In all the excitement of the article about me in The Telegraph, I completely forgot to post last weekend’s Mint recipe. I’ll confess my head was temporarily turned.
A huge thank you, though, to Telegraph food writer Xanthe Clay who, along with photographer Heathcliff O’Malley came out from London a few weeks ago to attend one of our Upar Wali Chai tea parties. They also ventured into Old Delhi to sample some of my favourite street food. Xanthe’s feature is lovely and Heathcliff’s pictures gorgeous – including a sweet one of the whole family – Spike the dog and all.
Anyway, back down to earth. The fig rolls I wrote about in Mint last week are one of the best things I’ve made recently. If, like me, you ate the packaged variety as a kid, you’ll wonder why you never tried making this far superior home made version. The orange and cardamom are perfect partners for the soft sweet figginess.
