Tonight i made a curry

Tonight i made a curry

1 1/2 cups brown bismati rice
1/4 tsp fenugreek seeds
1/2 tsp onion seeds
1 tbsp nut oil
1 tsp chilli powder
1/2 tsp turmeric
2 cloves garlic
350g quorn chicken pieces
2 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp coriander seeds
100g creamed coconut
1 medium aubergine
1/2 cauliflower
2 tbsp desiccated coconut
2 tbsp flaked almonds
fresh coriander

Place the rice with three cups or water in a covered pot and bring to the boil. Drop the temperature to allow if to simmer. Whilst you are making the curry, keep an eye on the pot. When the water has vanished and the rice looks pitted like the surface of the moon, remove from heat and allow to steam until you are finished making the curry.

Heat the oil in a deep frying pan. Add the fenugreek and onion seeds for a few minutes. Lower the heat and add the turmeric and chilli powder (i'm no fan of incendiary curry, so this is fairly weak). Crush the garlic directly into the pan. Stir the spice and oil mixture thoroughly, before adding Quorn pieces whilst continuing to stir. The Quorn pieces should be fully coated in the mixture.

Next, dissolve the creamed coconut in about 200ml of boiling water and then grind the cumin and coriander seeds in a mortar and pestle. Be sure not to let the curry dry out, or stick to the pan whilst you do this.

Dice the aubergine into pieces of around 1cm square and break the cauliflower into small florets. Add them to the pan along with the ground seeds and desiccated coconut. Give it all a good stir then pour over the dissolved coconut. Cover and then leave to simmer for about 5-10 minutes.

Place the flaked almonds in a dry pan and heat until they start to brown.

Once the curry is cooked, serve on a bed of bismati rice with the toasted almonds and fresh coriander as garnish

Macaroni and Cheese with Bratwurst

Macaroni and Cheese with Bratwurst

Based on a recipe in a "Food and Cooking" magazine.

1lb pasta
6 tablespoons butter
1 small onion
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
6 tablespoons flour
3 cups milk, heated
1 cup sour cream
1 lb mature cheddar, grated
1/2 lb swiss cheese, grated
1/2 teaspoon worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon hot sauce
1/2 cup panko
1/2 cup parmesan cheese

butter or oil for greasing the baking pan

Put oven on at 400 F, and fill a large pot with water, salt generously, and heat on high.

Melt butter over medium heat. Add onions and salt. Saute for a few minutes, stirring occasionally, until the onions have softened. Add the flour and stir. Add the mustard and combine.

Slowly add the warm milk, whisking to prevent lumps from forming. Once all the milk is incorporated, add the sour cream, and mix in. Let simmer over low heat for a few minutes.

While the sauce simmers, add the pasta to the boiling water and cook for the recommended amount of time, or slightly less.

Add the worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, and the cheese. Stir to combine. Taste the sauce and adjust seasonings as necessary.

Add the pasta to the cheese sauce.

Butter or oil a 9" x 13" baking dish. Pour the pasta and cheese sauce into the baking dish. Cover with a layer of panko, then a layer of grated parmesan.

Bake for about 15-20 minutes, or until the top is lightly browned.

(We got impatient and took it out of the oven before it was quite browned enough. :)

Domino recipe week-- lemon-chicken kebabs-- before the grill

Domino recipe week-- lemon-chicken kebabs-- before the grill

This week, in honor of the late, great Domino magazine, I'm making all of the recipes that appeared in their last issue.

Here we have some chicken kebabs with lemon, lemon leaves and artichoke hearts prepped for the grill. The suggested side is roasted fingerling potatoes.

Verdict: Hm...seasonings are sort of bland...except for those lemon leaves!...easy to make...but I probably won't make this again...I'll definitely be experimenting with lemon leaves in soups or in parchment with baked fish, etc. The flavor is more green and less acidic. I've never thought to cook with lemon leaves before. Big points for originality.

The original recipes from Domino were courtesy of food stylists, Alison Attenborough and Jamie Kimm. They have a new cookbook out with Williams-Sonoma called 'Cooking for Friends,' a 'Domino staff favorite.' Already missing you, Domino staff!

UPDATE: I just had some of this as leftovers and the chicken tasted great when eaten with the grilled Meyer lemon-- fruit, peel, and all. The tricky thing with kebabs is to get all of the ingredients cooked to a nice place. Our lemons weren't grilled enough to eat the first time around because the chicken would've been too dry, but on reheating, the lemons were tasty to eat, and complimented the chicken well. I think I will work with this recipe again.
