Curry in a Hurry 

King's Curry in a Hurry is a delicious and easy-to-make curry recipe from Freddy Hirsch. The recipe uses our signature curry powder, which is made from a blend of spices, including turmeric, coriander, and cumin. To make the curry, you start by cutting onions and garlic in oil and frying them until golden brown, then adding chicken or meat and cooking until browned. Next, add the curry powder and stir until the meat is coated. Finally, add chopped tomatoes and water, and simmer until the meat is tender and the sauce has thickened. The recipe is versatile and can be adapted to your taste by adding more or less curry powder and adjusting the heat level with chilli powder or fresh chillies. Serve the curry over rice or with naan bread for a delicious and satisfying meal.

What's Cooking Bobotie Croquettes is a unique and delicious recipe. Bobotie is made with spiced mince and topped with a custard-like topping, and in this recipe, it is transformed into bite-sized croquettes; what more could you ask for? To make the croquettes, you start by frying onions and garlic in a pan, then adding minced beef or lamb and frying until browned. Next, add What's Cooking Curry Mince spice and fry for a few more minutes. The mixture is then combined with mashed potatoes and rolled into balls, which are coated in breadcrumbs and fried until golden and crispy. The result is a flavorful and satisfying appetizer or snack that is perfect for entertaining or as a side dish. Serve the croquettes with a spicy chutney or dipping sauce for an extra kick of flavour.
