OK……… traditionally this is a frugal time of year. I don’t much like January and I really don’t like February. I just want to stay in, stay warm, stay on the sofa and watch movies. And eat delicious food. However, with money and my jeans now too tight to mention, filling the fridge is not an option and a take away is out of the question. So, imagine my delight when I discovered Legend In His On Lunchtime’s recipe for Vegetable Pakoras with minted yogurt. http://thecookinyourkitchen.blogspot.com/2012/12/tis-season-to-empty-fridge.html
And as luck would have it, for Christmas I was given a whole bunch of spices a friend had brought back from his trip to Kerala.
I followed the instructions and grated a selection of things at the bottom of the fridge……… in my case carrot, cabbage, celeriac and onion….. mixed them with the spices and chickpea flour (also known as Gram flour if you have trouble finding it) and unbelievably they worked!
So easy and so delicious, I made them three days running……. So much for the post Christmas diet.
Top tip: to combat cold weather, spice it up in the kitchen…….
