That Kashmiri chutney to brighten up your table, your palate and your day 😊😋. This elevates the flavors of walnuts and white radish with a nudge of green chilies, garlic and mint which is finally combined with the richness of creamy yoghurt ( plant based is perfect).
Serve as a side or a dip or by the spoonful 😍.

It’s eggplant season - enjoy your summer produce. This dish is called Mahshi Batinjaan. Batinjaan is eggplant. You can prepare the dish stuffed with meat or vegetable. I have used a stuffing mixed with rice. Any leftover stuffing can be cooked to a side dish.
There is a recipe on my blog.

Bespoke spice mix for Ras-el-hanout being put together just for me in the Médina of Marrakech. The fragrance is so intense and magical that it makes to want to get back home and start cooking with these spices.

Lunch in Tanger: Another city today and another 5 course Tagine lunch. This was in the heart of Medina served like a home cooked meal by some amazing hosts. We started with salad and soup, followed by an amazing plate couscous and then the steaming tagines. This was then beautifully closed by fresh fruit, sweets and always the steaming cups of mint tea.
