Madras Chicken Roast

This is one of my favourite chicken recipes. It’s really easy to prepare but so tasty that one would think you’ve spent hours toiling away in the kitchen. I’ve used a home made Masala Podi (will post the recipe soon), but you could easily substitute with your favourite garam masala. Try this at home, I’ll guarantee that you’ll never look at chicken the same way again.  Continue reading Madras Chicken Roast

We’ve been away on holidays and it has been so difficult getting back into a routine of cooking and housework. All I want to do is laze around in post-holiday bliss. Not having the motivation to cook doesn’t mean we don’t have the motivation to eat. Unfortunately for us, post-holiday also means it is time to curb the spending, so going out for dinner last night wasn’t an option. I made some grilled cheese sandwiches and they were a hit with very little effort required! Continue reading Grilled Chilli Cheese Sandwich
