Thanks I’ve added that to the long list of ‘next Nagi recipes to make’ list

Thanks to @Anonymouse for telling me about this one. Delicious.
My kids didn’t like the dressing but they loved the meatballs and salad, plus noodles.

I made the Easy Coconut Curry yesterday but can't say I loved it. I found the amount of spices to be huge (1tbsp garam masala and 2tbsp curry powder as well as the other spices). I think I would have liked it a lot more if I scaled it way back. It had quite an earthy taste, so I had to tamper with it a bit to make it more palatable. Unfortunately I made it for 3 days worth of work lunches and I don't really want it :( The kids liked it though so maybe it's just me (but in reality they only eat a couple of teaspoons so doesn't solve my problem of mass leftovers).

I love that curry - send it my way! DH isn't a fan of chunks of pumpkin, but I think the whole thing is delicious!

We had her gereral sao chicken and it was amazing! Not an every day food due to the amount of sugar but so, so delicious.

I wonder if your Garam masala was fresher than hers. It does seem a lot, especially considering she has the curry powder as well and some individual spices as well.

It sort of sounds like a real mish mash of curries to me.

Glad you liked it! It’s a pretty regular staple here :)

This one wasn’t a hit here either. I liked it, but the other three didn’t. Cant win em all!

I gave Navi’s Easter Cake a go. Not perfect but I’m pretty happy with the outcome.

My husband made her hot cross buns for the first time this year on Thursday. So good! We were in lockdown for three months starting before Easter last year and he made them for most of that time as we were always home.

I made chilli prawns last week and they were amazing. So much is that I splurged on a kg of beautiful prawns I saw at the fish shop yesterday so I can keep eating them.

Twice now I've tried to make Nagi's paneer cheese, and both times it's ended up a crumbly mess. I've followed her recipe to the letter so don't know where I'm going wrong.
I also found that my few good pieces stuck to the pan when I was trying to fry them, so disappointing after such a drawn out process.
