Recipe: BBQ paneer tikka

I'm really excited about this recipe. Many reasons. I love paneer, I love marinating, I love BBQing, I love that lovely subtle smoky charred flavour, I love sharing food with friends and family. And this recipe is perfect for all this! And it's dead easy (once you've gathered all your ingredients).

Recipe: Quick and easy chicken tikka

Who doesn't love chicken tikka right? And there are so many different marinades to try out! Though nothing tastes as good as chicken tikka made in a tandoor (a traditional clay oven commonly used in India), a garden BBQ grill comes close, and an electric home oven isn't too bad.  Since this is a quick (if you exclude the marination time) and easy (but delicious) chicken tikka recipe, we'll use our kitchen oven.

Recipe: Spicy fried vegetables

When I plan an Indian menu, I try and do a mix of curry or dal, a side with a thickish sauce, and a dry side. That way, there's something you can eat with rice and chapatti both, without it becoming too wet a meal or too dry. Essentially aiming for a balance of textures on the plate! My uncle was visiting us for lunch today and I knew I wanted to make a khatti meethi dal and palak paneer, but wasn't feeling very inspired about the dry side dish. I had cauliflower stuck in my head, but didn't want to make a boring old gobhi aloo or gobhi mattar. I thought I'd begin by frying some florets and see where that would take me. Turned out to be a really good place :D Here's my spicy fried vegetables recipe. I hope you enjoy it!
