Joe's Saturday Night Treats

 I let Joe loose in the kitchen tonight, and he conjured up an amazing spatchcock poussin treat.  I'm thinking of making him cook more this space....

Friday treats came courtesy of Manjit's Kitchen.

Manjit's Kitchen sells takeaway homemade Punjabi food from her kitchen.  All the food is vegetarian, and the menu is limited, but it is really good.

I was concerned beforehand that the fiance, who is fairly disparaging about vegetarian food, wouldn't be too keen.  I was very wrong.  We have the onion bhajis, which  were lightly spiced, not as crispsy as most restaurants, but also not as greasy, so overall a win for Manjits.

We also had the Gajar Aloo Matar, a curry of potatoes, carrots and spinach which is excellent, as is the tarka daal. Cumin rice is nice with spice (ha!) as were the chapatis, and the meat was not missed at all.

Jo eating out of the carton.  Ashamed.
The best chilli pickle ever.

Overall, it was a great meal.  Brilliant value for money, and I'd thoroughly recommend - vegetarian or carnivore.  Thumbs up.

PS.  Joe ate all the biscuits, so I missed out on dessert.  Epic fail.
