I got another recipe book for Grania for her Birthday: Madhur Jaffrey’s World-of-the-East Vegetarian Cooking
It’s been a great resource; even though it’s over twenty years old! We’ve taken some Persian, Thai and lots of Indian ideas from it.
This weekend (as I am going away for most of the week) I cooked up a batch of veggy curries – ranging from spicy chickpeas to a hot madras. I also did a Goan style fish and banana curry – slightly milder, sweeter and suitable for Aoife. Mmmm.
