Smoky pomegranate chicken

So humour me on this one. I know it doesn’t sound like the most natural or classic combination but you’ll be glad you made this! It’s so much more than pomegranate¬†and chicken (figuratively speaking … it actually is pretty much just pomegranate, chicken and onions). It’s got depth of flavour, tastes smoky, a bit fiery,…

Curry with kachumber salad

This is a lovely curry that is healthy, cheap to buy for, relatively quick to prepare, and can be very easily scaled up or down depending on how many people/meals you’re cooking for.
