One of the most fun things about camping has been the outdoor cooking experience. There is something very comforting about watching campfires dotting a field, as the sun starts to go down, while you're huddled over your own (blowing and coughing and sputtering, and fanning frantically. I just ruined the mood there didn't I? Sorry!). Over the last few years we've made our fair share of meals over a campfire and on our handy portable hob (purchased after much research. About as much as went into buying the cute camp cooking set and toaster!).
If you're a camping newbie, here are 5 really easy and tasty camping recipes.
You must know by now that I really love a toast with toppings. I've shared my all-in-one grilled toast recipe a few months ago, and also my avocado toast recipe and sesame prawn toast recipe. This cheese corn toast is another favourite. And like the ones before, it's quick, simple, and tasty.
Every self-respecting South Indian loves idlis, no? These light and fluffy steamed cakes made from fermented rice and lentils have that perfect mix of protein and carb that you need to kickstart your day, and dunked in sambhar and coconut chutney or slathered with ghee-podi (spice mix powder mixed with ghee), they're superbly soft and delicious. But too much of anything gets boring, and that's when you find yourself staring at your spice shelf and your fridge shelves and pulling open all the condiment drawers and cupboards in your kitchen, wondering what you can do to make things interesting again.
Here are 6 great ways to pimp up your idlis!
A few weeks ago, I shared my chorizo and egg bhurji recipe. I love a good bhurji; you can tweak these Indian spiced scrambled eggs in so many different ways, making for some very yummy and varied brunches. This is my husband's South Indian Egg Bhurji recipe.
Indian scrambled eggs with spices and chorizo. Makes a great topping for toast, perfect for a quick and healthy lunch.
