Chicken tikka masala served with rice, garnished with fresh coriander and yoghurt

Chicken Tikka Masala

So the America’s leading meteorologist – groundhog Phil – predicted an early spring this year. Phew! I think all of us living in the northern hemisphere and having to deal with snow and frost are relieved to hear that. However, it doesn’t look like spring is about to come within the next few days, sadly. We still have some cold days ahead of us, and what can be better for those occasions than spicy, warming, delicious food? Curry type dishes are my go-to in winter. Today, I’d like to share my recipe for Chicken Tikka Masala!

Zapiekanki - oven baked baguette on a plate

“Zapiekanki” – Oven Baked Baguettes

“Zapiekanki” – or, in English, oven baked baguettes, are among the most popular types of Polish street food. I never thought it could be just a Polish thing. The concept is so simple and uses ingredients known and used worldwide – it just had to be present everywhere, right? So when three girls from three different countries (years ago!) came to my secondary school to have classes with us for a week, it truly shocked me when they unanimously declared that “zapiekanki” were their favourite thing in my country. Here’s a recipe for upgraded, high-quality home-made version of, I suppose, a typically Polish dish?

Honey Glazed Carrots With Orange (Or Tangerines)

They’re soft and delicate and make a perfect side for chicken dishes (but not only those!).

Chickpea, tomato and bell pepper curry served with quinoa, garnished with rice

Chickpea Tomato And Bell Peppers Curry

I’m a great fan of curry dishes of all kinds, for two reasons. First of all, their spiciness is so perfectly warming – ideal for someone like me, who believes that every weather below 30°C is basically ice age (no, I don’t live in Sahara Desert, I live in a climate where 30°C is a rather rare occurrence). Secondly, vegetable curry stews are extremely practical – there’s not much preparation needed, some of the ingredients come in cans… you just throw everything in the pot, let it cook for a quarter or two – and that’s it, dinner for 2 days done and dusted.

And I’m sure some of those resolutions were to get back on track with healthy eating and repair the damage done by overeating during Christmas season. If you happen to be looking for a healthy snack, an alternative to store-bought potato crisps, then making vegetable crisps at home can be a great idea. They’re much, much healthier, super easy to make, and you can use many different vegetables instead of regular, boring potatoes. Here’s a recipe for home-made, healthy, oven-baked sweet potato crisps. So, so delicious and crispy! A great idea for a party snack too – just increase the ingredients accordingly.
