Social Media is Social

Why do you use social media?

If your answer is anything other than to be “sociable” you may be doing it wrong. Trying to sell products or increase traffic to your blog are not the only reasons to be on Twitter or Facebook.

Sweet and Sour Chicken

Sweet and Sour Chicken

When I was a child I used to hate sweet and sour sauces with a passion, I never even told my parents (I am not sure why – if I had I’m sure they wouldn’t have made me eat it!) I don’t even really remember what it was, but I think it was the taste of pineapple.

Red Onion Chicken Curry

If this is an authentic Indian curry, I don’t know what it is called. I made this using a similar ingredient list and method to this Rojan Josh.

Plum Yoghurt Cake

This is the second yoghurt cake I’ve made in the last week. This is by far the prettier of the two.

total yoghurt haul

I got a lot of yoghurt this week from the kind people at Total. When it all arrived on Monday, I wasn’t sure what to do with it all. I now have a fair idea use some in salad dressings, some in curries of different types, some in cakes and lastly I plan to make some frozen yoghurt.

I’m really excited by all the different possibilities, the fact that the second shelf of my fridge is full of yoghurt means I am going to have to get creative, and yes I find that exciting.

Tonight I made one of my favourite yoghurt dishes, in fact I have mentioned it here before. But this time I am going to post it myself as I have made a few changes! You can see the original full recipe here.

As you will have guessed by now indian inspired food is sort of a passion of mine, this dish is easy, and although I have never cooked it on a barbecue I am sure it would be perfect. (Lucky you if you are getting the weather for it – as we certainly aren’t.)
