My Name Is Spice

Raw coconut chutney.

Imogen Taylor - Thursday, December 22, 2016


Here is the recipe for this raw coconut chutney. I have served it on chunky slices of cucumber nestled in spinach leaves🌿🍃🌱

Recipe: First you blitz a whole lemon plus quater of an onion. Then add 1 cup of coconut (which should be soaked in water overnight). Add 1 tsp each of cumin-seed and mustard-seed, a pinch of salt and half a de-seeded red chilli.

Now add 1 bunch of mint, and a bunch of fresh coriander or any other herbs you have in abundance.

Add a little water and continue to blitz in the blender. I like to add 4 dates to this but check for flavour before you do this.


Once it is thoroughly amalgamated; form into quenelles and place on top of the cucumber slices for a cool, refreshing Summer treat!


Wholemeal Chapattis with homemade vegan coriander pesto

Imogen Taylor - Saturday, December 17, 2016

This was a cheat's dish since I bought the chapattis rather than making them; and had already made the pesto for something else..

Actually I was between meals and needed a snack (I don't really keep set meal times).

So all that was required was to prepare the cucumber ribbons, and a meal was at hand! Healthy eating is so easy if you keep a few spreads/pestos/marinades/spice-pastes in the fridge, ready to go



Cauliflower pakoras with chilli sambal

Imogen Taylor - Sunday, July 24, 2016


Why has it taken me so many years to cook pakoras when I have been eating them my whole adult life? These are Cauliflower pakoras; I have par-cooked cauliflower florets before dipping them in the chickpea batter which I have spiced with my new "Sri Lankan spice mix". I have served them with a chilli sambal. 

For the batter; chickpea flour, salt and water. (baking powder is optional). Whisk till you have a thick batter. Adjust with more water or more flour according to desired consistency.
