Egg and Lentil Curry with Coconut and Pickled LimeServes 2

Egg and Lentil Curry with Coconut and Pickled Lime

This is one of my very favourite storecupboard recipes. If you always keep a stock of spices and lentils handy and a pack of creamed coconut stashed away in the fridge, you can whip this one up in no time at all. It also happens to be inexpensive and

Chickpea, Chilli and Coriander Cakes with Marinated Red Onion SaladServes 6 as a starter or 4 as a main course

Chickpea, Chilli and Coriander Cakes with Marinated Red Onion Salad

These are served at Norwich City Football Club and are always enjoyed by vegetarians and meat-eaters alike. They can be made in advance, if entertaining, and are a brilliant way to incorporate healthy pulses in the diet.

Tunisian Aubergine Salad with Coriander and YoghurtServes 4 as a starter

Tunisian Aubergine Salad with Coriander and Yoghurt

This is my adaptation of an Elizabeth David recipe. I never actually made it from her book, but one of my favourite restaurants, Chez Bruce, in Wandsworth, London, regularly serves it as a first course.

Kedgeree with Kippers

I admit that, having tried kedgeree on several occasions with brown rice, I have now come to the conclusion that it is always better made with white rice (which also happens to be a lot quicker).

Kashmir Spiced PrawnsServes 1

Kashmir Spiced Prawns

This is a fresh, mildly spicy curry – and very quick to make. If you would like it a bit more fiery, I suggest you add ¼ teaspoon of chilli powder. Another point: if you don't want to grind your spices, you can use instead 1 level teaspoon hot curry
