Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Baby eggplant masala

    • Frogcake on July 12, 2019

      We loved this masala. I had tamarind paste so didn’t need to make the paste and this saved some time. I added about half a cup of mushrooms and sliced an entire orange pepper - items from my fridge that I needed to use - it was about 80 percent eggplant. All other ingredients were added according to the recipe. I just added a squeeze of lemon juice - that elevated the masala to amazing from good.

  • Nadan kozhi curry

    • Frogcake on December 04, 2019

      Great flavours in this curry. I will definitely make this again! I omitted the curry leaves and had to add dried ginger instead of fresh - it’s a terrible compromise but I had none of these essentials in my pantry.

  • Beef curry

    • Frogcake on July 12, 2019

      This is a really good curry - and it does pack a punch! I used pork tenderloin instead of beef. Fabulous served with lemon basmati.
