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.

A post for ginger nuts…

This post is dedicated to ginger nuts. When I say that I mean people who love ginger!

I never thought I would be able to stomach ginger again after consuming packets of crystallised ginger during the first 3 months of pregnancy (to settle the morning sickness). Six months down the track and I saw this recipe for ginger nut biscuits, and had an overwhelming urge to make them (along with so many other exotic recipes – the maternal nesting has really kicked it!).

This recipe was in the woman’s Day magazine, however I changed it slightly to make them a little more gingery (after tasting the raw mixture I didn’t think they deserved to be called ginger nuts – so got a little heavy handed with the ground ginger!). I shared these with 3 people on the weekend, and all of them wanted the recipe – so I guess you could say they were a hit.
