There's something highly satisfying about chucking all the ingredients into one pot and leaving them to meld into something full of flavour! Less washing-up too...
I've suggested two ways of cooking this delicious, spicy main meal: you can either cook it in the traditional way in a slow oven, or (if you want to cut down on gas or electricity) it can be done on top of the stove by using a little more liquid.
Red cabbage is wonderfully versatile – you can cook it long and slow and it seems to go on improving, or in the recipe below the opposite: fast cooking to retain some crunchiness and bite. Either way the apples and spices are essential.
Serve this lovely supper dish with rice or noodles and enjoy the sweet spiciness of the paprika with soured cream and vegetables.
A lovely baked Indian chicken recipe, all this needs is some pilau rice and mango chutney for a warming midweek supper. Make sure you allow a few hours for the chicken to marinate before cooking.
The golden rule of stir-frying rice successfully is to always make sure the cooked rice is absolutely cold. In other words, you can't boil it and stir-fry straight away because it goes all sticky.
Dhal is simply the Indian word for lentils. The best kind to use for this are the red split lentils which most supermarkets stock.
The most important point to remember if you want to fry rice successfully is that it must be cooked but cold, so you must cook the rice ahead and then allow it to cool completely. I have used authentic Chinese ingredients here
