One-Pot Autumn Chicken and Rice

One-Pot Autumn Chicken and Rice

Today’s weather, okay let’s be honest the weather for the last few weeks has been damp with that distinctive chill in the air. The type that makes you feel cold, urging you eat something warm and delicious, but must be easy. This One-Pot Autumn Chicken and Rice is just that. It is truly spectacular. Oh, did I mention this is easy?

Samosa Inspired Savoury Veggie Cakelettes

Samosa Inspired Savoury Veggie Cakelettes

I think for me the sign of a good cook is someone who is able to breathe life into leftovers or turn scraps into something marvellous. I am enamoured by cooks like my mom, who, (after six decades of cooking) constantly attempt to reinvent food and transform leftovers into delicious creations.

Monsoon Chermoula

Monsoon Chermoula

If you read any of my food stories, you will know I look at well used ingredients in different ways. I change the preparation and remain open to the interpretation. In case of staples like garlic, chillies, turmeric, cilantro are used frequently, if not daily, in my kitchen. What I love is when I transform them in new and exciting ways.

Carrot Ribbon Salad

Carrot Ribbon Salad

In another life, I must have been a professional picnic-er. Perhaps in a mediterranean locale? Wishful thinking on my part. My rationale: I am obsessive about al fresco dining.

This Carrot Ribbon Salad is perfect alfresco-esque fare (even if it is indoors) because the dressing melds perfectly with airy strands of carrots.

Spring Harvest Chapati Salad

Spring Harvest Chapati Salad

This salad transforms day-old chapatis into crunchy wisps combined with fresh spring produce, and a mouthwatering cilantro dressing.
Every time April rolls around, usually around Vaisakhi (they don’t call it a harvest festival for nothing), I remember what it’s like to eat fresh delicious produce. Fresh spinach, cilantro, vine grown tomatoes and cucumbers don’t even know much they’ve been missed.
