Date Slices

Date Slices

This recipe really stands the test of time and I have been making it since the late 1970's. It is oat based and has no added sugar in the date filling. Made with a plant based or dairy free fat then it is suitable for vegans. What the current rage of clean eating, vegan and sugar free cakes, breakfast bars and superfoods then I suggest that you just give this old fashioned recipe a try. Dried apples, apricots and prunes all work well in the filling. Just substitute for the dates.

Durban Chicken Curry

Durban Chicken Curry

A hot and spicy chicken curry, originating from Durban, South Africa. Unlike traditional Indian recipes, a Durban curry does not usually include cream, milk, yoghurt or nuts, and very little butter or ghee is used. In Durban oil is used, with a lot of chilli, cumin and coriander and the vibrant colour comes from the tomatoes. Potatoes are added too. This curry is always best the next day and in Durban might be served as a Bunny Chow, in a hollowed out loaf of bread.
