Simple Curry Powder

Curry Powder

I thought it might be helpful if I provided some kind of basic curry powder recipe so my readers could go away and make a cheap and easy curry even if they don’t have all the ingredients to make one of my recipes. At the very least I think you should have these spices in your spice rack, once you do it takes a matter of seconds to create a large pot of this powder so you needn’t have to make up a separate spice mix for every curry you cook.

By the way, my inclusion of this “recipe” in both the Indian and British categories is because although it quite clearly makes use of Indian spices, it is actually something brought over here during the colonial era by us Brits.

Goan Chicken Curry

I’ve been cooking the same trio of curries for quite a while now, and thought it would be best to do something , if not completely different, then slightly different.

This does two things: firstly, it makes the curry a lot smoother; and, secondly, it reduces the cost somewhat over a curry which uses both yoghurt and tomato.

It is such a versatile food which can be used both as a filling or as a dip, and flavoured with no end of different spices and herbs. This hummus recipe may contain rather a lot of olive oil, but it’s still a great healthy snack and a fantastic way of taking on protein.

Stir-Fry Pork

Stir Fry Pork

The problem with coming home for the holiday is that there’s always so much bread, and bread makes you fat quickly, or in  my case… fatter. So I thought I’d throw together something healthy, using many of the left-overs in the house while I was at it. Indeed, left-over pork is ideal for this dish as it makes it even more juicy and means it doesn’t require much cooking at all. This dish is also perfect summer food and if you work out the right balance of flavours, as I’m trying to help you do, it will be very fresh and delicious, the only problem being that it could prove easily overpowered
