Chicken Tikka Jambalaya – 6sp

My chicken and chorizo jambalaya is one of my most popular recipes and I’m also a big fan so last week, when I was thinking of ways to jazz up my jambalaya, this idea hit me and I knew I had to give it a go. The result was delicious, filling and yet packed with flavour, you would never believe that the bowl food of food that I ate at the end was only 6sp. Even better, it now means I have two delicious recipes for jambalaya…winner!

Tandoori Salmon with Pilau Cauli Cous Cous- 1sp

As you will have no doubt seen by my Instagram, curry Sunday has become a regular thing in our household. Always keen to come up with new and interesting things to serve on a Sunday, this week I decided to give making my own Tandoori Marinade a go. It is exceptionally easy and I have to say, the results were fantastic. Whilst not strictly a curry, the delicious Indian flavours which burst from this dish definitely make it Sunday worthy.

Fiery Beef Madras – 2sp

One of my OH’s conditions for me getting my beautiful puppy was that we would have ‘curry Sundays’ which to be fair, we have mostly stuck too (with the exception of last night!). Last week, in an effort to keep things interesting, I whipped together this lovely curry and I have to say, it may be my favourite curry creation yet. I cooked this on a low simmer for an hour so the sauce was lovely and rich and the beef lovely and soft and falling apart. If you don’t have time to do this however, just pop it on a higher heat for anywhere from 15 minutes.

Chicken Pathia – 1sp

I’m always keen to try a new curry recipe and so when my next door neighbour whipped this one up for me, I knew I had to recreate it for you all. I have adapted the original recipe to suit my own taste (so this version is a little spicier and zestier than the original) but I have to say, it is by far the nicest homemade curry I have tasted. Not only is it 1sp per person but it honestly tastes like it has come straight from an Indian restaurant.

Indian Beef Stir Fry with Yoghurt Rice -11sp

This is a dish that I only caught the end of on an episode of Food and Drink with James Martin but it caught my eye as both the OH and I love a stir fry. Having never experimented with an Indian Stir Fry before, I thought I would give it a go. I didn’t have to make too many changes to this one as the point of the episode was healthy recipes. I did however omit much of the oil (unnecessary calories!!), regularise the portion sizes and up the spices for more flavour! You can see the original recipe here.

Indian Chicken Korai – only 2sp

I love a nice spicy curry and it’s something I love to go out and have in an Indian Restaurant. In the past whenever I’ve tried to make an Indian style curry it has never tasted as good as a take away (I think a lot of other takeaway meals can be home made much nicer!!) and so I have been attempting to create a good one for a while now. This little gem was exactly what I wanted, so quick and easy but so fresh tasting. The ‘final ingredients’ added at the end add a real fresh, spicy kick and the sauce is full of flavour.
