    This is the famous SPANISH Tapas dish that has been messed up by so called chefs around the world. I know there are other recipes for this dish, but, I live in Spain and this is how they are made here. Fresh RAW prawns should be used, pre cooked prawns turn tough if used and spoil the dish. I eat this every week at the local tapas bar. For the best result the dish should be cooked and served in a earthenware dish. Serve with some crusty bread to soak up the liquid.

    Recipe #230628

    This simple pasta dish is very cheap to make, Just a few ingredients and a good olive oil turn this into a meal to relish. I cook the bones from a chicken carcass to make a stock, chicken stock cubes work well if you don't want to make your own stock. Pasta shells are prefered in this dish as they catch the chick peas and the final result is like having a shell with an oyster inside. Kids seem to go for this version of pasta that I cooked many times while in Italy. Serve topped with Parmesan cheese and drizzled with olive oil.

    Recipe #426470

    Recipe #213808

    A real winner this one. Not your usual chicken curry. Deep in flavour, slightly sweetened by the pineapple, coloured by the peas. This is one of MY best chicken curry recipes, I was reluctant to post this as I like to keep and not share my top recipes, but, my dear wife told me that ' Time is running out, you may not be alive next year, so do it now'. Here then is the recipe, Comfort food at it's best.

    Recipe #409282

    Another version of the recipe that I posted, before. This version has no lemon juice so is smoother. The use of ghee helps give the dish a touch of class. This version is for STARDUST. So try it and post me another review. Please.

    Recipe #204470

    Super nutty , fruity, chicken dish.I cooked this yesterday and it was super. This is a one pot dish so not too much washing up, (that's a bonus) I served this with naan bread, but a crusty bread would work well.

    This is a dish from the region of Andhra Pradesh. A valuable side dish to accompany curry or as a side dish for biryani. Simple to cook, and very different from the usual tomato curries to be found on Zaar. Nb. If you dont have tamarind, the juice of a lemon will do, just make the liquid up to one cup.

    Despite it's title there is no pastry in this dish. When we lived in Portugal we had this often, sometimes on it's own and at other times with pork chops or chicken. It's a wonderful blend of two of Portugal's favorite vegetables. Tonight we will have this with baked salmon.
