Keema Indian Street Food
This is a wonderful eat anytime curry adapted from a recipe by Pat Chapman of The Curry Club. The curry is so easy to make and will be loved by all. I added chickpeas to my version as I love them but you could add peas which is more traditional.

Indian Roast Beef and Vegetable Curry

A Bowl of Pumpkin and Apple Soup

A Bowl of Pumpkin and Apple Soup
This is a wonderful soup (based on a Keith Floyd recipe from his trip to Africa) to serve on Halloween or bonfire night. The recipe will fill a 4.5L Mr D’s Thermal Cooker but it can easily be halved if you are feeding less people. I used for mine a chicken stock I had saved from cooking a chicken in my thermal cooker earlier in the week but you can if you wish use chicken stock cubes or vegetable stock cubes if you want a vegetarian version.

Indian Roast Beef & Vegetable Curry
It is just over a year since I started sending out weekly recipes and to celebrate I have made a recipe adapted from one by Atul Kochher one of only two Indian Chefs in the world to be awarded a coveted Michelin Star. I decided to serve with Atul Kochhars Indian Roast Beef a South Indian vegetable curry which I made in the top pot. If however you do not have a top pot then you can increase the size of beef and increase the beef stock a little. The beef is left to thermally cook for as long as possible to make it so it melts in the mouth. This recipe is certainly worth trying and don't be put off by the amount of garlic and chili as both these mellow during the long, long cook.

A Golden Saffron Chicken Curry
This dish is based on a recipe from one of my favourite cookbooks "curry, curry curry" by Ranjit Rai. I have made a few alterations and added the potatoes. In his book Ranjit Rai says that he is not sure if the dish came from Spain or went to Spain but no matter, if you like saffron this is certainly one try.
