A Bowl Full of Game Stew
At this time of the year you can't beat a hearty stew. This simple mixed game stew is just the thing to eat with your friends on a cold autumn evening. I like to serve with some crusty bread to mop up the rick gravy this stew makes after the long slow thermal cooking. Happy thermal cooking, Mr D

A Golden Saffron Chicken Curry
This dish is based on a recipe from one of my favourite cookbooks "curry, curry curry" by Ranjit Rai. I have made a few alterations and added the potatoes. In his book Ranjit Rai says that he is not sure if the dish came from Spain or went to Spain but no matter, if you like saffron this is certainly one try.

Chicken Adobo

Filipinos Favourite Chicken Adobo

Filipinos Favourite Chicken Adobo
The first time I tried chicken adobo was when some Filipino friends in Abu Dhabi made it for me. I then went on to learn that there is no defined recipe as every mum in the Philippines seem to have their own version. The basics of garlic, soy, and vinegar stay the same but the balance of these ingredients are altered to suit each person who makes it. There are even one or two who add coconut milk to the dish but as far as I can see this is not acceptable to many.

Kerala Fish Curry

A Typical Kerala Fish Curry

A Typical Kerala Fish Curry
Kerala's long coastline with numerous rivers and backwaters has contributed to many sea and river food dishes to be found in this region of India. This curry is typical of the type you will find in Kerala being served in both small and large restaurants. Due to the weather the selection of spices available in South India are vast and I have included some of the more popular ones in this dish. The beautiful yellow colour is created using turmeric which has been used in India for thousands of years and is a major part of certain types of traditional Indian medicine. Coconut milk which forms the base of the dish is widely used in Kerala for thickening and flavour and comes from the coconuts which grow in abundance. Just like any other recipe, each chef will have their own variation and this is mine for Kerala Fish Curry.

Recipe Notes

NOTE: If you need to leave it longer than this, do everything except adding the fish which you can add about 30 minutes before serving by bringing the curry sauce back to the boil, adding the fish and then putting the inner pot back into the outer container to finish cooking. Serve with rice either cooked in a separate saucepan or in the top pot. If cooking in the Mr D's Top Pot follow the following instructions.
