Dahl makhani is usually a tomato based curry that is heavy on the butter and cream. I love it but that amount of butter and cream can leave e feeling a little ick. It could also be all the onion. So I came up with this onion free, lighter version that’s still creamy in texture and full of fragrant flavour.
Yeah, you read that right. That word is definitely not Italian is it? But sugo is. Gochujang is a a spicy fermented bean paste from Korea. And it’s pungent sweet and spicy notes give a totally new and really interesting twist to traditional spaghetti and meatballs. I know it sounds like weird fusion cooking but it’s full of flavour and defines ‘winter warmer’.
Miso, mushrooms and sesame. It’s got to be one of my favourite flavour combinations. The sticky mushrooms are so good with the refreshing crisp lettuce and nutty sba noodles. And that dressing is where it’s at.
