Almond Biscuits

We found these biscuits in a little cafe near the apartment we used to live in. The biscuits were lovely and super decadent as they were made purely out of almond meal. Unfortunately, they also made a huge dent in our savings at $6 for 4 little biscuits! Continue reading Almond Biscuits

Prawn Koftas Dry or with Gravy

Prawn Kofta curry is the first dish I ever cooked for Mangy when we were dating back in thoooose days, it’s probably the dish that convinced him to marry me! I didn’t have a recipe and sort of made it up as I went. Surprisingly it turned out really well! I never cooked it again, not because I didn’t want to, but simply because for the life of me, I couldn’t remember the recipe! Continue reading Prawn Koftas Dry or with Gravy

Buffalo Prawns

This prawn recipe is incredibly tasty and so easy to prepare. Great as finger food for a party, you’ll have your guests at your feet begging for more! You can cook the prawns two ways, in a really hot pan or on the BBQ. If you’re  using wooden skewers, don’t forget to soak the skewers in water for at least half an hour – otherwise you’re in for a really hot party! Continue reading Buffalo Prawns

Spicy Baked Eggs

I love Ajvar, especially the extra hot variety. This time I thought I’d mix it up with a sweet sauce to mellow the heat a little. The combination is the perfect balance of flavours, and in my opinion, it actually tastes better than regular Ajvar! The sauce goes really well with eggs and this recipe is incredible easy and really impressive. You can prepare multiple serves at a time, so it’ll be great to serve a crowd.

Malai Chicken Tikka

I don’t usually enjoy eating Indian food at restaurants. Over the last couple of years I have developed a typical Indian wife’s ‘my-cooking-is-always-better-than-an-Indian-restaurant’ syndrome. However, I absolutely love malai chicken tikka and it’s one of the few things I look forward to ordering from Indian restaurants. I finally decided that this horrible habit (of eating Indian food at horrible Indian restaurants) simply had to stop.  Continue reading Malai Chicken Tikka
