Spabbit’s Samosa-Noods

"WTF?" I hear you say! Yes, this is a straight-outta-spabbit insane recipe - who in their right mind would even imagine cooking noods in a samosa filling?! Spabbit loves Fusion Foods, and this one attempt, love or loathe, these noods taste fantastic :) [I'm thinking at this point, this recipe counts as Fusion-Junk-Food!] … Continue Reading

Uncle Roger always knows best!

For those of you [like you three wierdos] who don't browse YouTube every day until your eyes bleed, you may not have stumbled across Nigel NG, aka Uncle Roger. This guy is amazing, and has recently produced a video taking Jamie Oliver to bits with his so-called-fried-rice - the results are hilarious. As a reasonable chef myself, I agree with everything Uncle Roger says! #MSGMASSIVE

Go subscribe to his channel if you haven't already!

Nigel NG also has a podcast called Rice to Meet You!

Spabbit’s Chilli Con Carne

This Chilli Con is a recipe which I have refined over the years, some of the ingredients have been swapped around due to availability over time - this is the latest iteration of the recipe. Whilst there are a few ingredients which aren't found that often in every kitchen, most of them should be available either online or in your local deli. The measurements are all approximate, the recipe will get you in the target zone, but as with all good recipes it's up to the chef to fine-tine to their own preferences. I hope you enjoy! … Continue Reading

Big shout out to Chin and Choo, from Ziangs Oriental Food Workshop

Here's a massive shout-out to Chin and Choo from Ziangs Oriental Food Workshop!

Spabbit’s Spicy Noods

I love these Spicy Noods and they’re so healthy, the recipe is mine – influenced by the basic flavours of Singapore Noodles, but with an Indian slant, plus some Spanish smoke from the Pimentón 🙂 Cooking a batch on the weekend means a healthy spicy lunch to keep you going through the week.… Continue Reading

Recipe: Spabbit’s Chana Masala

Chana Masala❤ Chana Masala!

This is one of the cheapest side or main dishes to make, it’s quick, easy, and very tasty to boot. This whole recipe would cost under three pounds, or in American terms (Assuming approximately the same pricing) $3.50. I liked my latest batch so much I ended up eating it cold with some tortilla chips 🙂

This is also ideal for #lockdown cooking in any well stocked kitchen!… Continue Reading

Recipe: Sweet Waffles (No Sugar!)

This recipe will produce delicious Sweet Waffles which can be served with basically anything your imagination can churn out 🙂

This is my spin on the Sweet Waffle Recipe, it has no sugar, instead relying on Splenda (Sucralose) to provide the sweet crispy kick that is expected and welcome with sweet Waffles!… Continue Reading

Spabbit’s UK Indian-takeaway Mint Sauce.

img_4662For years now, I’ve been after a recipe to exactly replicate the sweet tasty sauce you typically get when ordering from an Indian Takeaway in the UK – the stuff is delicious, and I often found myself ordering more than I needed, just to feast with afterwards.

The sauce is great – you can have it with Indian food, such as bhajis or Samosas, or just as a dip for some tortilla chips (I’ve done that one more than once!)Continue Reading

Spabbit’s Lamb Samosas

imageThese Samosas are my first attempt, and I have to say I pretty much nailed it 🙂 Whoever says you need filo pastry is just wrong – they work fine with a basic pastry, the same as you’d use for a stuffed paratha.

This recipe will make around 8 to 10 large samosas, depending on the size you want of course.… Continue Reading

Another LCHF meal idea!

imageI’m back on the LCHF (Low Carb, High Fat) diet this week, and whilst not bored of the usual recipes, I’m always looking to put a twist on an existing meal, after all a boring diet is one which you won’t end up sticking to.

People are always looking for carb substitutes, but nothing quite hits the spot, so I decided to go the other way, also away from the usual salad – as I don’t know about you, but I do tend to get a little bored with the same accompaniments all the time.… Continue Reading

Recipe: Tandoori Chicken

image

This Tandoori chicken dish is super easy to make, and only takes around 10-15 minutes prep in total. You may have had something like this from an Indian Takeaway, maybe labelled as a Shashlik (Although that is cooked slightly differently), however probably down simply as Tandoori Chicken.

Serves 2. Don’t be put off this recipe for marinade times, you can do anything from 1 hour to 24 hours, obviously the longer the marinade the better, but don’t be pressured into thinking it has to be an age, it doesn’t!… Continue Reading
