Smoked Paprika & Coriander Pizza

Recently life has been a bit hectic and not normal so even our diet has been disrupted! We end up craving naughty foods but really want something quick. The chocolate bar or packet of crisps call out to me and I give in readily, however today I made this really simple Mexican/Italian fusion pizza!!

Full of taste and cheese!! Yes as most of you know I adore cheese, it is my absolute weakness combined with tomato, I am in heaven!!!

Here is the recipe for a quick tasty fix…


2 Pitta bread toasted lightly

grated cheddar cheese

handful of fresh coriander

For the sauce

half a cup of crushed tomato

1 tsp rapeseed oil

1/2 tsp smoked paprika

sprinkle of dried oregano

salt to taste


In a small saucepan, heat the oil on a low heat with the oregano. Once it sizzles pour in the crushed tomato with the rest of the ingredients

Keep on low, stir well and cook for 5 minutes

Once the sauce is done, spread on the pitta bread, and top with the coriander and grated cheese

Place under the grill until the cheese is melted and then devour!


Quick Tangy Masala Chips

I crave carbs like all the time and the one thing on a hot day that would hit the spot are these chips!! Not too unhealthy as they chips were baked and the sauce cooked with very little oil How … Continue reading

A Baked Broccoli Kofta Curry….

Shivaay Delights


I absolutely love to find new recipes to try and am able to get a variety everyday on the Facebook interactive food group. With over 6000 members, I have made many friends and you can imagine the amount of vegetarian food dishes, recipes and ideas that are flying around.

I see so many that I wish to make, that now I have started to bookmark them. The first one I couldnā€™t wait to cook was The Baked Broccoli Kofta Curry by Swathi Pareek @ Cooking wid joy and what an outstanding recipe. Firstly what stood out at me was that the koftas were baked rather than fried and the ingredients were really healthy with hardly any use of oil.

What resulted was a superb curry with an intense broccoli hit of kofta in the most delectable tomato based curry. Swati! What a fantastic recipe!! One I know I willā€¦

All of you by now will know that, when I get a craving for something, there is no stopping me. I listen to my body when wanting certain foods. But have to control the naughty cravings! šŸ˜‰ For example I find that if Iā€™m craving oranges or something orange flavoured, Iā€™m lacking in Vitamin C or a cold could be pending. I got in tune with my body a lot at the time I was pregnant. You feel free to eat almost whatever you want and I felt my body was literally communicating with me via cravings.

I would picture, say a passion fruit and could already yearn for it on my palette, and that actually did happen. My husband and I were driving back from my friends place and I was about 7 months pregnant. I told him to stop the car at the parade of shops and seeā€¦

Shivaay Delights


Going back 10 years, it was a Saturday and I was at work. It was a busy day and made even more busier by the delivery people that were dotting in and out bringing big, luxurious Valentine gifts for the girls at work. Everytime one walked in I would hold my breath in anticipationā€¦had my boyfriend of 5 months sent me a Valentineā€™s surprise?! No! šŸ˜¦

I had told my parents if anything arrived for me at home, then please call me. I didnā€™t get a phone call either. So the day ended and I slowly made my way home! I walked into our lounge upset only to find a incredibly massive bunch of roses with these unique feathered leaves adorning the corner of the room!


He had remembered and it meant so much especially as my boyfriend was working in New Zealand at the time. We didnā€™t get aā€¦
