Betel Leaves with Crab Salad, Crispy Noodles, Lime, Ginger Mayonnaise & Salmon roe

One of my favourite entrees when I go out is some sort of deliciousness wrapped up in a betel leaf. My recipe for Betel leaves with crab salad, crispy noodles and a lime and ginger mayonnaise is delicious and if you don't have the betel leaves you can serve this salad in a lettuce leaf, tart shell, or roll it up in rice papers.
Palak Halloumi Curry

Indian Palak Halloumi Curry

One of my favourite curries is Palak Paneer, a delicately spiced curry made mainly of creamy spinach with fried paneer - a simple Indian cheese stirred through. As a bit of a twist I have used my favourite cheese as a Paneer substitute - Halloumi - and it all honesty, it doesn't disappoint. In fact, the cubes of salty squeaky fried Halloumi makes this the best Indian Palak Halloumi curry I have tasted.
