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…

Happy Mother’s Day :)

Happy Mother’s Day to all Mums! Even though we are still in lockdown and may not be with our loved ones this Sunday, let’s take comfort in knowing we will hopefully be with our nearest and dearest very soon. At least we have technology to connect us 🙂 For those of you who know me…

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…

Turkish Kebabs – Friday Fakeaway

Are you missing restaurants as much as I am? Let’s hope they re-open soon. As much as we love a takeaway, its sometimes nice to make your own version at home. Plus its cheaper and healthier! I love Turkish restaurants. The grilled kebabs with fluffy rice and those vibrant salads are heavenly. Served with lots…

Gujarati Dhokla

Even though there are so many exciting recipes and cuisines out there to try, nothing beats the food you grew up on. The food that makes you happy and creates a sense of nostalgia. The food that takes you back home. My lovely Aunty sent me some homemade food the other day (abiding by social…

Asian Steamed Sea Bass

Sea bass is my absolute favourite fish. It’s so delicate and versatile. I normally pan fry fillets or oven cook a whole sea bass, but this time I decided to try something different, and oh my was it worth it. I steamed the sea bass fillets in greaseproof paper parcels and the fish came out…

Chicken Toad in the Hole

Toad in the hole is a British classic. A giant Yorkshire pudding with sausages baked in the middle? Yes please. Although sausages are not great for the waistline. We don’t often eat sausages but I really wanted toad in the hole so I thought, why not put something else in the middle? That’s how chicken…

Vegan Stuffed Peppers

My husband and I try to eat a vegan/vegetarian meal at least a couple of times a week, as I believe that we don’t need to eat so much meat and fish all week long. Plus it’s cheaper! Eating a vegetarian meal is not a compromise, they can be delicious and satisfying. This recipe is…
