My version of the ever-popular creamy chicken, Murgh Makhani. We've based this recipe on a dish my father's good friend used to enjoy whilst at college in Lucknow (Oudh). Bizarrely enough, this particular recipe uses cheese for added richness, an ingredient used in more opulent, banqueting dishes the rich Northern Indian Nawabs encouraged their chefs to prepare for them. Fresh cardamoms, creamy sauce, simple cooking... beautiful!

This Persian inspired dish is so quick to make, pretty healthy and plays on all sorts of taste and flavour sensations
These are beautiful fried potato cakes my Dad used to make for us any time he got in the kitchen, when Mum was out! They're a staple of any street wala in northern India and a must-have whenever walking around the winter streets of Old Delhi. This is my version, simple, effective and totally delicious!
A wonderfully fragrant sweet, sour type dish from Goa, to the south of India with a distinct peppery perfume. This region's cooking is heavily influenced by the Portuguese, so the Vindaloo is more about vinegar ('vin') and garlic ('alho') than pure hot, heat. The chillies reflect Goa's penchant for a little extra kick. Here's a vegetarian version, every bit delicious as the traditional pork.
