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.

Stuffed Peppers

Stuffed Pepper

As all my recent posts have contained a sentence that does something along the lines of: ‘I’ve discovered [food x], it’s brilliant, have a recipe,’ one didn’t like to disappoint. For this reason I must divulge the fact that I’ve recently discovered a liking for olives, they’re brilliant, and here comes a nice healthy recipe that uses them perfectly.

Mushroom Risotto

Mushroom Risotto

Another food I’ve been eating more of recently is mushrooms; I think my previous hate for them stems from my youth when I had an egg baguette in which I found, and accidentally ate, a rogue mushroom. However, I am now open to the idea of mushrooms, and this recipe, made up by Katherine makes perfect use of our fungal friends.

Rocky Road

Rocky Road

I returned to Bristol yesterday for my final term of undergraduate university and am working pretty hard on my dissertation which is due in just over a week. All this hard work means I need plenty of sugar to keep me going, so I made a large batch of rocky road the day before my return. This treat is not for the faint hearted, it is packed with sugar and fat, and you don’t need much per day, but in all honesty, could such a combination of ingredients ever taste bad?

Simple White Bread

White Bread

One finds oneself, these days, getting rather sick of all the factory produced bread that litters every supermarket and corner shop in this country. Although it is possible to buy good bread from such places, such loaves tend to be a little on the expensive side. In stark contrast, this loaf is exceptionally good, contains no preservatives and costs next to nothing. It merely requires a little time, but even the effect of this can be lessened by making the dough in advance.
