I know I should really stop moaning about the heat but it really is far too deserving of a good moan! 💦 You’d think it’s too hot for an Indian meal right? So here’s a recipe packed with all those gorgeous flavours but also quick, easy, healthy and refreshing! All you need are some fluffy chappatis and a bowl of raita to accompany it. Or dal and rice!

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).
One week to Easter and I had to make an eggy contribution! Here's a tasty and not very difficult egg curry recipe, South Indian style :)
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.
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!
