Naan bread is, for me, one of the staples of a good Indian meal. Less rice, more bread; that’s my motto. And it’s a good one. One to live by. Homemade naan bread? Even better. Far better, in fact. Once you’ve learnt to make a good naan bread from the comfort of your home, you’ll never look back.
Courgette and Chickpea Fritters; hardly the most raucously popular Indian snack. Though there’s little doubt the combination has been explored before this point – and it seems one or two recipes do exist – its status must progress. Flavoured correctly, courgette and chickpea fritters have the potential to mount a serious challenge to the kingly onion bhaji. Talk about a constitutional crisis…
For me, the most enjoyable aspect of Indian food – something we indulge in twice weekly – is the sheer variety it presents. You could go for weeks on end and never eat the same dish twice. A recipe for Onion and Carrot Bhajis may not be what you were expecting, but it makes a tempting change from the usual accompaniments.
A popular street food in Mumbai, Pav Bhaji is a vegetable curry served alongside soft bread. As with most Indian recipes – street food or otherwise – it is a dish with innumerable variations. But with variation must come a certain level of consistency, and you can rest assured that Mumbai pav bhaji will regularly contain potato and peas.
Lamb curries are some of my favourites. And this recipe for Lamb Badam Pasanda is at the very top of the tree. Creamy and rich, but very simple to throw together, this cardamom-infused curry is the perfect way to enjoy such a sweet and tender meat.
