Kleftiko Potatoes (4)

Here is another recipe for potatoes from Claire Thomson’s ” New Kitchen Basics”. The potatoes cook in the liquid soaking up the juices and turning soft and flavoursome. Any remaining oil should be spooned over the potatoes before serving.

Lentils with Pomegranate and Cashews (4)

My friend Angela introduced me to this colourful and healthy all in one daal from Rukmini Iyer’s ” The Green Roasting Tin”. It was so good i had to cook it myself a few days later, omitting the cashews and serving with sausages. But it is also very good on its own, served with naan or rice. I was a bit doubtful that the lentils would cook properly in the oven, but they were perfect.

Jalfrezi Peppers with Chickpeas (4)

Last nights supper was this easy curry from ” New Kitchen Basics” by Claire Thomson. She suggests serving with plain rice or Indian flatbreads, but i substituted couscous and that worked well. Either way accompany with some Indian chutney and/or pickles if you have them.
