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

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

April – Baby Aubergines with Sesame and Tamarind Sauce

Otherwise known as ‘baghare baingan’, my April recipe is one that has different versions all over India, but the most popular one is from Hyderabad. It has rich, deep, earthy notes, and some recipes use fat green chillies alongside aubergines, or even include lamb’s liver in the sauce. The term ‘baghare’ refers to the tempering Read More
