The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.
It’s amazing to make a dish from completely from things that you’ve grown yourself.
That’s what I did today.
Achocha curry may not be something that you’ve heard of. (The voice recognition had it down as a teacher curry!)
And it’s not something I’ve ever tried.
So we shall see what it actually tastes like later.
But more to the point it contains potatoes, onions, garlic, chillis, coriander and tomatoes that we’ve grown.
I found the recipe on with the cottage so I’m not going to write it here but that was my reference point.
The achocha was something we grew for the first time this year. The seeds came from the heritage seed library.
The ones I collected today will be dried and stirred for next year. As you can see from the photo, they are strange looking black seeds.
The only ingredient that didn’t come from our patch was the turmeric powder.
The plan is that I’m going to then make gluten free flatbreads to go with it using a tortilla recipe.
I’ll be putting that in another post soon.
