Making your recipes..

You know I love to make lots of your recipes, I don’t believe in just commenting and then forgetting all about it, I love to go back and make as many as I can..there’s so many fantastic dishes in all of your blogs, it’s impossible NOT to be inspired! 

So this month I’ve made a few different things inspired by you all, including these.. 

This dish was something completely new and completely fabulous! This is ‘kadhi’ a yoghurt curry, it made with yogurt, chickpea flour and spices (including lots of kick ass turmeric! Great for the cold season) and creates a lovely sauce. In Whitney’s recipe she serves it with potato pakoras, I ate mine with roasted chunks of aubergine. It was great day one, and even better the next day!

 This is an Indian dish, made with mung beans, or green gram; for some reason my dish above looks a bit dry but I promise it wasn’t, and it was really tasty. The recipe is from Anjana: GREEN GRAM CURRY {KERALA CHERUPAYAR CURRY}. The Mung beans are really tasty and really easy to cook, I highly recommended trying them. 

This bread is an Algerian bread called ‘khobz tajine’. It is a bread made of fine semolina, yeast and nigella seeds, and cooked in a pan over a medium heat of the hob/stove. It’s a recipe from the lovely Linda from La Petite Paniere, a lovely lady and amazing cook. You really have to check out the wonderful food she makes, especially the pastries and breads! 

Serious food porn! 

I’ve wanted to make ‘pav bhaji’ (pronounced pao bhaji) for a while having seen recipes from many food blogs, including Sonal and Anjana, and my version above was an amalgamation of them all. 

Pav bhaji is Indian street food, and the spiced mashed vegetable curry is typically made with lots of butter, and eaten with sweet bread rolls. I made mine with lots of coconut oil instead of the butter, I used a mixture of cauliflower, white potatoes, sweet potatoes and peas, and ate it with the lovely Algerian bread above.   And doesn’t it all look gorgeous on my new hand thrown crockery from the wonderful Sytch Farm Studios. I am so in love with Gill’s work, she’s an amazing potter, and I am honoured to have some of her pieces in my home. 

I hope I’ve provided you with some lovely inspiration! Have a great week 🙂

    That is what makes you stand out amongst all of us..
    Many of us bookmark each others’ work to try and review but you actually do it!
    I am honored that you chose something from my blog.
    All the dishes look fantastic. Linda’s khobj and Anjana’s green mung curry are on my list too.
    The hand blown pottery definitely caught my eye in each picture, and not to mention all the pictures are simple yet elegant, perfectly taken in bright sunlight!
    Keep inspiring us dear lady!!❤️❤️🙏

    Just lovely and delish! It’s nearly dinnertime here and this post has wakened my appetite. I agree, I love trying out the recipes I come across through blogging. Since I know the recipes are tried and tested, I trust them and really the food blogs I follow have become my go-to for recipes. Like the one of yours I made last week! 🙂 Thanks, Elaine, and hope all is well!

      I absolutely agree, the recipes we share on our blogs are tried and tested in the kitchens of home cooks, not big restaurants or flashy test kitchens, which makes them so much more appealing. I feel like it’s a way to share that space with the creator 🙂
      Thank you for liking the post and for your lovely comment xx

    Just lovely Elaine…..all of the dishes. Indian nosh has got to be my favorite too (but then I’m biased) :). I too love to bookmark and try out other recipes from different bloggers, but it is nice to put them all together in one post, I haven’t done that. Tomorrow I’m featuring another blogger’s recipe that I’ve tried, and you guessed it…. it is Indian :). Great job!

    I made the lovely kadhi this weekend. Since I’m vegan, instead of yogurt, I made a “buttermilk” out of soy milk and lemon (I use a teaspoon of lemon for every one cup of soy milk). I backed off the water, because buttermilk is not as thick as yogurt. Delicious!! I also made the green gram curry (with those mung beans I love so much)! This is our new favorite dish! The house smelled so good with those spices!!
