Aloo Gobi

Kidney friendly version, made without salt and lots of ginger, onions and garlic. I added the potatoes/aloo in there in wedges so they cook evenly and also, for them to be easily fished out for those who don't like the gobi. I don't add red chilli powder and only add fresh green chillies for heat, … Continue reading Aloo Gobi

Stir-fried crispy Okra

Ingredients: 250 gms okra (washed, dried completely, then chopped - similar size for even cooking) 1 medium sized onion, chopped finely or into thin short slices 1-2 green … Continue reading Stir-fried crispy Okra

Easy garlicky Aubergine curry

This recipe does not follow normal 'traditional' cooking methods. I make it this way often, as its easy, convenient and its the way I like it.

Spanish style Potatoes

Technically Patatas Bravas are made with a marinara style Bravas sauce and then mayonnaise on top. This version is an improvised attempt, as it's made during lockdown with ingredients that were to hand. Just a different way to enjoy fried potatoes on a Friday evening. Take your normal chippy potatoes, wash, peel and cut them … Continue reading Spanish style Potatoes

Baingan Bhartha

My recipe for this is a little unconventional, but it turns out stupendously amazing every time! So, grab two plump aubergines - secret is to not buy the heavy ones, as they are just full of heavy seeds. The lighter in weight, the better it is. Depending on the size of the aubergines, you will … Continue reading Baingan Bhartha
