Yummilicious Yellow Split Pea Curry

SASSY SPRING ROLLS WITH PRAWNS AND CRISPY VEGETABLES

Yummy, Scrummy Sweet Potato, Onion and Coriander Bhajis

Bhajis adapt themselves to many different vegetables.  These ones are baked to put a healthier twist but if you are entertaining the would be great deep fried.  The only problem I felt with the baked ones is although they went brown they didn’t crisp up so next time I might squeeze out some of the…… Continue reading Yummy, Scrummy Sweet Potato, Onion and Coriander Bhajis
