A South Indian home cooking delight 

My gorgeous friend Anu cooks the very best Indian food I’ve ever tasted. Specialising in the cuisine of her home city Hyderabad, all her creations, purely vegetarian, bring the ingredients and favours to life.

It’s such a treat to watch Anu cook, with great passion and pride.

Naan created with just 1/2 cup yogurt, 1 cup plain flour, salt and water, left for 2 hours, rolled, dimpled  and baked on the Tawa and then flamed over the gas to create the same effect as a Tandoor oven.

Pappadoms made by hand and dried in the back yard – so so good

I’m still enjoying the memory of Anu’s amazing cooking – it was such a treat to watch, learn and savour.

Thank you Anu!!
