Whenever we order rice as part of an Indian takeaway my hubbie and I get ‘peas pilau’, largely as he is rather obsessed with peas! It’s a lovely side dish which is a bit more interesting than just plain rice and so this week, when I fancied an Indian style dish, I thought I would try and recreate this rice at home. I had some lean mince in the freezer so I paired some spiced beef kofta’s with the rice and served with the mint yoghurt from my Tandoori Salmon recipe.
My other half loves a kebab. I mean LOVES a kebab. So, always keen to try and convince him to go for the healthy homemade option rather than the crusty and uber calorific shop bought version, I thought I would try a different take on one this week.
This recipe was featured in my ‘Gadget Special’ in the November Issue of Weight Watchers magazine (page 73) . It’s a lovely fresh dish which can be made in a griddle/table top grill if you have one. If not you can just pop it under the grill in your oven.
My other half loves chicken satay from the Chinese takeaway, but knowing how naughty it is, it’s not something we have very often. I’ve therefore wanted to make my own healthy version of satay chicken for a while now and this week I decided it was time to give it a go.
