Chicken Vindaloo (3) by offmessage

Hot, sharp, genuinely interesting; this isn't as hot as its British curry house counterpart. Instead this is based on more traditional recipes (primarily this one at Aayi's recipes). Worth noting that, whatever we may have been led to believe, the aloo in vindaloo doesn't mean potatoes. Instead it...

Spinach Bhaji (5, 3 new) forked from winjer

Spinach is a fantastic vegetable, rich in lots of marvellous vegetably goodness, and very tasty to boot. This is a great way of serving it as a side dish to a curry. The big problem with spinach is it's uncooked bulk - really you want a 1/2 pound to a pound of spinach per person for this dish, w...

Sweet Onion and Chicken Curry (3) by offmessage

An almost dry dish with very little sauce. This is beautifully balanced; the heat from the chillis is offset nicely by the sweetness of the onions and coriander, making for a really interesting and quite subtle set of flavours. It's really easy to make too, with only a little prep and a short cooki...

Brinjal (Aubergine) Bhaji (3) by offmessage

A sumptuous side dish; rich and filling. The richness and oiliness make it hard to eat a lot of this dish, but it acts as the perfect foil for sharper dishes. Absolutely gorgeous. This is a simplification of the Boorani recipe in the indispensable Madhur Jaffrey's Curry Bible.

A really fresh and spicy rice dish. The ginger and peppercorns both provide a sharp heat that makes a perfect foil for a rich chilli based dish.

Spicy Green Beans (2) by offmessage

Simple way of preparing green beans, inspired by Hawthorne's comments on my Lemon and Coriander Chicken recipe. Subtle flavours make this a suitable accompaniment to pretty much any dish.

Sour Baked Chicken Curry (3) by offmessage

There's no question that this dish splits people in two. Those that like a little soured yoghurt, and those that don't. I cooked this for Claire and she simply refused to eat it due to there being nothing to temper the sourness of the yoghurt. Personally I really like it, but you have been warned...

Cabbage Sabzi (3) by offmessage

This is a really interesting way to serve cabbage that not only goes perfectly with curries but any robust food (a nice lamb stew, for instance). Because of the way it cooks down you'll need more cabbage than you think.

Hot Spicy Chicken Curry with Yoghurt (3) by offmessage

This is a hot curry with a really satisfying thick sauce. The fennel seeds, garam masala and fresh coriander are vital to the flavour, balancing out the heat with a touch of aniseed and sweetness. Serve with naan bread and daal.
