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.
They are also quite good hot out of the frying pan in a roll with tomato ketchup. Back home, right beside my old high school there was an Italian Cafe that sold cheap breakfast rolls to the kids. Bacon rolls were always more expensive, so if you wanted your can of juice, a roll and a chocolate bar, you always went for the cheaper option – the Tattie Scone Roll.
