Cauliflower with Roasted Cumin
Adapted from a recipe in Tamasin Day-Lewis’ evocative West of Ireland Summers. Very good served with Mughali Chicken and Chickpea and Tomato Curry.
Chickpea and Tomato Curry
This recipe was adapted from a wee Family Circle Step-By-Step Indian Cooking book that I picked up for 50c in the charity shop. Very good served with Mughali Chicken and Cauliflower with Roasted Cumin.
We were having five people over for dinner on Saturday night and, as I was digging through the cookbooks looking for inspiration, the boyfriend asked if I had ever cooked an Indian curry from first principles. Well, with a challenge like that it didn’t take me too long to dig out a few recipes that I’d been wanting to try for a while.
The countdown is nearly over and this Friday sees the opening of the Christchurch based Savour New Zealand foodies masterclass – by NZ Prime Minister Helen Clark, no less. I can’t imagine her Irish counterpart, Taoiseach Bertie Ahern, opening such a thing in Ireland unless, of course, it was a pub in Drumcondra and there was a pint of Guinness in it for him.
The other night I was trying to take the boyfriend out to dinner but, after ringing a few restaurants only to be informed that they were booked solid, I soon gave up that idea. So it had to be something special from our own kitchen then.
