I have quite a few recipes for bread without kneading. Just mix roughly leave to rise take out of bowl and fold a few times and more or less it's done. If you want recipe just ask .

Here's a starter for ten:

Herb and Spice Paneer Fritters makes - 12

Preparation Time:- 25 Minutes Cooking Time:- 10 Minutes

Celia Brooks Brown Good Food Magazine - April 2010

1tsp Cumin Seeds

227g/8oz Pack Paneer Cheese – coarsely grated

Handful Coriander Sprigs, stems and leaves – finely chopped

Handful Mint Leaves – finely chopped

1 Spring Onion – finely chopped

Thumb-size piece of Ginger – grated

2 Garlic Cloves – finely grated or crushed

2 Eggs – beaten

2Tbsp Plain Flour

Sunflower Oil – for frying

Lemon Wedges and Sweet Chilli Sauce – to serve

Toast the Cumin Seeds in a large non-stick frying pan for about 1 minute. shaking the pan until a shade darker, taking care not to burn them. Remove from the heat and place the Seeds in a mixing bowl.

Add Everything else. EXCEPT the Oil and Lemon and Chilli Sauce, to the bowl.

Season well and mix very thoroughly.

Using wet hands, take walnut sized handfuls of the Mixture. Then press them into flat little cakes or patties. They can now be chilled until ready to cook or cooked right away.

Reheat the pan over a medium flame and add enough Oil to cover the base of the pan. When hot, add the Fritters, cook until golden underneath, then turn over and cook until golden all over.

Be careful they may splutter slightly.

Drain on kitchen paper and keep warm as you cook batches.

Serve with Lemon Wedges and Sweet Chilli Sauce.

These Cheese Fritters make a tasty starter or serve as a main with Rice and Fresh Vegetables.

And my bonus answer for 5 points (no conferring):

Thai Coconut lentil Soup

½ an onion - finely chopped

2 or 3 cloves garlic - very finely chopped

½” cube ginger - very finely chopped

100g green lentils

100g creamed coconut

1 chicken stock cube

2 teaspoons green Thai curry paste

2 desert spoons brown sugar

Juice of one lime

Couple of kafir lime leaves

Stick of lemon grass - split

Pour boiling water over lentils and leave to soak

Fry onion, garlic and ginger till translucent in a little oil.

Add in lentils and stir for a few minutes

Add the water the lentils soaked in.

Add the coconut, curry paste, sugar, lime juice

Add the lime leaves and lemon grass

Stir until coconut has melted into the liquid

Simmer about half an hour gently.

Remove lime leaves and lemon grass.

Whiz in blender till lentils are fairly smooth - the soup should still have a bit of texture.

Reheat and serve.

Serves 4

I did comment last week at the B'fast buffet.

these yanks certainly dont know how to cook bacon!

And its difficult to dip in your 'eggs over easy'

However something that was always missing on all the buffets I saw in the US over the years.

Tinned tomatoes!

Last week in Vegas, I saw them for the first time, but only for one day on the buffet.

They were labelled 'Stewed Tomatoes' or was it 'Tomato stew'?

Caribean chicken, made easy!! I make this every couple of weeks, goes down a treat!

Either served with rice & peas or salad.

Get chicken, Drumb sticks, legs or wings work well.. If your using legs/drumsticks take the skin off, wings chop into three pieces at the joints, you dont want that pointy end bit so chuck that.

Make yer marinade, Asda do tubs of chicken seasoning, caribean bbq chicken seasoning, jamaican or jerk. I use the normal chicken seasoning as i find it tastes the same as caribean bbq (& is a little cheaper) So add around half a tub into a bowl with a few teaspoons of normal oil & give a good stir till its nice & runny but still thickish, Cover your chicken in the marinade & pop into a overn proof dish, Cover in finely chopped onions & peppers, leave in the fridge for at least an hour & cook on gas mark 6 for around 30mins till cooked.

Youll need to soak yer black eyes pea's ove rnight, not sure about kidney beans as i hate the things so i never use them.. Your BE peas need to be boiled for around 45 mins when cooking, cook rice in a seperate pan.. Once cooked, add the rice & peas together along with a nice generous helping of the juices from the chicken youv just cooked & give it a good stir.

& served! Voila... So easy yet so tasty, a must try for chicken fans. Also works great with peri peri sauce! :)

becouse of our lifestyle know i never plan my meals ahead now but always make sure we have the basics for a meal of somekind in the house bread eggs milk potatoes pasta for the lads tined beans toms ect i usually keep frozen veggies mince and chicken portions in the frezer and we can always find a meal all be it something quick cheap and easy like i had last night tomatoes and poached egg on toast ,or maybe a casorole or shepaerds pie we can prepear be befor we go out part cook and pop in the oven for about half hour giving us time to have a cuppa and a few mins relax befor we eat.

dave dose most of the cooking in our house now and often boils more potatoes and veggies than we eat so i get mince out freezer and turn it into a sheperds pie to pop in the frezer for another time or in fridge for next day dosent waste food and saves time prepearing for another day. with a small baby in the house i know time soon flies away and prepearing two or more meals in one day can help when my sister was working she would cook and plate up all her pototatoes and vegitables for the week on one day and freeze them and just cook the meat or fish she wanted for that day just befor they ate she said the only problem was remembering to take out of freezer to defrost befor she went to work. that ment she had more time to relax and enjoy her time off apart from this one day when she did her big cook said it was just as easy to cook large amounts as small amounts but she used to work in works canteen so was used to cooking for more people than most of us are.

thats exactly what we usually do, we'll grab things like Pie's, chicken, mince meat, loads of frozen veg as well as fresh, all the basic things.. tinned beans, pea's, tomato's, pasta, rice... So like you say, theres allways a meal & i usually manage to make something nice every night. we usual have the same-ish things every week, kievs, spag bol, pasta bakes, pie, taco's etc.. All getting abit Samey, but i never know what to plan to have.. im rubbish with things like that! lol

Pataks do a sauce called "Butter Chicken" I only buy such things when on offer but this sauce is a mild spicy dish that can be made into a meal really quickly.

Chop chicken breasts or pieces.

Chop and fry an onion, a few mushrooms, and some chopped peppers if you have them and set aside.

Stir fry the chicken bits and add the sauce from the jar, rinsing the jar with a little water to get the sauce out and cook on low heat for about 10/15 minutes.

I often add bean sprouts and noodles and just serve as-is.

OR you can serve it with a rice of your choice.


Prep 10 minutes

cooking 20/25 minutes-ish.
