Turmeric Pie Pastry

Turmeric pie pastry can be made with either turmeric butter or simply adding around 2 tablespoons of turmeric and a teaspoon of cumin to the pastry. It’s delicious and serves a malleable crust! Though it is best made with our turmeric butter or homemade butter at least.

The pastry can be used to make an array of delicious dishes! Here are one’s that we recommend:

  • Peach Tart – a soft and sweet tart which goes well with ice cream.
  • Cinnamon Pineapple Pie. This pie is extremely delectable! The cinnamon and nutmeg gives it such an awe-inspiring flavour!

Onion Bread

Onion bread is a delicious and a great way to use up any leftover onions! You can also add garlic to give a much stronger flavour as well! If you have any dried herbs they would also give it a great flavour too!

We used red onions since they’re healthier than white onions– you can choose whichever onion you wish to choose. For any condiments or spreads you’d like to use with your bread we have homemade butter which is much more delicious than the store-bought variant.

You can use any other oil other than olive oil; ghee is preferable though.

Pineapple Cobbler

Pineapple Cobbler is delicious and a great way to create a dessert with canned ingredients! With only the basic ingredients like sugar, flour and milk along with the liquids and the delicious pineapple! These together create this delicate dessert being filling and well- awesome!

We toasted the flour in order to make the cobbler taste much better, you can find the recipe for toasted flour here. If you’re looking for something else you can make with canned pineapples we have a pineapple pie recipe as well.

You can alternatively add butter into this recipe but we sadly didn’t have any available for when I had baked this up. Adding butter turns the topping of the cobbler from partially dry to nice and moist.

Flatbread

There are a lot of types of flatbread out there! We’ll be doing the basic type but linking multiple variations in this recipe post! Along with being a fast food to cook- it’s also amazingly cheap and you can pretty much use any oil you want! Save money on store-bought flatbreads and make these for less than a pound!

Usually, I use wheat flour but I made besan ki roti’s a few weeks ago and they were delicious! If you’ve got any besan flour to use – make sure to try those! Making flatbread usually has the same method – so you don’t need to worry if you change it a bit. Less water makes them drier- less oil makes them harder to roll. Just make sure you’ve got the right amount of those to the amount of flour used. Never forget that a pinch of salt goes a really long way.

  • You can use crushed cardamon with this recipe to give this a really refreshingly nice taste! You can watch that version on YouTube.

Egg Cake

This egg cake prioritises the rubbery texture that is created through the use of multiple eggs. You can add fruit to this recipe like bananas to give the cake substance other than its rubber texture. It’s a simple yet delicious recipe that only utilises 3 base ingredients.

Image step-by-step of the Egg Cake

Mine’s a bit burnt but that’s because it wasn’t cooked when I checked since I had it at the bottom of the oven. Make sure to poke the middle if you think it’s cooked just to check whether it is or not. It will leak if it’s uncooked.

If the cake leaks then make sure to cut the part off when cooked. It should peel off quite easily. I suggest adding flavouring and fruit or nuts to this recipe to make it better if you cook it. Keep in mind that this recipe is a base; so you can experiment with the base.

Apple Cake Crumble
I was out of butter which is why it looks dry but it is still absolutely delicious!

You can make this recipe without the butter that you would use for the crumble, but it will “crumble” a lot if so. I had to go without butter due to having non in my pantry at the time of baking this recipe.

Apologies for the random casserole that appears during the YouTube video, it was purely accidental and YouTube won’t let me clip it out. This is due to the video being under 25 seconds long for some weird YouTube reason.
