Chana masala (Chole) (1) by offmessage

Inspired by a recent trip to the amazing Bundobust I had to see if I could recreate their Chole Bhature. This is just the Chole, I'll leave you to work out the flatbreads youselves! There are some faffy things in this one - you need a wet/dry grinder (incredibly useful for lots of indian cooking) an...

Moong Dhal with Mushrooms (1) by offmessage

A really satisfying warming vegetarian dish that makes two generous portions. No need for any accompaniments, just this will do. Moong dhal (yellow splite peas) used to be difficult to find, but any large branch of the main UK supermarkets stock them now, and their nutty flavour is a real bonus in t...

Fungaloo Vegan Country Pie by offmessage

It was the Isotoma Bake Off a couple of weeks ago. I entered the Hot Water Crust pastry category, with the added complication of wanting to make my entry vegan. So a mildly curried potato and mushroom pie was born.

Filthy filthy chocolate tart (1) by offmessage

This is seriously chocolatey. Like pornographically chocolatey. Definitely a special occasions dessert.

Paneer and lentil one pot curry (1) by offmessage

Vegetarian. Full of protein. Ludicrously filling. 600 cals if you eat half, 400 if you split it into three (still massive) portions.

Murgh (Chicken) Masala by offmessage

Rich, creamy curry that can be made anything from beautifully mild to fiery hot. The recipe here is fiery hot, but by taking out some, any or all of the fresh chillies and cayenne pepper you can balance the heat to your taste. It's simple to make, too, and there's no marinading required. Each servin...

Bakewell Tart (1) by offmessage

It's hard to argue with a Bakewell Tart. One of my first forays into pastry (inspired by the GBBO, obviously); it's absolutely gorgeous!

Chickpea curry forked from hlpetrie

This is one of my favourite curries. It’s a wonderful example of how Indian food can have very rich, spicy flavours without being over-poweringly chilli-hot. Made with the amounts of spices given here, it’s medium spicy. It also tastes better if it mellows for a day or so. It's an evolution of a...

Chicken Curry (Karhai Murgh) (1) forked from Row

Adapted from the recipe in Madhur Jaffrey's Curry Bible, this is one of her few recipes that doesn't require marinading. Which is great if you're a disorganised cook (like me).
