Bursting with amazing flavours, love the creamy paneer with tangy sauce.
Our first recipe from the new Curry Legend book and it didn’t disappoint!
Lovely creamy curry. Loads of flavour in this dish definitely makes Cauliflower desirable. Quick and easy to make, could easily be a busy weekday meal.
OMG these are mind blowing. Not only its so easy to make, the are so soft. Looks so professional if you want to impress and goes with variety of curries. Even my little fussy eater loves it, Win win.
Like the balance in flavours, very different from my usual curry. Simple yet elegant. Loving my new Curry Legend Veg book, you don't disappoint. I am a fan.
Wow this is really good. Enjoyed them with South Indian Sambar and Coconut Chutney. The whole family loved it. We ate more than the recommended portion size so I doubled it for next time
So glad i ordered 3 portions as now out of stock, Sorry. This was a lovely curry, quick, easy and tasty. Better order things quick as once they are gone they are gone.
I had some Trini Geera Pork left and needed some veg. Out came the I Am a Curry Legend Veg Dishes and I found this EXCEPT I had Broccoli in the fridge. Against the spicy pork, the cashew and coconut with the green veg was stunning.Thanks as ever Spicery. Christopher
SO so easy and yet the very best. I added the tomato slices to add colour. I am already looking forward to leftovers tomorrow. Perfectly absolutely amazingly gorgeous. Christopher
Good enough to eat entirely on its own. BUT we didn't have to as the Spicery had given us other things to try. Loved the tangy lemon with the salty dry roasted nuts. Wonderful. Diet next week - OR the week after!!!!
There seemed to be so little to it that I expected it to be a bit bland BUT OH NO the Spicery got it so right again. I included some spinach and that worked but the mildness allowed the tastes to come through. Reminiscent of Veg Curries in North India. Sublime.
The combination of the flavours were just right. I have loved Egg Curries for well over 60 years but this was one of the very best. I will definitely be making this again - and again - and AGAIN
Veggie daughter joined me for Xmas. So Sprout Thoran, Brinjal Bhaji, Carrot Sambal and Kachumber joined a veg pie and gravy to let us drink a bottle of lovely red. We raised our glasses to The Spicery!!!! Thank You for it all.
NYE lunch with friends. Granada, Spain. Punjabi Chole Bhature, Gutarati Muthiya, Egg & Potato Biryani, Onion Bhajis, Brinjal Pickle & Mango Chutney.
Not enough mushrooms so added some parsnip and a little spinach. Used baby tomatoes for eye appeal. Served with onion & cucumber Raita and lemon rice. This was a free sample but will be cooked again, there is no doubt.
Both dishes are amazing, I adapted the Prawn Dhansak and used butternut squash (instead of prawns) that I roasted first for 30 mins and then added the lemon juice when it came out of the oven (lemon juice used to marinate prawns in the main recipe!)
Brilliant veggie dish and side dishes went down a treat with the whole family.
The broccoli was way past its prime so out came the book, the spices and some coconut milk. 20 mins later a real delight. Thank you so much lovely Veggie Book
Cracking curry night courtesy of The Spicery. Paneer Tikka Masala, Mushroom Balti, Sag Aloo, Baingan Ka Salan, Coconut Chutney, Onion Chutney and a Mint Raita to help cool things down. Delicious!
Parsnip Masala Dav (P108) with some left over Roast Chicken and without the Bread Rolls. The first Spicery Recipe using all 4 Mixes at the same time. Tasty, great to look at and perfect in every way. Happy to say there's enough for 2 more meals
Garlic Mushroom Balti (p39), Saag Bhaji (p158) with Lemon & Peanut Rice (p166) all from the Veg Book. What a lovely meal, easy to cook and pure heaven to eat. Enough for 2 days in a row. Thank Yoooooo!!!!
First attempt; - Garlic Mushroom Balti - Onion Bhaji - Mango Chutney - Garlic and Coriander Rice..
Onion pakora curry with bhature! My favourite so far from Curry Legend.
Easy to follow recipe and absolutely delicious. Really tasty with complex layers of flavours. The whole family loved it, especially followed with the pistachio barfi with chai.
Well not exactly veggie. Sichuan Dan Dan with Courgette and Leek Kadhi (and added tomatoes for colour) served with some bulgur on the side. The courgettes were made with coconut milk in place of yoghourt and were gorgeous.
Mushroom &Courgette Kadhi (P145) with a red chilli to protect us from vampires and sliced tomato for the eye appeal. As with all the Veg Legend Dishes, it was absolutely scrumptious. None Left!!!
Lamb Balti, Pilau Rice, Bombay Potatoes, Chilli Raita and Cucumber Raita. At home date night was a success! Pleasure to cook together and eat. Food was full of flavour. Can't wait for the next one.
The Lentils make such a difference and create a dish for the Gourmet. Serve it with anything and it finishes off any feast. Pure heaven.
Mother's Day Sunday roast with an Fusion twist. Saag Aloo, Green Peas Masala, Summer Veg Subji and a bit of local asparagus in Asparagus Poriyal. Fusion at it's best!!
Palak Dhal (P122), Garlic Mushroom Balti (P39) & Green Peas Masala (P150). I had never cooked any of them before BUT I most certainly will again. They all went well together too.
No Paneer so as suggested used Eggs with the Asparagus Pasanda (P300. Added cream and roasted almonds on the plate. Served it with a delicious Onion Chutney (P220). what a meal.
Gujurati Dumplings (P96) had too much flour and were solid but the Tomato & Radish Salad (P162) and the Mango Pickle (P212) were total wonders.
Theplas (P182) were mind boggling. How they stay crisp when sauces are poured over (See here with a wee Thali!!!!) I do not know; but the taste was sublime and the crunch ecstatic. Enough dough in the clingfilm for at least another 6. Fab!!!!
Baingan Ka Salan (P56), Tarka Dhal (P132) and Theplas (P182 were joined by a Veggie version of The World's Easiest Curry (Curry Legend Book) & salad. The Aubergine a real eye-opener and the mix was great. As usual the Theplas were extraordinary. What a discovery!!
Today’s lockdown boredom avoidance task. Done and yum!
Moghul Egg Curry (eggcelent) with Saag Aloo (A little bland) Fabulous Onion Chutney and Cucumber Kosambari, all on a chappati. A beer for me and vodka for her ladyship and it all just disappeared. Nothing more to say then!! Lovely Sunday evening meal.
Mixed Veg Curry (P42), Rice & Poppadum with leftover Saag Aloo & Cucumber Kosambari with the fantastic Onion Chutney. So easy to make and perfect. Why would anybody buy it ready made?
My first attempt at: Lime Pickle, Mango Chilli Chutney, Coriabder Mint Raita with Paneer Tikka Masala, Onion Pakora Curry, Saag Bhaji and Beef Seekh Kebabs...all by myself! #morespicesrequired!
Made these for brunch with my husband, delicious and fun to make
Got a bag of the fine asparagus from our local grower, the least popular normally. But with some Spicery magic turned them into a great delicious starter. Much darker looking than the Spicery picture but you can't win them all.
Mango Chilli Chutney (p218) was the afternoons effort as we had a Mango that just had to be used. It seemed a lot of vinegar as we started but with a little extrsa honey the taste was perfect. We will use more Mirchi next time.
Kobi Nu Shaak (P 152) to have with a bought in (Shame on us!!) Samosa and Mango Chutney. The crunch was just perfect and the fresh tastes were right for the summer evening. Thank you again.
Winter Veg Dhansak (P 52) made with half Winter and half Spring Veg. Took a good while to prepare and cook but worth every second. The floured onions from the oven were a magnificent addition. I cooked double the quantity as I guessed it would be fab. I wasn't wrong. Thanks again.
My Punjabi mother would be impressed
A fabulous birthday FEAST with Tarka Dhal, Mixed Veg Curry, Date & Tomato Chutney and Brinjal Pickle, served with mini popadom, onion salad and chapati. Lockdown birthday... done right! :-) We bought the Curry Legends Cookbook and spices for our anniversary in May and are already on our second batch of spice blends!! Highly recommended.
Like the fiery flavours. Simply love it.
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!
Delicious! We use paneer a lot and this has immediately become one of our favourite paneer recipes. Yum!
This is the second book I've bought now - both gifts for budding Uni students to get them started in their new kitchens. They are beautifully presented, have easy but tasty recepits t follow and all the pre-made spice mixes required inside. Just brilliant. I would highly recommend it.
P62 Hyderabadi Egg Curry. Used leeks in place of onion and added Prawns and mushrooms. As soon as it was served it vanished. That says it all. I will have to cook it again to see what happens next time.
Good fresh flavours. We served it with Pea & Mint Rice (which needed a little more cooking than in the recipe). As there's only 2 of us we have plenty for another meal - yay!
Perfect on its own or as a side. Simple, tasty and worth making.
Rich and hearty. Love the dopiaza! Served it with naan, beetroot pachadi and sambar rice. All delicious.
It took some time but was definitely worth every second. A lovely roasted flavour and great on its own with a naan.
Garlic Mushroom Balti (Best Mushroom Dish EVER) and Mixed Veg Avial, boiled in Coconut Milk for even more coconutty flavour. Great combination for a fine meal.
Sweet potato korma (cauliflower korma), Tarka Dhal, mango chutney, kosambari. World vegetarian day! A favourite combination - so very good.
Cauliflower korma, beetroot pachadi, brinjal pickle and mango chutney. A winning combination. World vegetarian day.
The recipe suggested "raising the game" with Mixed Peppers. So I went half way I did the dish with a mixture of peppers and brtown Mushrooms and then added a Leek. Just delicious and I made so much there will be loads in the freezer for a "Rainy Day"
A really complex deeply flavoured but mild sauce surrounding paneer and asparagus which you don’t find in many curries. I omitted the sugar but it was still sweet enough with the yoghurt and cream. Absolutely beautiful!
Paneer tikka masala and accompaniments, stunning!
I had to substitute almonds for the cashews but it was still delicious, though a little on the sweet side with the added coconut milk. Topped off with a simple pickle that I borrowed from another recipe for added heat.
Cooked the winter veg dhansak, cauliflower caldine, sag aloo, lime chutney, pilau rice, and many others.. We had a delicious feast and everything was easy and turned out just as the pictures in the cook book. Can't stop cooking these recipes now as thoroughly enjoyed by all. Never ordering a takeaway again as these recipes are so much nicer! I'm telling everyone about the kits. Easy to order refills. I had the veggie kit for Christmas and I must say it's one of the best presents I have received. I highly recommend that you try them as you do turn into a curry legend!!
Part of today’s lunch extravaganza from the how to be a veg curry legend, page 42.
Wow!!! After a lot of humming and arring on whether to make this we decided to give it a go. It did not disappoint! The recipe was easy to follow and the smells coming from the pan brought the feeling of being back in a restaurant. From the first bite me and my wife wished we had cooked it sooner. If anybody is in two minds whether to try something different just go for it I’m sure you won’t disappointed. Will definitely be reordering this one in the not so distant future.
Delicious curry. We added a dhal as we didn't have a lot of lamb. It was delicious with the homemade naan too!
Delicious!!! Served with butter chicken (but paneer instead of chicken) and kulchas (my favourite!)
Mushroom Keema Leek (p100). Substituted Leeks for the peas from the recipe and added a Nargisi Kofta. So perfect on its own that we didn't need rice or brads with it and look forward to tonight's second helping. A lovely way to use up leeks,
1st recipe from my new book, (lovely gift from my dearest friend) Easy to cook and tasted amazing!
Properly delicious and worth the effort!
Yummy and indulgent! Served with rice and date & tomato chutney
Really nice, personally I'd be tempted to add even more garlic next time to make it bangin!
We both said this was better than a take away. The blends really do give you that rich depth of flavour and authentic taste.
I have made this a few times now and I love it. The garlic hit you get from the fried garlic slices is amazing.
Bonnie’s first taste of paneer! It’s fair to say it was a hit. Also a hit with mummy and daddy as it got lots to greeny goodness into her! No adaptations needed to make it baby friendly! Another successful step in her curry legend training!
Absolutely delicious curry. I will make this again and again. Incredible! The sauce is thickened with cashews nuts giving a wonderful flavour. Highly recommend!
Lovely stuff! Works really well with the veg raita
Great flavours. Light fried breads were not at all heavy. The Barfi were so much more delicious than we expected.
This had an excellent what I call 'effort to deliciousness ratio'!! The dumplings were great, I used spelt flour (adding baking powder as raising agent) and the texture was nice & chewy, almost meaty which made it a good hearty dish. Served here with saag aloo and cabbage & pomegranate salad which I found to be a lovely combo!
Post cold green goodness from the Palak Paneer was just what the doctor ordered! A firm favourite for Bonnie!
This has been a firm favourite with many of my family for a while. However this was the first time I had made it. It was very good indeed. I was able to buy some nice mushrooms and the recipe really did them justice. Thanks Spicery!
This was amazing! I made a vegan version by replacing the paneer with cubed parboiled celeriac and it tasted great - incredible how much flavour permeated the whole thing! Served with hot rajma masala and plain rice. Yum!
We deviated slightly from the recipe by replacing the chilli with cheese (not the most obvious swop!) but these sweetcorn fritter / pakoras were a hit!!!
So tasty and easy to do! My brother said it was 'the best curry he's ever had'. I served it with the Theplas and a glass of dry Riesling
12/2/22 - easy enough to make. Nice with poppadoms
I've loved cooking from the mezze and two curry kits. Our three adult 'children' are all veggies, so I tweaked one of the recipes and cooked a veggie banquet to celebrate my 69th birthday. Pav Bhaji, Veggie Bhuna, Cauliflower Caldine and Dal Bukhara. All delicious. Just ordered the world curry and taco kits !
It’s so easy to make saag aloo - who knew?!
Perfect recipes as always, only if you divert from it do your results not turn out!! Note to self DO NOT DIVERT!!
Have had the original book and spice kit but being vegetarian had to adapt a lot of the recipes, treated myself to the veggie one ,it’s great. Made cauliflower caldine , paneer shaha, mint raita, and chilli pineapple instead of mango chutney all delicious.
Out of this world flavours!
Easy, tasty and as you can see, partners well with Cauliflower 65!
Despite taking a long time this recipe was surprisingly simple to follow, and we made so much that it was perfect for leftovers as well. The crunch of the oniony top layer went perfectly with the fluffy rice, and it was a nice treat to find the eggs and potatoes as we dug in.
I also made a few sides whilst cooking. Clockwise from the left they are …. Kachumber, a perennial favourite, brinjal pickle , a first and very tasty too, and last is cucumber and mint raita from memory but not hard to guess the ingredients…. All 3 complimented the balti and the veg curry!!
This is an impressive looking dish to serve. It is also delicious. The outer crust was slightly hotter than I expected. It wasn't too hot for my wife, who has lower heat tolerance than I, and she really enjoyed it too.
One of these amazing recipes that gives tired veg at the bottom of the fridge the kiss of life! It comes with a 4/5 chilli heat rating for good reason. Tasty, tangy & hot!
