Indian spiced chicken wings with tamarind dipping sauce pack tons of flavour into what is already the world’s most perfect food. I mean seriously – what’s better than chicken wings?

Chorizo potatoes. This is a riff on patatas bravas – one of the most famous tapas dishes of all time. It’s famous for a reason. It’s really good. But jack up the flavour with some chorizo. Drizzle it with some homemade aioli or garlic mayonnaise. That’s great.
Kachumber is a great Indian salad waiting to be discovered. Tomatoes, cucumber, onions and the bright tastes of cilantro and mint kicked up with a little green chili. Like a Greek salad jacked up with Indian flavours. Perfect counterpoint to a curry or two.
