Homemade Sausage rolls

When you’re little you dream about being famous for something…. dancing, ballet, horse riding. I never thought I would be famous (well amongst my friends – does that count?) for making sausage rolls.

I don’t know when it all started, but over about 15 years I have developed a little bit of notoriety for my sausage rolls. To be honest I don’t think they are very different to anyone elses – but who am I to argue with the masses.

There is one claim to fame I will happily take – that a friend’s five year old loves them (and my banana bran muffins), and he doesn’t eat much other than cabana! So that was a big triumph! The great thing about this recipe is you can pack it with carrot (or zuchini… or anything that can be grated), wrap it in pastry, top it with tomato sauce… and the kids will never know!

So here’s the recipe… (with a few variations):

San choy bow (chicken or pork)

My husband and I often cook up san choy bow – it’s a really simple recipe and a healthy meal. We try and make it even healthier by adding a few extra vegetables to the recipe. This is a great meal for those kids that don’t like vegies ’cause it all gets mixed in with the meat, and disguised with sauces (as long as you’re mega secretive, and don’t let them spy all the vegies on the chopping board before you cook it!) Here’s our version below…

Pistachio nut chicken korma

This recipe is from a mouth-watering curry cook book called the Curry Bible by Mridula Baljekar. It was given to me by a great friend, who knows how much I love to cook. Anyone that loves curries and cooking – this book is a must!

I made it the other night – with the weather turning colder, and the sound of the wind in the trees outside… I had the urge to cook a comforting, mild, but fragrant curry.
