Spicy Egg Curry / Anda Curry Recipe

Remember I made that bowl of delicious and comforting spaghetti in marinara and fresh basil? There was a cup worth of marina leftover from it. Instead of throwing it away or making a round of pasta, I turned it into a spicy egg curry. Everyday anda curry is one of my favourite dishes. Very easy to make and is ready in a matter of minutes. By adding chilli powder and meat masala or garam masala, the marinara isn’t marinara anymore. A great way to use up leftover sauce is to turn it into something completely different.

Chicken Tikka Masala Recipe

If you look up the recipe for chicken tikka masala, the first page of Google will be filled with recipes from the US or the UK. That’s because of what we already know – chicken tikka masala originated in the UK. Chicken is first grilled or roasted and then dunked in a tomato curry laced with cream. I did a milder version of this though. No cream and with little butter, this tikka masala tasted restaurant like. Alright, not restaurant like but very close. Special thanks to my air fryer that made the chicken roasting easy.

Easy Chilli Chicken Recipe

For those days in the middle of the week when you feel like ordering in because you’re too lazy to cook, or want something spicy, this chilli chicken is perfect. I didn’t plan for it. I was going to order in some greasy Chinese on a cold weeknight. But I remembered I had some boneless chicken marinating in the fridge and that I should use it before it goes bad or something. The marinade was just ginger garlic paste and some paprika. Simply pan roast the chicken with onions and capsicum with soy, hoisin or honey, chillies and crushed pepper. It’s alright if you haven’t marinated it as well. Best part – it comes together in under 20 mins!

Pear and cinnamon cake recipe

I’ve recently warmed up to pears and what I usually do is cut them up, squeeze a lemon and chill them in the fridge before eating. There was one large pear sitting in my fridge and I figured I’d bake with it. I’ve always loved how sliced fruit is arranged on top of the cake in absolute symmetry looking nothing short of perfect. No, mine didn’t look like that. But it sure tasted pretty prefect. I have also realized how cream cheese can keep a dry cake moist and not add any of its strong flavour into it. I’ve only used yoghurt previously for the same purpose.

Shakshuka | Eggs poached in spicy tomato sauce

Shakshuka

Edit:

Last night I made shakshuka and instead of having it with roti, rice or bread, I teamed it with steamed zucchini ribbons. This makes for a light and healthy dinner. The ribbons were made using a vegetable peeler. As simple as that. Then simply plonk them into boiling water for about 3-4 minutes and drain. Top with shakshuka and feta cheese (optional).

This is embarrassing, but I believed I came up with this egg dish. Turns out, it was always around and it’s Shakshuka. Well, a kind of Shakshuka. Either way, it’s one of my favourite breakfast/lunch dishes. Eggs are always a hit. Be it fried, as an omelette, scrambled or even poached. This one is perfect for a weeknight dinner because it comes together in less than 20 minutes and with very few ingredients. Of course, you add more veggies and herbs to it to make it all the more delicious and filling. Scoop it with some pita or bread for best effect. But you can settle for rice too, like in my household. Leftovers can turn into breakfast. See what I mean when I said it was perfect.
