Quiche is another thing on a long list of things I’ve wanted to make for ages but never got round to. I ended up on YouTube one day watching this video, and the guy just made it look so easy that I thought I ought to try it.
It was pretty easy apart from a couple of super-sticky dough issues, and the filling came out really well – the custard part was great. I put two of my favourite things in – bacon and leek – so it couldn’t go too far wrong. Another great summery lunch.
Guess what…Madhur Jaffrey is back in my life. This time I went for a Spicy Prawn Stir-fry with a Goan-style Dal Curry with some chapatis that Lloyd Grossman lovingly made.
The lentil dal was good but I put way too much tomato in which wasn’t great. The prawns took all of about 4 minutes and were absolutely delicious, so they’d make a really great summery lunch if you served them with some salad. All you need to do is put some oil and spices in a pan, add a bit of garlic, then put the prawns in and fry for a couple more minutes. But seriously, get the book.
