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.

Lemon and Herb Chicken Schnitzel

Lemon Chicken Schnitzel

I think schnitzel is one of the foods people are least likely to make at home. Perhaps they consider it a little complex, or perhaps a bit of a hassle. Whatever is the case, people tend to buy schnitzel, or breaded chicken, frozen from the supermarket. The problem is, it’s not at all difficult to do and really takes very little time; even I was surprised at how simple this recipe turned out to be.

Sausage and Lentil Stew

Sausage Lentil Casserole

Though this stew may not look like something one ought to eat in summer weather, it isn’t quite as rich as your usual stew and has just the right amount of kick to make it a perfectly summery dish. It’s also fairly light, if you use a conservative amount of sausage, because it is almost entirely devoid of carbs. The lightness and abundance of vegetables make it very healthy too.

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.
