    Having enjoyed a ruddy great Keelham Farm Shop Tipsy Pig Pie for dinner (that's midday/early afternoon, folks) with Mrs, FIL & our niece, we were quite full this evening. I managed to quaff down a couple of tongue sandwiches (with mustard, naturally ... Colemans') and a boiled egg. Then, a pickled egg. Burp!

    The legendary club sandwich. Betwixt two slices of bread I layered two pieces of provolone cheese, lettuce, two tomato slices, thin slices of ham & turkey, three rashers of hot bacon and a dash of mayo. :p

    Twas the night before Monday, and all through the house was the scent of a roast lamb, and all the trimmings, washed down with some Northern Monk Glory Triple IPA.

    Cheers! Leftovers tonight :D

    Not so much a formal recipe, but here's what I did ...

    Start with ghee and spices
    Add stuff
    Add more ghee
    Add herbs
    Add more ghee ...

    I jest! Here goes ...

    Put a generous amount of ghee in a frying pan and add spices
    Spices? Ground coriander, ground cumin, turmeric, ginger, fenugreek & asafoetida
    Blitz up an onion and add to the spice/ghee
    Cube up an aubergine, slice some mushrooms and add to the pan ... toss through so all the lovely ghee goes in
    Blitz up a couple of skinned plum tomatoes and add to the pan
    Shred some cabbage, cut up cauliflower, slice up a carrot, perhaps courgette and add to pan ... oh, peas also ... and a green pepper < any vegetables, really
    Add some more ghee ... chopped chillies, tomato puree, salt and ground black pepper
    Pour over some vegetable stock, just to cover
    Simmer on low until reduced (about an hour), folding the veg through once or twice
    Add fresh coriander leaves, squeeze of lemon and a good slice of salted butter
    Fold through and so long as the sauce has a good consistency (fat holding tomato in suspension), serve up

    I think that's about right.

    Really, the ingredients can be anything as this will also work - it's the method behind the sauce that's the important bit and that's simply that tomato held in suspension in fat is a lovely thing!

    The spice mix is important - fenugreek and asafoetida are two that I think really make the difference to what is otherwise the classic curry mix of coriander, cumin and turmeric.

    ...erm, "some".

    Probably 1tsp each of coriander, cumin and turmeric; possibly half teaspoon of each of the others, black pepper included.

    I'm terrible at recipes - I just do what feels right. If the spice is overpowering, I'll add more veg. No, that should be about right. Aim for 100ml of ghee in total and pop enough veg in there for two pasta bowls of food. Put frankly, it doesn't really matter ... so long as you're not miles off.

  12. I tried your recipe tonight. I think I may have put in too much veg for the amount of spices as it wouldn't all fit in a large frying pan. Still tasty though, I'm on my second bowl.

    I missed out peas and carrots but added in a tin of chick peas.

    I'll.have to try it again

    Cheers

    Looks good @demusss ... really good! The sauce does look a good consistency.

    If you didn't think you'd put too much ghee in, you probably hadn't put enough in :D

    Something rather exotic - linguine with fresh wild Bärlauch pesto, hand-picked by a pal from the Hessen forests in Germany.
    Sen-bloody-sational!

    I bought a Lamb Shank for today, but couldn't face the heat in this warm weather. I decided on Wensleydale and Chilli jam Deli rolls, I was chopping up my red onions when I decided on Farmers Market burgers, Lincoln Red beef, red onion, toasted bun and tons of ketchup. Tasted just as nice as a posh hotel BBQ. Now will I have another this evening?

    Tonight is a local delicacy. The Staffordshire Oatcake. Filled with cheese, bacon, sausage...hell, you can fill it with practically any breakfast food and it is a revelation.

    I bought Tuscan ham, Grey Poupon mustard and boule bread from Tesco. The bread is appalling. So ended up with Toasted Ham sandwiches using a Warburton's toaster. Very nice, although I wanted something cold. No bread, butter and jam for dessert :(.

    I will stick to M&S boule bread in future...
