"It's always better to make curry the day before. This way the spices are really infused into the dish"
His curry secret? "Use whole spices first of all then add ground spices later. You need both to get that authentic flavour".
To smoke your aubergines, put them in the oven until the skins are crispy. Then strip off the skins and whizz them up in the food processor. You will end up with the 'caviar' of the aubergine. You add this to your base sauce and leave overnight.
"It's more of a room temperature type salad in which the tomatoes meld with the rest of the ingredients."
White wine or cider vinegar
Yet more coriander
Granny smith apples
Core the apples, then whizz all the ingredients up in a food processor, leave overnight. It couldn't have been easier or it emerged, tastier. This was served in the rose icebowls. The green complemented the colour of the iced roses perfectly. We decorated with Rose geranium leaves and Borage flowers.
