This is a long overdue recipe that has finally made it on For The Love of Ghee.  So, for those of you out there who wanted this recipe, here it its!

This basic beef curry is quite delicious, and yet again easy to make.  The prep time is definitely quick.  It does however need a significant amount of cooking time.  Therefore,  I would suggest making this on the weekend, obviously it being a little less mayhem than a weeknight.

Needless to say, it is rather delicious reheated the next day or saved for later in the week.  Frankly the curry tastes great, cold or warm, stuffed into a sandwich and served alongside a pickle and chips or eaten warm with a hot slice of toast or roti.

However, I would suggest eating the curry atop a pile of rice with a pickled condiment of choice…

No Marmalade Orange Pudding Cake!

IMG_2789

No Marmalade Orange Pudding Cake – Wow, what a mouthful it is, but such a worthy title!  Let me tell you a little secret, there really is not a speck of marmalade in it.  Yup you got that right!  Although I must say I had to boil an orange for it.  This citrusy treat is loaded with the rich, orangey, sticky sweet sensation that a orange marmalade pudding cake would deserve if there ever was one.  This cake is unbelievably moist, dense and bursting with fresh citrusy notes.

Who would have thought boiling an orange would be so much fun!  First of all, simmering the orange in a huge pot of water was an experience it itself.  The beautiful orb of bright orange, simply floated about bouncing ever so gently around the pot as if suspended by some invisible thing.  It was a sunny day as I set to my task, and the water glinted with golden hues in the surreal pool of orange.

I was wondering if I could entice you with this recipe for juicy mejdool dates, slowly melted in ghee until thick and syrupy. I toss in some brown rice crispies, dried coconut and a bunch of chopped almonds resulting in a slightly gooey, moist, ghee-ey, crunchy and not overly sweet treat.

My date bars will hit every level of any sweet craving you may have and guess what? It’s not too bad for you. With no refined sugars or flours and made with just a few natural ingredients you will be laughing your way into Valentines day!

I’m already drooling thinking about making these again for the Super Bowl.  They are healthy, full of flavor and a party favorite.  I first came up with this recipe last year for a Super Bowl party, and have made them many times since.  They were definitely a hit and are a must have for your party too.

During my earlier years in the United States after I was married, living in New Jersey, our really close friends would host a Super bowl party every year.  One year the girls had the bright idea of playing tag football with the boys before the big game.  Well,

“Quinoa Ladoo! You can’t be serious!” I’m asked in disbelief as I serve the little brown malty balls of delight with an afternoon cup of chaa. Yes, my friends, you heard that right, Quinoa!

Let me tell you a little story…

A couple of months ago I stared wide-eyed in disbelief at a recipe before me. I was excited at first, then immediately I slumped back into my seat and thought to myself, “Really?!”

Okay, I am exaggerating just a little… but if you’ve donned the gluten free hat, you know what I mean.  “What if… what if it was another gluten free disaster like so many before?”  Although the question loomed before me, Continue reading
