Mushroom and Leek Curry

Mushroom and leek curry A delicious vegan curry that is not too spicy and goes well with Black rice. A weekday summer meal sorted.


I just revisited a post I had written in 2014 and 4 years later I feel the same :I have been feeling sluggish and groggy past few days as the weather has been playing havoc on my allergies.I look like the  T.V serial star who has cried all day.
Some days everything is fine but the other days it is not so good. Haven’t made anything spicy for many days, cooking has come down to just what is required. I have been looking for something that does not trigger my allergy. Whoever said nothing is constant I strongly disagree cos allergies are!

On the brighter side this video  just WON the best Indian blogger video contest. It is not a   a great video you must be thinking and I too agree with you but the motivation is huge for someone who started out so soo late on Youtube.
