Urad Daal (Black Lentil Daal)

I hope you’ve all had a great bank holiday weekend. What is going on with the weather? Snow in April? Now I’ve seen it all. Bring back the sun please, I’m cold. If you’re anything like me, you’ve been over indulging the past few days. As lovely as it was, I now crave some simple…

Slow Cooked Indian Spiced Shoulder of Lamb

Easter is coming up this weekend and I am so excited. I love everything about this holiday from the beautiful Spring weather to hot cross buns and copious amounts of chocolate. There’s just something about this time of year that puts a ‘spring’ in your step. Sorry. One of my other favourite things to eat…

Fish Burgers with Harissa Mayo

I have your Friday night fakeaway ready for you! Yes this is a very naughty recipe, but let’s just put that aside. Let’s focus on the positives here. Homemade crispy chip shop style fish, spicy harissa mayonnaise with crisp shredded lettuce and a soft brioche bun, served with homemade chips. Yes please! If we can’t…

Tandoori Chicken Salad with Braised Lettuce

Sounds posh right? It really isn’t. I love a good salad but I tend to get bored very easily. Also when the weather is cold, I can’t seem to face a cold salad. I want something warm and comforting, but also healthy and exciting. This is my twist on a chicken salad. Spicy tandoori chicken…

Spinach and Ricotta Cannelloni

Sometimes its nice to make something that’s a little more special. Whether its for your other half or you just feel like treating yourself (why not?), this is a great recipe to adapt. There are so many recipes out there so feel free to put your own spin on it, but this is how I…

Homemade Tandoori Chicken

You don’t always need a tandoor oven to have great tasting tandoori chicken. Although if you do have one I would be highly impressed! And jealous. Can I come over? A tandoor oven is a traditional clay oven widely used in Indian cooking that cooks food at high temperatures over charcoal. It creates the most…

Breakfast Parathas

Breakfast Parathas on a Sunday morning is one of my best childhood memories. I would wake up to the smell of my Mum cooking them in the kitchen, and it would make me run down the stairs just so I could eat them hot off the fryer. Now every woman I know has a different…

Grilled Prawn Linguine

If you want a really quick but luxurious and satisfying dish, this is one for you. I love this dish because it feels slightly posh like something you would find in an Italian restaurant, but actually is very easy and accessible to make at home. There’s all sorts of recipes out there, but as you…

Sunday Slow Cooked Lamb Stew

Everyone loves a lazy Sunday, or at least a Sunday when you are not slaving away in the kitchen all day long. To me its a day to catch up on everything that I don’t get to do during the week and to find time to take a long walk by the canal, bake a…

Poached eggs, Smashed Avocado and Sour Dough Toast

Weekends are about lazy mornings and great food in my eyes. After a busy week at work, I long to make something comforting that requires a bit more time on a Saturday or Sunday morning. This is not exactly a recipe as you might have seen this everywhere but I had to share it with…
