Last night my father-in-law came over for an evening meal, and I decided to make curry.
Feeling bored with my usual repertoire of Indian food, I made some different things, all of which were extremely tasty and went over a treat.
On the menu was matar mushroom (mushroom & peas curry), rajma chawal (kidney bean curry), aloo dum (potato curry) and simla mirch bharata (bell peppers with garlic curry). Also rice, papadums, and store-bought samosas and pakoras.
The mushroom/pea, kidney bean and potato curries were all from a fab site I just discovered, Manjula’s kitchen. Not only does the website have full detailed recipes, but also video tutorials of “Auntie” Manjula demonstrating exactly how to make each dish. I know I will be visiting this site regularly.
The bell pepper curry was from one of my Indian vegetarian cookery books whose name escapes me at the moment.
A very successful meal and one which we be having again tomorrow as there were lots of leftovers. Thank you, Auntie Manjula!
