paste…

Lucknowi Gobi Aloo ki Tahiri – Spiced vegetables layered with rice, butter and garam masala

25 June 2015
Awadhi Tahiri
I’m staring out of my window and it feels like an Indian monsoon rather than British summer with the pouring rain, one that calls for hearty meals that satisfy the senses. I am delving back in gravy dishes, biryanis and buttery parathas which seems odd really when I should be thinking of tandoori tikkas, bbq’s, […]... more
