Roasted Radish and Spring Onion Salad

Recipe for Roasted Radishes

A simple fusion of great British produce and two iconic flavours of Asian cuisine, this recipe for Roasted Radish and Spring Onion Salad provides an inspiring use for two of Britain’s most loved early season ingredients. Usually eaten raw in light, leafy salads, roasting your radishes may seem novel, but doing so brings out a sweetness otherwise hidden by their usual peppery notes. This caramelised sweetness contrasts beautifully with the dark, salty quality of the soy sauce to create a unique and interesting salad you’ll not forget in a hurry.

Egg Fried Rice

Egg Fried Rice Recipe (1)

Let me show you how to make egg fried rice the easy way. Usually, when making this classic dish the uncooked egg is added to the wok with the rice. I don’t know about you, but that method is so hit-and-miss that you’re somewhat likely to end up with an unpleasant rice/egg mush. It’s better to sidestep the issue completely, go fool-proof and prepare your egg separately. The result is perhaps even more delicious; it’s certainly easier to appreciate and savour the egg. I may be a fool, but I’m a clever one.

Leftover Turkey Curry

Leftover-Turkey-Recipe

Christmas is over for another year and though I expect most of you will already have snaffled up any leftovers, there may be just a little turkey still lurking in the fridge/freezer. We always make far too much food at this time of year – it can be quite difficult to judge – but it’s always nice to enjoy cold meats and stuffing in the days following Christmas. Indeed, having Leftover Turkey Curry has become something of a tradition in our house and for good reason! This is a creamy and fragrant curry that packs quite a punch and brings out the best of a meat that can often be quite dry.

Mutter Paneer

Mutter Paneer

Paneer is an ingredient common across South Asian cuisine. It has, for instance, played a role in Indian cuisine – notably North Indian – for centuries, despite Indian food being particularly prone to development and change. Mutter Paneer, paneer with peas, is perhaps the best known of all these dishes – especially in the West – and since it’s such a quintessentially Indian ingredient, it seemed offensive to ignore paneer any longer!

Yaki Udon

Yaki Udon

Udon are a type of thick white Japanese noodle, made of wheat flour and most commonly used in soup – kake udon – though they have many other applications besides. Yaki udon simply means ‘fried udon’ and it can be made according to many different recipes – no two recipes for yaki udon that I’ve seen have been the same. This fact makes it a perfect candidate for culinary exploration and experimentation. However, in this case I thought it best to go for a simple seasoning of soy sauce, fish sauce and sesame oil as it has yet to fail in the flavour department.
