Making Thai curry paste is so much easier than it looks, it’s just taking the ingredients, roasting some of them and then just grinding in Pestle and mortar. Or a processor works too! It’s so full of freshness and flavour, and takes you to tropical paradise with just one bite!
I am very fond of South Indian cooking! It has such a great variety, many different vegetables are used, as well as many spices – and most of all because it is cooked with coconut oil and freshly grated coconut. So here is one of my favorite curries, acutally very simple to make and sooo tasty.

This is one of my favourite go to vegetarian dinners. Roasted Cauliflower, Butter beans and Paneer.
I have adapted the original recipe a little bit. But the two key ingredients are always Tikka Masala Paste and Coconut Cream/Milk.
The rest of the ingredients are Pumpkin, Carrots, Sweet Potato, Spinach, Lemon and Naan Bread.

This aromatic mixture of dry roasted and ground spices called "shahi garam masala" is used in a large number of dishes that are native to the region of West Bengal in India. Vegetable dishes are finished with a touch of ghee and shahi garam masala. When cooking meat, however, this goes in the marinade itself. This must-have Bengali spice mixture reminds me of home everytime I cook.
I thought we had a few cinnamon sticks left? The mustard seeds must be in the back of the cupboard somewhere. Where is the last of that chili powder, the hot sauce? Why can’t we ever find the oyster fork when we need it? It’s the Spice Thieves! They sneak in and “borrow” whatever they need.
I learned of granizados when I lived in Spain. They are water-based, dairy-free frozen treats with a slush like texture. One of the most traditional granizados is lemon flavored, but when it is hot, a granizado de café is a wonderful way to get your coffein hit and a cool treat at the same time. Classically the liquid is put in the freezer and has to be scraped every thirty minutes. This makes it quite time consuming. But if you own a blender or smoothie maker you can side track this easily and have a treat whenever you like it with minimal prep time!
