Gunpowder potatoes are India’s spicy, wonderfully delicious answer to chili cheese fries or poutine. Not as messy, but just as tasty.
Sometimes light, clean tastes are best. Mediterranean quinoa salad is a fresh and summery dish that’s loaded with flavour. It’s Peru meets Greece in a bowl. And it’s super easy to make. It’s great with grilled chicken or lamb. If you’re into making board sauces when you grill the mix of flavours is fantastic. Tastes like summer to me.
Sag aloo. Spinach and potato curry. Simple. Vegan. Spinach, potatoes and Indian spices. Delicious. It makes a great vegetable accompaniment to any Indian dinner.
Best potato salad – that’s a very big claim. Maybe it’s not the best but it’s up there. Something about the tang of the sour cream and the salty crunch of the pickles comes together beautifully.
There is something magical about a great bowl of Japanese ramen noodle soup. It’s absolutely wonderful. If you’ve never had good ramen go out and get some. Just do it. Today. Noodles. Broth. Pork. Egg. Wow. If the noodles are the backbone, the tonkotsu ramen broth is the heart and soul.
Tarka dhal. That wonderful, creamy, spiced lentil dish that goes beautifully with every Indian meal. And yet, it’s not one that springs to mind when you think curry. It should be.
