Papaya Chaat (6)

I love to eat chaat as a starter , as part of an Indian meal or even as a salad on its own. This version is from Julie Sahni’s ” Indian Heritage Cookery”. You can replace the papaya with other fruit if wished.

Three Cheese Dauphinoise (4)

The picture says it all. Decadent comfort food from Claire Thomson’s “New Kitchen Basics”. Sometimes you just have to forget about the calories. To be honest it was tough not to eat it all between two of us in one sitting but we managed to restrain ourselves and save half for the next day.

Aloo Chaat Salad (4)

An easy recipe from Claire Thomson’s ” New Kitchen Basics” . You can use other vegetables or fruit in the mix depending on what you have- for example cucumber, mango or pomegranate. Chaat is an Indian Spice blend which can be purchased in some supermarkets as well as Indian stores.
