Made too much dessert for my dinner party... so still working my way through portions of this rich, delicious chocolate and olive oil mousse. It's a super simple Nigella Lawson recipe, just mix chocolate and olive oil, then mix in egg yolks + sugar and finally whipped egg whites. Definitely adding to my repertoire, though I'll probably tone it down a bit next time 😁 🍫

Made my first prawn malai curry last night, using my friend's traditional Khulna style recipe. I played around with it a bit, pulping the onion rather than just slicing it. I don't think it was the best idea - the sauce had body, but the lack of caramelisation meant no smokey, umami flavour. I think I'm going to stick to slicing next time, and amp up the turmeric a little (she gave me a "chokher andaj" recipe, obviously 🤣) 🦐🦐 .

Had Nani's ginger polao today after a long time. It's a very simple recipe - just some basmati fried in butter, sugar and ginger before being cooked in the standard hard spices. I topped it off with some caramelised onion, which I didn't burn to charcoal for once. More importantly though... why did I make 1 kilo of this for 7 people? 😅

Seem to be having an inadvertent green themed evening! This is my dimer jorda from a couple of days ago. I was making some to finalise a recipe for the blog, and decided to add some pandan essence. I'd forgotten it came with green food colouring, but when I opened the bottle I thought why not. Looks a bit weird but tasted just fine 😁

Dinner tonight: sea bass in mustard - the closest I've been able to get to the traditional shorshe ilish without using actual ilish. I've been tweaking the recipe for years.... though a version of it has been up on the blog for a while. Served up here with rice and garlic-spinach for a nice healthy meal 🐡

Had this amazing oxtail stew from Caribbean takeaway Talk of the Town in Birmingham. It was rich, unctuous and quite unlike anything we make in Bangladesh, though it looks the same brown! Anyone have any good recipes to share for this dish? I've looked online but would like to hear about ones people have tried! 🐂

My dish had red and green chicken - does that count as Pohela Boishakh food?? Celebrations were limited to lunch at Tipu Sultan and a stroll through Cannon Hill Park, but it was nice and relaxing. A review of this place is due, I think. Shubho Noboborsho everyone ☺️

More food: Bengali chicken pot roast. This is a rich, sweet and spicy dish that I really want to learn to make! Swipe for a standard beef curry - which despite its simplicity is another old favourite of mine 😋

Two fish curries from this week's dinner party. On the left is mrigal, cooked in the standard spices. On the right is an old favourite of mine, ilish cooked in mustard. Ilish is hard to come by in many parts of the world, so I cook a version of this dish with sea bass in the UK - recipe is on the blog. I've definitely been eating more than I should be this week! 🎣

First time at @stablepizza! Their original branch is from the lover's hometown in deepest, darkest Dorset - so I've always wanted to visit. I had lunch at the Birmingham branch today, and tried two excellent pizzas: a simple chicken with mushrooms and sweet peppers; the other with shredded roast beef, jalapenos, sour cream and extra chilli. Generous toppings + thin crusts, but crucially not burnt to a crisp. Miles better than other places that charge similar prices like Pizza Express. Will have to visit the original someday! 😁 🍕
