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:The Coach & Horses, Carlisle

"After reading good reviews on the pub's food we decided to try it out last night. We were very disappointed with the food. I had the steak pie and although it was full of large pieces of meat I felt it had been warmed up in a microwave as the pastry was soggy. My partner had turkey in a naan bread but the naan was so hard it was impossible to cut and chew so he finished up with just 3 thin slices of turkey and chips left to eat. Sorry but we won't be back "
