Charro beans are smoky, savoury, spicy pinto beans. Perfect as a side to any BBQ or Mexican meal. Bacon, tomatoes, chipotles, onion and garlic. Hello tasty.
I think beans are the perfect side for BBQ. Real BBQ I mean. Low and slow. Ribs. Brisket. Chicken. Hot links. Charro beans are more Mexican than Texas. But I don’t care. They work. They work well.
Nearly restaurant style Chettinad chicken curry is loaded with big South Indian flavours. Coconut. Green chilies. Curry leaves. And just the right amount of spice.
I love bun cha. Vietnamese grilled pork and rice noodle salad. The moist and flavourful pork. The cool rice noodle and fresh herb salad. And the nuoc cham. That magic balance of spicy, sweet, sour and salty. It’s just perfect for dinner on a warm summer night.
Thai beef stir fry is long on big south east Asian flavours but short on cooking time. It’s perfect for a weeknight meal when ho hum just isn’t going to cut it.
If you like lentils this is a dish for you. Bengali masoor dal belongs on the menu whenever you are cooking Indian for dinner. Creamy texture. Bold flavours. Who cares that it’s healthy? It’s just delicious.
