So a lot of people have been asking for the recipe for the lentil curry and naan after it was shown on Eat well for less, Series 5, Episode 1. If you haven’t seen then do pop to BBC Iplayer and have a look. We are back on this Thursday too, BBC1 8pm, please tune in!
Firstly a huge Thankyou if you watched. Please do watch the remaining series too there is so much good stuff to come!
Secondly it’s music to my ears to know so many were loving the lentils. I’m half Sri-Lankan so this is very much “my type of food”.
Do check it out and if you follow my Dietitian UK Facebook and Instagram I will repost any further recipes from the show.
The naan recipe cooked on the show, has not been shared yet but I here is a version that I love just as much, made at home for you, as so many people have been asking. Flatbreads and naan are so easy to make and a joy to eat.
Curry. We all seem to love it in the UK. I come from a Sri-Lankan background so to me curry has always been an important part of life. My problem is it has to be GOOD curry. I don’t mean super chilli-power but…. the fragrantly spiced, cooked from scratch, packed with fresh ingredients type of curry.
The best way to share curry is with friends, so today that’s what we did.
6 adults (including Steph and Dee), 5 children, 3 curries plus accompaniments. IT WAS GOOD!
Here’s a run down of what we had:
Sri-Lankan Chicken Curry
Butternut Squash and greens
Steph’s flatbreads with cumin seeds
Yoghurt to help the children’s palates
A few of my grandmothers homemade cutlets and patties.
The best bit of the meal for me…. the general chatter, people hanging out, children playing and then watching a whole table tuck in. Even the smallest ones enjoyed it. What’s your favourite way to enjoy curry?
