cauliflower potato and tofu curry

This curry is so lovely and easy to make. Super similar to this garden grown korma recipe…. just with more last days of winter veggies in it. A straight forward vegetarian curry with punchy traditional flavours sowly bubbled on the stovetop for about 45 minutes. Best served with rice and roti.

channa masala guyanna style

My otha’ momma back in high school, was from Guyanna, she is a wonderful cook and about the best ‘best friends momma’ you could ask for. She made some killer pepper sauce, curry chicken, salt fish, and my favourite of her specialities roti. She tried guiding us girls through the roti making process one day but I think the beers got away with us, and none of the lesson really stuck, one recipe however has stuck with me all these years and that’s Pam’s chickpea green onion channa.

The other night I was having a mad craving for some spice, heat and ethic flavours so I made a little vegetarian west Indian feast, complete with spelt roti and while it wasn’t the best I have ever made it still perfectly bundled up the yummy purple yams and carrots I slowly roasted slathered in Chamelea Giri’s Garama Masala spice blend (check out her etsy shop), and Pam’s channa masala.

I don’t have the luxury of having a jar of Pam’s scotch bonnet pepper sauce in my pantry, so I used the next best thing; a locally made killer crazy hot Caribbean pepper sauce, and the results were simply perfect. We just needed rum and cola and some soul grooves to bring it all together.

garam roasted pineapple & yam

Mmm my whole house smelled fabulous as these veggies and pineapple chunks roasted away in sweet juice sending wafts of garlic, cumin,┬ácardamon and ginger throughout my home. I think I could happily sustain myself on a diet of grilled pineapple alone…. provided I lived in a climate where it was sustainable to grow my own pineapple that is! Until then it is a guilty pleasure with a heavy carbon footprint indeed. One I indulge in very rarely but do so enjoy, especially with a spicy chilli kicker.
