Masala Chai

Tags: ,

Chai is world renowned for being sweet and spicy.  The masala is usually kept secret and is passed down from mother to daughter.  Here is one of my favourite recipes for creating your very own homemade chai — ssshhh don’t tell my mum I shared it with you!

Roast Salmon with Fennel, Orange & Thyme

Tags: , , ,

This recipe couldn’t be simpler. The delicate flavour of salmon gets a baste with sweet fennel, zesty orange and fiery ginger. Throw in a little soy and some earthy thyme and you’ve got yourself one delicious meal.

King Prawn & Coconut Fry

Tags: ,

When I thought of this recipe I wanted to borrow flavours from the south of India but then add some of the ingredients I love. So here it is…not exactly as you would have it on the shores of India but not that far off.

You can serve this a starter and it will serve 6 – 8 people depending how hungry you are, or as a main course for 4 people.

Crispy Okra

Tags:

Okra, Bhindi, Ladies Fingers, whatever you like to call it – I never enjoyed them much when I was young, but then I tried it like this.

Coriander Sesame Crusted Tuna

Tags: , ,

This recipe has a sort of Japanese feel with a touch of spice. Encrusting the tuna steak with spiced sesame is a wonderful way to add texture and flavour, and I like serving it with some cooling cucumber with a mustard soy dressing. 

Honey Nut Crepes

Tags: , , , , ,

This is a foolproof recipe that you can easily scale up or down. It uses the same quantities of flour, eggs and milk which makes this one of the quickest recipes you’ll ever make.

Aromatic Spice Rub

Tags: ,

If you want to give your meat some extra flavour then the best way is to rub some herbs and spices onto it before roasting. This spice rub is a mix of wonderful aromatic spices that can either be rubbed on as they are or mixed with oil.

Thai Chilli Ginger Mussels

Tags: , ,

Mussels are cheap and available almost everywhere. They taste wonderful with a whole host of flavours but I love them with fiery ingredients like chilli and ginger. 

Smashed Avo on toast

Tags:

This is perfect for brekkie, brunch or as a snack when you fancy something light and healthy. I love to add some warm sweet smoky chorizo for that extra little something.

Ginger Soy Steamed Salmon

Tags: , ,

I love Chinese flavours, and came up with this recipe when I was a student at uni.
