Again a recipe from the Book of Buns, and five stars for this one. This book is just filled with superb recipes. The mixture of added spices: garlic, cumin seeds, fresh and dried coriander, and chilli really appealed to me. This gives only 8 buns, so it would be worth doubling up on the ingredients for a party or large picnic. I used 200g stoneground wholemeal flour from Charlecote Mill
Not something we had in Mauritius, but the spices reminded me of gateau piment. As I love coriander I used a large bunch of fresh coriander. This 'large' bunch is an equivalent idea to saying '25cs cotomili'. A large bunch is a 'packet' from Sainsbury's lol. Anyway coriander to taste, and I love coriander.
The smell in the kitchen , and the taste of a warm bun with a beer to start off Friday evening was just the ticket. I even made a lovely vegetable curry with coconut milk, fresh ginger, other spices, cauliflower, carrot, cashew nuts, chickpeas and of course fresh coriander. And talk about serendipity, when we went for a little walk today, we popped into Robert Dyas, and there on a shelf was a copy of the Hairy Bikers Great Curries for just under £6.
