    This is a Pakistani recipe for a spicy curry. My mum made this dish, and I like it very much. You must try it. This dish is best served with basmati rice, chapattis or naan bread.

    This is the best vanilla sponge mix I have ever made or tasted and is so easy to make. The key to it is how long you whisk it for and the baking time. You can use the recipe to make 1 whole sponge cake. Just lengthen the cooking time to around 25 to 30 minutes (although the trick is to judge by sight and bounce!)
