Soaking Fruit for Christmas Cake 2013

Last year for the first time I made my own Christmas cake flavoured with chocolate and cherries. It was meant to be a little different, but to be honest it wasn’t that different from a traditional Christmas Fruit Cake.

This year I am trying again to go a little on to the unusual side. In this case by using Indian spice blend Garam Masala instead of just the usual Christmas spice collection: cinnamon, ginger, cloves and all spice.

I am following this recipe for Garam Masala Christmas Cake.

Can you guess what I am making today?

Cauliflower Curry

I had to admit I was pretty surprised to see that I have never blogged a Cauliflower Curry before.

I have taken pictures before, I have folders and folders of them on my Mac, but I guess it just seems too simple to post. Let’s face it, Cauliflower is never going to be the sexiest vegetable.

However if you have a huge cauliflower and a husband that dislikes Cauliflower cheese, then maybe this recipe will also be helpful for you too!

Indian Lamb Chops with Butternut Squash Salad

Indian Lamb Chop with Butternut Squash Salad

A week last Tuesday I got Nigella’s latest recipe book Kitchen: Recipes from the heart of the home.

You can win a copy of this recipe book by filling in the How do you use food blogs questionnaire. More details on the questionnaire and giveaway here.

It’s been ages since I got a new recipe book so I was really excited. I eagerly flipped through the pages, until I got to this recipe, then I stopped.

Red Onion Chicken Curry

If this is an authentic Indian curry, I don’t know what it is called. I made this using a similar ingredient list and method to this Rojan Josh.

Tandoori Chicken

total yoghurt haul

I got a lot of yoghurt this week from the kind people at Total. When it all arrived on Monday, I wasn’t sure what to do with it all. I now have a fair idea use some in salad dressings, some in curries of different types, some in cakes and lastly I plan to make some frozen yoghurt.

I’m really excited by all the different possibilities, the fact that the second shelf of my fridge is full of yoghurt means I am going to have to get creative, and yes I find that exciting.

Tonight I made one of my favourite yoghurt dishes, in fact I have mentioned it here before. But this time I am going to post it myself as I have made a few changes! You can see the original full recipe here.

As you will have guessed by now indian inspired food is sort of a passion of mine, this dish is easy, and although I have never cooked it on a barbecue I am sure it would be perfect. (Lucky you if you are getting the weather for it – as we certainly aren’t.)

Vegetable Rogan Josh

My once monthly lonely Indian Curry night strikes again with another, even if I do say so myself, fantabulous vegetarian curry. Last month I finally made this wonderful Beetroot Curry, this month I turn to a vegetarian version of this Lamb Rogan Josh from Them Apples.

Now please don’t take away my food blogging license – but I am going to tell you a secret. Until Friday I had never boiled an egg.

Salmon Kedgeree

I’ve fried eggs, poached them, scrambled them, made omelettes and frittatas but I’ve never hard or soft boiled an egg.

Beetroot Curry

Beetroot Curry

Getting a fairly regular supply of fresh beetroot is one of the best things about my organic vegetable delivery. Beets are wonderfully versatile, I’ve used them in salads, in muffins and in soups – but making a curry from them is the ultimate for me.

When people normally talk about comfort food, they usually talk about typically national dishes, macaroni and cheese, bangers and mash etc. But when things aren’t quite working out for me it’s not the british or scottish dishes that I usually turn to – it’s the Indian.

Spice-rubbed Chicken with Orange and Pomegranate Salad

Last Friday night I made a light dinner, this would be perfect for a main course of a large meal, or as a lunch. I didn’t immediately think that the orange would work with curry spices but it really was a fantastic flavour combination. And super healthy.
