Zanzibar was once the biggest producer of cloves in the world and cloves are still a key flavour in the local cuisine. Here they’re used in the fragrant clove masala which is added at the end of cooking to give a lovely depth of flavour. Lots of the food in Zanzibar is spiced up to taste with a fruity chutney served on the side, so we’re making a simple date and tomato version which really brightens everything up as well as adding some extra heat!

Love the familiarity of "Curry" that had a completely different adventure for my taste buds. Fairly modest to cook and the time frame is spot on.
