Delicious Fried Fish Curry

Last Friday I made possibly the easiest and most delicious curry I have made to-date. It was one of those dishes, that when I tasted it, I thought to myself – did I really make that?!  It was delicious, and I was excited. Yes, I get incredibly excited when something that tastes so good is made by myself  – spatula in hand I did a little jig and then than called C over to taste it. I expected him to break out into a little dance too – naturally that didn’t happen, but he did agree it was delicious. Keep Reading

As I am sure is the case with most home cooks – I LOVE one tray or one pot cooking. The ease of throwing everything together, bunging it into the oven or on top of the stove and letting it look after itself for a while is wonderful! Not to mention cutting down the washing time (we have no dishwasher in our new apartment…and I feel as though I’m doing the dishes all day long!) Keep Reading
