These paneer and potato balls were amazing and really different to our usual curries! The sauce was really flavoursome and I loved the texture from the almonds. We also made plain and chilli naans which were fluffy and so fresh. Plus the tarka dhal is a delicious side and really easy recipe. This photo also features some homemade mango pickle and M&S's Indian selection bits (hopefully will make our own samosas soon!). Thanks Spicery!

Stunning! Our mouths are watering just looking at this picture, we wish we could try some- well done!


Delicious curry. We added a dhal as we didn't have a lot of lamb. It was delicious with the homemade naan too!

This looks delicious, Nicholas, especially that homemade naan - great job!
