I got this from an Indian cookbook, but we have simplified it over the years so it could be made reasonably quickly for our Friday curry night after work.
Our boys loved this even before they thought they liked curry! This is the most cooked recipe from the cookbook.
My mother made a great trifle, my sister made her additions, I made mine, this is it.
This may not be the "real" way to make trifle, but it's been our family way for as long as I can remember. This is super quick to assemble if you don't make the custard yourself (sorry mum).
We are currently travelling around Australia, following the crab season it seems. One of our favourite ways to eat all these crabs we catch is in crab cakes. Russell has almost perfected them for our tastes-but I tell him he'll just need to practice a bit more ;-)
The original of this comes from the back of a packet of Chang’s original fried noodles. I make the same dressing, but like a few extra salad ingredients. Original dressing contains olive oil-I find it too heavy and prefer to use canola. Make the dressing ahead of time to allow it to cool. Only add the noodles THE MOMENT you are about to eat or pass them around seperately if there is a chance of left-overs.
My DIL Leah made this Bill Granger salad for us last night. The original calls for a handful of small olives, Leah used a 375g jar of kalmata olives which was perfect. She cut the carrots into long thin matchsticks (julienne).
