The pungent sauce is an ideal partner to steamed rice or any indian bread.

Meryala Kodi Vepudu – this spicy dry dish originates from the Southern India province of Chettinad.

The region was on a historic spice trade route and is famous for combining flavours of star anise, tamarind, chilli and cloves.

It goes well with cucumber raita (yoghurt and cucumbers), steamed rice, naans or rotis.

This aromatic, creamy and mild vegetarian curry combines paneer with the sweetness of fresh green peas.

Murgh Makhani (butter chicken) – Murgh Makhani is originally a Punjabi dish. It is rich, creamy and full of flavour making it an all time favourite curry to prepare and eat.

The dish is made in two stages. Firstly, the chicken is marinated in a spicy yoghurt marinade and grilled, and then added to a delicious creamy tomato curry sauce.

It is best enjoyed with the classic accompaniment of rice and naan bread.

Kheema aloo – this is a popular spicy minced lamb or beef dish from the North-West Frontier.

It is mildly spiced, and can be served with rice or naan bread.

This recipe is delicately flavoured with caramelised onion and sweetened with tomato to make a simple wholesome and easy to prepare dish.

Tadka refers to the final tempering of the lentils with hot spices, which are gently fried to release their fragrance and flavours.

Kodu Kura (chicken curry) – Kodu Kura quite simply translates as chicken curry, but is a sophisticated dish prepared with cinnamon, cardamom and cloves.

The light curry is cooked at the final stage in a creamy yoghurt mixture combined with cashew nut, coconut and poppy seed paste to give it a korma consistency, and finished with a splash of lemon or lime.

Newcastle food store aims to be Britain’s best

mmm glug logosA Newcastle food and drink store wants local shoppers who are shunning the supermarkets to help it carry off a top UK food award for independent retailers.

Grainger Market-based mmm… and glug… is in the running for the 2015 Farm Shop & Deli Awards and hopes that the award can come to the north east for the first time.

The store, a major supporter of small food producers both in and out of the region, has been on a mission to get more people cooking and eating since it opened six years ago.

The Farm Shop & Deli Awards recognise the very best standards in the UK’s independent, speciality retail market.

And, despite being up against delis and shops in the UK that have been established far longer, owner Simone Clarkin, 51, is determined to show that the region can compete with the whole of the country.

She said: “When we first opened mmm… and then glug… we wanted to get more local people talking about and more importantly, eating great food and drink – and not just relying on the choices supermarkets offer.

“By working with award-winning local producers such as Zen Bakers, Davenports Chocolates, Wylam Brewery, Mr Vikkis, Gilchesters and Anarchy Brewery we have helped raise the profile of the fantastic food and drink being produced in the region.

“But we also look beyond the region by aiming to supply top cooking ingredients that many of our customers and chefs say they can’t get anywhere but London or even abroad.

“We are hoping north east twitterers, food lovers, cooks and chefs can vote and see the accolade coming to the region on behalf of our great suppliers and the food-loving north east as a whole.”

Food lovers can vote for mmm… online at http://www.farmshopanddelishow.co.uk/entry/mmm-food-drink-ltd

The Awards developed from Founding Partner Olives Et Al’s Deli of the Year, saw nearly 300 entries in 2014, doubling the amount from previous year.

The overall winner will be announced at Farm Shop & Deli Show on 20 April 2015 at Birmingham’s NEC.

mmm… and the recently opened glug… which stocks hundreds of craft beers, wine and ciders is based at 10-13 Grainger Arcade in the Grainger Market.

The store can be followed online at www.twitter.com/mmm_newcastle where over 16,000 followers regularly swap foodie hints, tips, recipes and recommendations.

Trotter’s Independent Condiments at mmm…

What we love most at mmm… about Fife-based Trotter’s Independent Condiments is how they specialise in sourcing, developing and producing products that are unusual or unobtainable in the British market.

Byam Trotter, the owner of Trotters intends to keep increasing the range as they discover and develop new products.

Their most recent additions, which we stock at mmm…, are Mojito Marmalade and A bloody Shame (see below).

What we sell at mmm…

A bloody shame at mmmA Bloody Shame – Byam Trotter loves bloody Mary cocktails and he is a big fan of Bloody mary Chutney, but he had never found one where you can taste the vodka.

His friend Rosanna suggested we just take the Vodka out and call it ‘A Bloody Shame’. So that’s what he did.

Great as a pizza topping, with cold meats and baked potatoes, sandwiches, a pasta sauce or as salsa for crisps and tortillas.

Trotters pepper jelly and dipping sauceSweet pepper dipping sauce – is made using the same Peppers (scotch bonnet and sweet) as Trotter’s Hot Pepper Jelly.

The dip, unlike the jelly, is runny with bits of pepper in it for a different texture and consistency and can be used for different things.

Great with crisps, tempura prawns, salad dressings, stir drys, mayonnaise (as a dip), pate, egg mayo sandwiches and omelettes.

Uncle Allan’s Chutney – is a raw fruit chutney made from apples, onions, dates and sultanas.

Instead of cooking, the chutney it sits in a vat and socks in Malt vinegar for a few days before going into the jars where it sits for at least a month to mature before selling.

It also benefits form a subtle kick from a hint of Cayenne Pepper. Great with mature cheeses, sandwiches, cold meats, leftover lunches and picnics.

Mojito jelly – is literally a Mojito turned into jelly. It is non-alcoholic, whether that is a good thing or not we will leave to your own judgement but you can still taste the rum and it is delicious.

Great with oily fish such as mackerel and salmon, oysters, lamb (as a mint sauce), ice cream and arm desserts such as crumbles (it will melt into a nice sauce).

Trotters mostardo at mmmMostarda – is an Italian recipe which is a fruit based condiment that gains quite a kick from a healthy jolt of powdered mustard and mustard seeds.

It is one of the standard condiments served with cold meats in Northern Italy. The condiment also goes extremely well with any cheese but is especially good with hard cheese.

Great with making any sandwich into a luxury lunch, ploughman’s, cold meats and mixed leaves, bacon roll, cold meats, baked potatoes, coleslaw, cheese, beans (yes, really), shepherds pie, curries, stews, casseroles and porridge!

Suzanne’s marmalade – a seville orange marmalade with the addition of lap sang Souchong tea to give it a smokey aroma.

The name comes from the Leonard Cohen song of the same name ‘Suzanne’ where one of the lyrics is “She brings you tea and oranges that come all the way from china.”
