It would be a sad world for me if there was no Indian Cuisine around. I really love it so much.
So here is a couple of recipes I made tonight vegan curry puffs and spicy lemon rice.
1 tsp vegetable Oil
1/2 finely chopped onions
2 potato shredded
1/2 sweet potatoes shredded
1/2 C sweet peas
1/2 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp coriander powder
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1 Tbsp ginger
1/2 tsp red chili powder
2 puff pastry sheets
pinch of salt
Pre-heat the oven at 200C/400 F
Heat some oil in a frying pan at a medium temperature
Saute the onions
Add in the potatoes, sweet potato, peas and a little salt. Turn over until they are cooked should take a few minutes
Add in the spices and mix then set aside to cool
After 5 minutes spoon the mix into the centre of a square shaped puff pastry piece then fold to make a triangle
Place in the oven for 20 minutes and then take them out then place them on a cooling tray
Serve with spicy lemon rice and your favourite condiment – mine is hot mango pickle
