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

Spabbit’s Damn right down and double dirty rice

This is a down and double dirty rice – flavour wise it has a smokey base with a sweet leading edge. The texture is amazing, soft yet well cooked pieces of burger, crunchy pieces of bacon, firm yet cooked peppers & onions, all with the rice!

The pieces of burger could be swapped out for chicken, marinaded pieces of beef, or even some form of sea food!… Continue Reading

Rum + Cream + Stuff = Awesome!

I was experimenting in the kitchen with the aim of making a Baileys substitute, as it’s well known that Baileys contains LOTS of sugar… And I’m a rum drinker, not whisky (But I dare to say this would work with whisky) 🙂

This recipe made me just over a litre, the only sugars came from the Evaporated Milk (44g), and a tiny bit in the Vanilla – a tiny amount compared to Baileys, which according to the Interwebs is around 25% sugar.… 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
