That is more or less the recipe I use for meat balls with tomato sauce.

I like to add in some basil and thyme for flavour.

11b chicken thighs skinned
1 diced onion
2 cloves garlic
2tsp grated ginger
2 large tomatoes chopped
1tsp salt
1tsp hot chilli powder [depending how hot you like it]
1/2tsp turmeric
2tsp garam masala [sometimes I add 1tsp all spice]
1/2 can coconut milk
handful of fresh chopped or ground coriander

brown chicken - put to one side
fry onions in olive oil, toss in garlic, ginger. give a quick stir then add the spices.
give about 2 or3 minutes stirring
add the chopped tomatoes - heat through then add the coconut milk, stir occasionally till heated through
add the chicken - heat  -cover-  then either cook in the oven gas mark 4, or leave on top of hob simmering, stirring every now and then, until chicken is cooked thoroughly. Add the fresh coriander about 5 minutes before serving. Unless you use the dried, then just add with rest of spices.

Yum is all I can say about some of these recipes.  I am going to try the curry's since my OH loves curry.

I love cake but the cost of them in Sainsbury's is starting to annoy me so I thought I would start making my own.  I love fruit cake and date and walnut cake.  Think I will make the date and walnut next week and see how it goes.  If anyone has some ideas for tasty easy cake recipes for me to try I would be most appreciative.

How about a really easy fruit loaf. Its packed with fruit and its a boiled one which sounds gross but keeps it moist for about a week.

I will post the recipe when my dear son wakes up. He is sleeping in the same room as my recipe  ::)

Easy boiled fruit loaf

Put 2 cups of raisins or sultanas in a large saucepan with 1 cup of milk and 1 cup of castor sugar. Add 100g of marg and bring slowly to the boil. Stir until marg has melted.

Leave to cool.

Line a loaf tin medium size (about 2lb).

When mixture has cooled add 2 eggs and two cups of self raising flour. Stir well with a wooden spoon, no need to beat it.

Cook at 180 for about an hour.

Guaranteed success every time.


As you can see son is now awake and I could get at the recipe  ::)

I'll give it a go!  Do you think it would be ok to use butter instead of marg?

Yes butter is just fine and will give it an even better taste.

Just remember to use the same cup for all your measurements. I use a tea cup and fill it to the same level (almost to the very top) every time.

My lot like this loaf with butter and jam but I like it on its own.

Let me know how it goes.

....................................best way to pickle onions

Hi kerrieann

This is how I do them:-

1) De-skin onions and lay them on a tray - sprinkle well with salt and leave overnight.
2) Next morning rinse the onions well under cold water and put into jars, filling jar as near to the top as possible.
3) Using special Pickling Vinegar (with Spices already included), cover the onions and screw down the jars tightly.  If you don't have Pickling Vinegar, I mix Malt vinegar 50/50 with water and add a few dried pickling spices to each jar.  The spices can be left out if preferred.
4) The onions will be ready to eat in two-3 weeks, depending on size.

Enjoy crunching ...... just in time for Christmas.
