Last of the Indian summer

Andhra Carrot Curry

We are great believers in using up what we have, rather than throwing it away and buying more.

When Karen went back to SA she left me a well stocked fridge, amongst which were a lot of carrots.

Also being on an Indian crusade, I had all the spices. What to make?

I googled 'indian carrot dishes' and found Andhra Carrot Curry.

The recipe I found had far, far too many ingredients, so I made my own variation using the spices I had.

You can find my version of this recipe: Andhra Carrot Curry

Masala tea ingredients

My other indian favourite at the moment is masala tea.

It's really tasty, and spices are good for the digestive system.

You can buy it ready made, but I love my own mixture.

I use:

2 Rooibos (redbush) tea bags
2 sachets truvia (natural sweetener)
1 star anise
5 cardamom pods
cinamon sticks (a couple of small pieces)
5 cloves
5 coriander seeds

Put all the spices in either an infuser (as in the picture) or use a piece of muslin, rather like making a bouquet garni.
Put the infuser, truvia and tea bags in a saucepan, and pour over about 2 cups of boiling water.
Add about 3/4 cup milk. Bring momentarily to the boil. The turn off and let it brew for a few minutes.

Delicious and invigorating.

Makes 2 - 3 cups.
