The Narnia Curry

Never fear, we didn’t discover this curry in the back of a wardrobe behind a bunch of fur coats – we’re just ignorant westerners who can’t pronounce Nonya correctly. However, walking into an asian shop trying to find the appropriate ingredients is (for us) a little bit like a trip to Cair Paravel.

This curry is dead easy to make and has a brilliant flavour payoff; an ideal comfort meal for a cold, rainy spring day.

Calm your tits, it’s not boiling yet!

It’s Friday and the gorgeous sun that we’ve had all week has suddenly and distressingly been snatched away by the sky gods, so we decided to hole up inside and cooking Warming Food and Watch StarWars and Listen to Backstreet Boys. (Is our age showing?)

After vetoing ALL THE THINGS involving aubergine and cucumber, we settled on the following recipe.

This recipe is so good, Three and Four are still scraping the pots. We have declared culinary triumph and are feeling very smug about our skills.

Couscous Salad with Chicken, Pomegranate and Rocket

The essence of this salad is in the pomegranate seeds. Add those crunchy sweet pops to anything and its taste will magically transform to a gourmet level. Ok not quite, but almost. I really only discovered the diversity of pomegranate when in a beach club in South Africa. They had a pomegranate mojito. It was amazing. Best mojito ever.
