We are starting to look around for a new free standing GAS cooker (500mm/50cm) our current Hotpoint is around 2 gas mark low and it doesn't seem to hold its temperature very well - looking at over £120 for a new main gas valve its 8 years old so it may not be worth the repair if it fixes it (gas has been drop and pressure tested and the supply is fine)

so what do ...

... :roll:

When I started making (and selling) curries I didn't contemplate any vegetarian dishes until, of course, the request came in. I now do a small range of such dishes as follows:

Bombay potatoes
Aloo Ghobi (potato and cauliflower)
Aloo Chatt (potatoe and chickpeas)
Tarka Dhal (lentils)
Mirch Aloo (potatoes in tomato/tamarind)

But I'm struggling to find ...

What's your favourite then?

My takeaway is starting to get popular with the locals and I'm starting to get a feel for what people like but wondered if this corresponds with the general consensus.

I introduced a lamb pasanda today (my own take on it) and have to blow my own trumpet over it as it's chuffin' stonkin' like man.... couldn't stuff enough down my cakehole and reckon it'll sell like hot cakes when the ...

 Post subject: Back to cooking on induction hob, now in control?
PostPosted: Thu May 11, 2017 11:21 am 
I started off cooking on solid fuel, got to know which areas would simmer and which would cook fast, but as the coke supply from the local steelworks dried up, moved to electric, first electric ring was a shocking thing, the element was dragged around a ceramic former and from time to time it would fail, and the wire could then pop up and touch bottom of the pan, but when we got first full ...

The Mrs. is from Yorkshire and knows them as "Bits"

 Post subject: Crispy, crusty crunchy.

What is it that's so universally appealing about any foods with these characteristics?


Pork crackling, crispy chicken skin, crusty bread, (a rare beast nowadays), anything fried in batter or deep fried breadcrumb coatings - does anyone not like any of these?

PostPosted: Mon Nov 28, 2016 10:53 am 
Has anyone any idea what this is? I bought it from a Charity Shop for 49p because I was intrigued and nobody knew what it was! :lol: Its about the size of a potato peeler or apple corer so I wondered if it was a kitchen gadget?? There isn't anything written on it except Made in China. It also has a reset button.

PostPosted: Wed Jul 20, 2016 1:36 pm 
..........or whatever you want to call them, the wife has taken a liking to them cos they're easy to eat (I have to cut up some foods for her).

I'm fast running out of ideas for different tasty things to shove in them.

I usually give the whole wrap a wipe over with something lubricating like mayonnaise,crème fraiche or hummus and always add some salad and then the tasty bits.

Tasty bits so far are ...
