Private Dinner Party, Curry evening, Hampshire


Tonight, I cooked up some of my favourite food. I have a lot of passion for Indian cuisine and really enjoy making all my spice blends from whole spices and fresh ingredients. I made my own bhaji recipe which went down really well with the piquant mango salsa, offering bursts of sweetness and hot chilli.  My variation on Indian bread was made with self raising flour and yoghurt, flavoured with fresh garlic, ginger, coriander and whole cumin and coriander seeds. The pork came out of the oven really tender after cooking for four hours at a low temperature, the aromatic spices filling  the room. The dessert was really refreshing, cleansing the palette after a beautifully spiced meal.
