These stuffed savoury pastries are a traditional Indian favourite. Lamb and spices are cooked together to create a mouthwatering filling for the easy to make pastry. The recipe may seem complex, but it's actually fairly simple. Enjoy!

This is a tasty starter that can be found in every Indian restaurant around the West of Scotland. I’ve tried loads of recipes but this one really hits the spot in terms of authenticity in relation to the best of restaurant recipes. In Scotland we eat our spiced onions with Indian poppadoms but you could serve these as a chutney, side dish or dip.

A deliciously crunchy and satisfying Indian starter, which is perfect when served with a variety of sauces. These chicken pakoras are quick and easy to make and taste fantastic.

These tasty chickpea-based balls, flavoured with garlic, chilli and lots of fresh coriander, make a delicious alternative to rice or potatoes. Cooked traditionally as an Indian dish the balls would be deep-fried, but here they are baked.
