Saffron Mussels : yet another superb dish from Anjum Anands ,I Love Curry book. The previously made Bengali Fish Curry was also superb. My mother cooked one of her vegetable curries , again superb results. I am really looking forward to trying more of her recipes.
The Teign Mussels were also bang on, better than the ones I foraged from that area. Teign Mussels beat Exmouth mussels for sure.
My chilli plant cost £3 (reduced from £5)from Waitrose, just the right type for Indian food. Its giving a fantastic yield of chilli, the second batch are coming through as we speak.
I followed the mussels, with coconut and lime ice cream. The recipe from Nadia and Cesar Rodens ‘Ice Kitchen’ Book. Originally an Ice Lolly recipe . The end result a cross between ice cream and sorbet. Great flavour combo very refreshing. Homemade ice cream can be a hit and miss affair, but it’s well worth doing. Don’t bother with magimix ice cream makers. My cheap one is not the best , but it’s better than the magimix one I used before.
