Hello & Hallo,
Tonight I cooked cauliflower & pea curry – “Maharashtrian rassa” – from last week’s (14/09/2015) Stylist Magazine. The recipe looked nice & quick and I am always on the look out for new recipes that will become a favourite!
My review of the “Maharashtrian rassa” recipe:
The curry took about 30 minutes to cook which is a bit longer than the recipe said. You are supposed to add a whole tomato and mush it once it’s soft which didn’t really happen for me. If I cooked this again I would chop the tomato before adding it. Once you add the cauliflower florets you are supposed to add 500ml of water. This was in a bit much as the curry ended up a bit watery. I added another tomato (this time chopped) towards the end of cooking the curry which I liked as this made it a more flavoursome. You are supposed to have it with roti bread or chapati but I only had corn tortillas which worked fine as well.
Overall, the curry was lovely. It is very light, spicy but not too hot and is relatively quick. This is definitely an option for a repeat!
For the salad add any vegetables you like. Mine was mixed salad leafs, rocket, half a yellow pepper, a tomato and some spring unions. Also add 1-2 handful of roughly chopped walnuts.
For the dressing mix 1/3 walnut oil, 2/3 olive oil, the juice of 1/2 lemon & 2 table spoons of balsamic vinegar. This dressing is quite light and the walnut oil & walnuts match well.
The rosé wine is “Spice Trail Pinot Noir” and comes from Hungary. It smells like strawberries (yum) and is very light & fresh. It is said to go well with curries & it was nice with it but I think that this wine is nice no matter what you eat. …and best of all it is only £5.99.
