Refat, a guest cook through our charity connection with Bristol Refugee Rights, cooked this meal for us here at The Spicery and it was an instant favourite with the team! Murgir jhol is a classic Bangladeshi chicken and potato curry which is traditionally quite fiery, so we’re serving it here with a poppy seed and cucumber raita to cool it down.

On the side we’ve also got a charred green chilli and coriander chutney, fragrant rose-infused khichdi and delicious and moreish deep fried aubergine topped with tangy chaat masala.
