The recipes in the kits are designed as a guide. Feel free to make these dishes your own. If you fancy a bit more sauciness in your life add a splash of coconut milk or an extra tin of tomatoes. The kits are so versatile; rub into fish meat or fish before throwing on the BBQ, or in the oven. Go crazy and experiment!
These sugar free kits are low in fat; for an even healthier option the cooking oil, can be replaced with spray oil. The cream in the Tikka Masala and Korma can be replaced with coconut milk, crème fraiche or yoghurt.
Feel free to substitute the meat for other types of meat e.g. lamb/pork If using alternative meat adjust cooking times depending on the meat. Any vegetables or mixed vegetables can be used. Tofu and soya also work great with the kits. When cooking with fish it’s best to use a firm fleshed, robust fish such as monkfish or halibut which doesn’t fall apart in the pan too quickly.
KEEP CALM! You have a range of options to reduce the heat of the dish. Add a dash of lemon or lime juice. The acid should help in reducing the heat. Vinegar also is a good addition. Spooning in more liquid can help. Dairy helps to temper the spices, stir in a couple of tablespoons of natural/Greek yoghurt, sour cream or coconut milk.
Eating raita made out of natural or Greek yogurt helps to cool things down as does a sweet or salty lassi.
