Of the many, many Spicery recipes I’ve cooked over the past few years, this is my absolute favourite....it was love at first taste! It’s super easy to cook and is packed full of flavour and colour. It’s the perfect dish to share with friends and always goes down a storm.

This looks delicious Helen! Thank you for sharing- it's a favourite here at Spicery HQ too!

Amazing! Maybe needs a little bit more water than stated but that’s easily done

This looks delicious, Kim - a fabulous fusion of Indian and Spanish flavours!
