Spiced Banana Tarte Tatin

This is an example of a dessert we used to serve in Cinnamon Kitchen and shows how we gave a popular European dessert an Indian spice treatment. This can be a great dessert to prepare for your loved one on Valentine’s Day or of course for any of your other dinners. It is actually not Read More

Serves 4 Ingredients: 250g grated cottage cheese 2 large boiled potatoes, grated 100g spinach leaves washed, dried and shredded 2.5cm piece of fresh ginger; peeled and finely Read More

I’m delighted to be on the Christmas episode of Saturday Kitchen upcoming weekend. Christmas is possibly one of my favourite times of the year together with the feasts that are associated with it. The bit I am most thrilled about though, is being on the show alongside my personal food hero Rick Stein.  I have long been Read More

December – Dry-Spice-Crusted Guinea Fowl With Yellow Lentil Sauce

This is a modern interpretation of a typical, everyday Indian dish of dal-roti and kukkad – i.e. lentils, bread and country chicken. Even though guinea fowl became more and more available all year round, I still think the winter season is great for cooking with poultry and game. Serves 4 Ingredients: 4 guinea fowl breasts, Read More

November – Charred Pork Ribs With Hot-And-Sweet Glaze

For the month of November I am sharing this finger licking delicious Charred Pork Ribs recipe. This method of double cooking ribs – first cooking in liquid and then grilling – gives a fantastic silky, fall-off-the-bone texture and deep rich flavours. Yes, you can argue that the spicing is quite Chinese, but, hey, it’s the Read More

October – Carrot Halwa Spring Rolls

Carrot halwa in its traditional form must be India’s most recognisable dessert as it is cooked in most Indian homes in winter. Carrot halwa is a great dessert for for instance Diwali and it is not very difficult to make. Serves 6 Ingredients: 60g ghee or clarified butter 250g regular carrots, peeled and grated 250g Read More

September – Assamese Stir-Fried Mushrooms With Egg-Fried-Rice Parcels

A Chinese influence is evident in this vegetarian feast, but the most distinguishing feature of the dish is the thin omelettes we make to envelop the stir-fried rice. The mushrooms on their own are also good to pass round as a snack with drinks. Serves 4 Ingredients: 700g shiitake, chestnut or closed-cup mushrooms, stems removed, Read More

August – Spice Crusted Halibut in Green Spiced Sauce

This is my take on a tandoori fish tikka traditionally served with green chutney. Only difference being we are using larger cut of fish, marinated using the same techniques but cooked in an oven and the coriander and mint chutney is transformed into a hot sauce. Served along with lemon rice, it makes for a Read More
