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

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
