Hi all lovely 😍 to hear all your positives!
Verano, the following is a simple way of explaining my mums cooking, use spice as you like it and my mum measures in pinches tsp and cups and I’ve never timed the process 😀 so not particularly precise but absolutely delicious.
🍛First positive sharing: my mum makes the curry from scratch, no secret recipe. Just does the usual sweating, browning onions garlic in olive oil, then a little salt, paprika, fresh green chilli (curry power mix (has haldi, paprika and chilli in, if no fresh chilli) ginger, cooks that slowly, then some tomatoes tinned or fresh and pop in your choice of veg or chicken till cooked, add some butter then some water if you want a sauce for chicken bring to the boil. Simmer add coriander cook for a minute or two. Ready to serve. You could also make the curry and add a grilled piece of fish.
Lamb or mince version you put uncooked meat in a big pot with all ingredients as above (onions, garlic, ginger, paprika, salt, green chilli also uncooked) add water just about covering the meat, bring to the boil then simmer till lamb is cooked and soft, minced meat will cook quicker. Wack the heat up to evaporate any water, lower the heat and add some butter coating all the meat. You can add some veg if you want at this point peas, cauliflower? For lamb add some water if want a sauce. Mince no extra water.
Serve your home cooked curry with cauliflower rice. (Normally she would serve the above with a roti, sweet yellow rice all big no no BSD options)

⚖ I have lost another pound taking me up to a 10lbs loss over a 3 week & 2 day period. I almost gave into children crisp packets and sweets but instead I had some goats cheese and reminded myself what I have achieved so far.
Apologies for the extra long 📫
Have a great weekend everyone 🥰💜🧘♀️
