Welcome to the first episode of my brand new series, ’Goodness in the Everyday’, a collection of Ponytail favourite go-to recipes that Lauren happily serves regularly at home. This unassuming Potato and Rosemary tart is a sure crowd pleaser and is everything snug experience.
This weekend we are so excited to present a spicy little mini-series, "Tastiest Life India" to you from the Ponytail Foodtube channel! For this first instalment, Lauren is in Mumbai to learn how to make the utmost staple dish for Indians, yellow dahl, guided by Jaswin Dias of the Taj Wellington Mews.
This Sunday I’m pulling out my favourite recipe, my tastiest Burmese chicken curry that I discovered on a trip to Myanmar a couple years back. I watched a curry stall lady prepare this dish out back behind her side of the road curry stall where we communicated with smiles and many animated hand movements. I will always think of her when I have this super tasty stew that is wonderfully mellow from the addition of lemongrass to the turmeric and red onion based curry paste.

Nam prik gapi is almost a staple here in Thailand. It’s super versatile and adds a punch to seasonal vegetables, rice, egg, fish, and many other goodies. Here we show you how to make our quick version!
Steaming is a wonderful way to lock in goodness that your food has to offer. It’s also going to ensure that flavour is locked in, given that you don’t overcook your food in the steamer which is often why this method of cookery has had a bad rep in the past. We urge you to try your eggs in the morning steamed with a dash of soy sauce and perhaps some sesame oil drizzled on top. It’s best when the egg is cooked to a perfect medium, where the yolk is firm on the outside and gooey in the middle. So here we have made a simple steaming guide for you to practise with - whether you have a steamer or just a regular saucepan!
