The glorious yellow colour of chana dal is enhanced by adding turmeric. This comforting vegan dish is perfect served with rice or flatbread. In India, chana dal is often served with more of a soup like consistency and is usually cooked in a pressure cooker. Here I’ve opted for a thicker...
Cranberry & white chocolate cake with turmeric
Serves 10-12 | Preparation and baking time +2 hours
Ingredients / Crust
A handful of breadcrumbs, almond flour or crushed almonds/nuts and 2 tbsp butter to line two rectangular cake/bread tins (size 12-14 x 26-30 cm)
50 ml (~50 g) butter
This is a rather rich creamy tasting dish. Fresh turmeric has a wonderfully subtle fragrant flavour which infuses into the lamb. The tangy mango powder offsets the richness of the sauce. If you can’t obtain mango powder you could use tamarind paste (adjust the amount, to taste).

I was craving a little something sweet tonight, but not too sweet...this turned out to be just right.
Awhile back I had bought these dark chocolate dessert cups that hold about 1 oz of whatever.
Tonight, I mixed vanilla ice cream, turmeric, almond butter and cinnamon together in a bowl, then...
I had nearly forgotten about this recipe since I was out of turmeric for quite awhile and haven't made this in a couple of years. This is a tasty soup that is super simple to make, and it has such a lovely golden color from the turmeric. Beware, it is garlic heavy, so if that's a problem, cut...

I previously posted a Moroccan Flatbread recipe that I really love. The main difference between that and the traditional method is that I sauté the onions first: I prefer a less harsh bite. In this case, the most significant difference is the use of yogurt to fill out the volume. It's a Weight...
Harissa is Tunisian chili pepper paste. I've seen so many different peppers used for this recipe that I thought that my use of serrano peppers was an unusual offshoot. In fact, serranos are often a preferred pepper (at least according to professor Wiki Pedia). Regardless of the variation, you...
I posted recipes for the rice and gravy. This is how I used both for dinner.

1/2 cup thinly sliced scallions - whites and greens...

This is definitely out of the box for me. Skip the cheese and use Panko for a Vegan dish.
