Want the comfort of a nice pasta al forno but you don’t have time to make anything fancy? Baked pasta with sausage alfredo sauce is a fast way to get a fix. Simple. Fast. Easy. Sausage and a bit of crushed red chili kick the flavours up a notch. It’s an Italian spin on mac and cheese with pulled pork.
A good home-style Indian curry is a wonderful thing. Chettinad chicken curry is a South Indian curry rich that hits all the right notes. Coconut milk, spices, chili and curry leaves come together to make a complex, satisfying meal. Like your mom used to make. Well, like my mom used to make anyway.
