Butter chicken masala recipe (No artificial colours or flavours)

Cheese chilli toast

Cheese chilli toast is a spicy alternative to the traditional cheese on toast. My version is on Italian ciabatta bread, which will let you explore different parts of the world in one bite. Like many of my recipes this is easy to prepare and cook. It makes a perfect lunch with with a leafy salad but i usually cut it into wedges and serves it as nibbles when my friends come over for drinks. It's a great accompaniment with drinks, always beats the stale salted peanuts and Bombay mix in an Indian household. If find myself walking away because i can't stop myself munching on them (yes i don't have any self control). There are many dimensions cheese chilli toast, the crusty exterior of the ciabatta followed by the soft airiness inside, the crunch from the onions, the freshness from the mint, coriander and finishes with a prominent but not over powering heat from the green chillies. Cheese chilli toast is rather simple to make as most of the ingredients are usually what you have in the fridge and pantry.

lamb keema with peas and mint

This recipe comes from my family archive. The recipe is identical to the version i grew up with and always tasted amazing when my dad cooked it. It's very much a traditional Punjabi (North Indian) dish and i recall my dad and his friends eating platefuls of the keema to accompany their Blue label. A pleasant trip down memory lane. The dish is aromatic, flavoursome, and one of my top ten. The combination of lamb, peas and mint lifts this dish to new heights. A must try, and i'm sure it'll be in your top ten too.

Indian French toast

Quick and easy to make, I would go as far as saying Indian French toast aka Indian eggy bread is quite a universal dish. You can eat it anytime, breakfast, lunch, dinner or as a snack. The balance of eggs, bread and spice is perfect. Just the name Indian eggy bread makes my mouth water. It's helped me through some very hard times such as unexpected lunch guests, lazy Sunday brunches, and the hardest of times the dreaded hang over. I've eaten variations of eggy bread all my life, even my family in rural India love this dish. Obviously every Indian has their version and as humble as all Indian's are their recipe is always better. I disagree, my recipe is (Yes i'm a humble Indian too). Give this recipe a try, i'm sure you'll love it and give me your feedback!

Masala corn chaat

Masala corn chaat is a quick easy recipe when you're feeling peckish, a snack or giving your mouth an explosion of flavour. I first tried masala corn chaat whilst on holiday in India, the crunch of peanuts, the sourness of the lime and mango powder, the heat from the chilli and the sweetness of the sweetcorn sends your tastebuds on a journey you'll want time after time. My recipe for masala corn is quite simple and easy but packed full of flavour. You must try this!!
