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).
Summer is officially here. Who cares if it's been raining non-stop for the last 24 hours. We've bought (and finished) our first watermelon of the season. So large, I had to stand on tippy toes to get a picture of it!
My husband likes working with big things and tools, so out came a giant knife and a huge bag of ice, and some rummaging in the fridge, clanging and whirring later (times like this I pretend I can't see or hear anything - best not to get involved for fear of giving myself a heart attack at the sight of the colossal mess that is my kitchen when Arunn is in it!), I'm presented with the most delicious glass of watermelon punch.
Here's his recipe that he was delighted to share.
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!
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.
