Onion & Tomato Curry

Sunday, January 4th, 2009

Another very simple and tasty curry, it is just amazing how any kind of vegetable can be made into a curry. Just by adding the basic spice mix to the vegetables and letting them cook to absorb the flavours it turns into a magical meal. This curry goes well as a extra curry to a large meal or makes a quick and simple meal in a few minutes. I think it takes more time to prepare for this curry then it takes for it to be cooked.

Sugar snap Peas Curry

Sunday, January 4th, 2009

I remember when we were growing up in Malawi we used to grow our own vegetables, and always used to enjoy cooking the first crop of peas into this curry. It is a good combination of sweet and spicy flavours and is another simple curry that is good to serve as a main or accompanying another curry. Over the holiday period my son was taught a particular song about peas from his Montessori for his performance, and he regularly kept on singing that. So it was quite appropriate to have the curry and let him sing the song.

Sugar snap peas are also known as mange tout and are eaten with their pods.

Savoury Filling

Monday, November 24th, 2008

This is a very versatile mix that can be used in many combinations and different dishes.  I use this mix for a savoury pancake filling, pies, and wraps. It is a very easy recipe, the only effort is chopping the vegetables 🙂   Use your imagination and the possibilities are endless.

I first had something similar to this when we were invited over for dinner by one of my husband’s niece.  I thought it was quite clever to roast the vegetables without marinating, and have the simple flavours.  Then a few years later, when I was in a rush, I had some vegetables that I tossed into a frying pan and let them cook on a high flame and they tasted quite good. They became a little caramelized and spicy because of adding the chilli sauce at the end.

Give it a go and tell me how you liked the recipe and also what you used it in.
