    I've searched all over the internet for a recipe for salt and pepper chicken and they all sounded very difficult so I experimented myself and managed to make one a lot easier. I've always wondered how the takeaways and restaurants make them, so here is my way.

    A family recipe, this pate has a roux base, and is softer than geletine based pate, making it great for spreading on toast. Pate is a flexible dish - this could be made with lamb or calf liver, or peppers could be mixed in with the onions

    Samosas are traditionally deep-fried, but in this delicious version they are made with crunchy filo pastry, brushed with a little oil and baked. Serve with fruit chutney or yoghurt raita and a mixed salad for a casual, light lunch.
