Latest Question...

When should I add kasoori methi to a curry? I usually add it with onions in hot oil so that the oil could pick up its flavour but that seldom happens. If I add it at the end with garam masala, the dish happens to have a bitter after taste which is a put off. Please help me create a perfectly balanced curry having kasoori methi, also tell me which all whole spices could I use along with it in my cooking. - Saurabh Suri

Latest Restaurant Review:Burlington's Restaurant at The Beech Hill Hotel, Windermere

"When half term loomed I chose the Lake District to entertain the boy. I wanted a hotel with facilities like a pool, a central location and lake views. So the Beech Hill Hotel ticked all the boxes. It's only a 5 minute drive from the centre of Bowness down the lake road. The hotel is perched above the lake with commanding views down its length over to the Langdales. I was surprised at the size of our twin room, more like a suite, again with amazing views and a terrace. The new spa has it all, pool, outdoor Jacuzzi again with lake views, steam room and sauna. A great couple of days at the Beech Hill. Sadly missed out on the grand looking restaurant due to a worn out little man however room service hit the spot. Will return and am looking forward to dining next time."
