Spicy Peppered Cassava
Last week my parents popped round to my home. With lots of food as always but my Dad had an ominous looking small stainless steel container which was warm to the touch.
I took it over to my kitchen, took a spoon, opened the lid and delved in…
Ummm spicy cassava and now I’m sharing this wonderful recipe with you!
Dad, you never cease to amaze me!
Thank you, much love, D x
1 frozen packet cassava steamed until tender. (Slice into small chunks)
2 cloves garlic crushed
1/2 tsp ginger puree
1/2 tsp minced fresh green chilli
1 tbsp sunflower oil
Black pepper and salt to taste
Fresh lemon juice to taste
Freshly chopped coriander to garnish
In a large shallow saucepan, heat up the oil on low.
After a couple of minutes, gently add the steamed cassava along with the garlic, ginger and chilli
Stir fry for a few minutes making sure the cassava is coated in the oil and ingredients
Season with salt, pepper and lemon juice. Combine well
Eat straight away as a starter or a side. Enjoy!
Instant Loaded Egg Paratha
My husband is always watching Indian street food videos on YouTube. This is one particular dish that he was checking and that I was extremely intrigued by.
I think you all know me by now, in that I love to cook really, really simple food and am not embarrassed in taking short cuts to get to the final yummy result!
This is one of those easy than easier recipes, yet so satisfying and filling. The protein hit from the egg and cheese really reaches the spot! Make sure that you have some ready made parathas or frozen parathas like I used in this recipe and you are ready to go my friends!
Enjoy, see you soon! Much love, D x
Frozen paratha/ready made paratha
