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!

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!
Potatoes cooked with cumin seeds. An easy and delicious Indian side dish.
For me the highlights of travelling are the food and the photo opportunities! And there is something very exciting about learning to cook local food in a local kitchen using traditional ingredients. Here's one of my favourite Vietnamese recipes. Tried and tested! Serves 4, as a side dish
