Celebrating the Natural Larder of Scotland and the Royal Highland Show


This week we are talking all things Scottish to celebrate the 179th Royal Highland Show, near Edinburgh this weekend..  A show celebrating the best of food, farming and rural life.

This is the 4th year that we have exhibited on the stand of East Lothian Food and Drink and we are proud to share the stand with East Lothian's best producers and produce. See our blog post about these incredible producers here.

If you are coming to the show, come and see us!  We are excited to share that we are running a massive Special Show Offer of 2 for 1 on absolutely everything allowing you to make huge savings!  See details below.

To celebrate all the wonderful food that is Scotland's larder, this week, we are showcasing our favorite Scottish / Indian fusion recipes.  These are just some of the simple and tasty dishes that you can make with Spice Pots.

FROM THE SEA

Spiced Cullen Skink  This is a fusion recipe from our Scottish Selection.  A Scottish classic with an Indian twist!  Warming and delicious, hearty enough to be a main meal. Serve with crusty bread smothered in butter.

Spiced Baked Salmon  A simple spiced salmon recipe and a great option for a mid-week dinner.  This can be on the table in 30 minutes so is included in our Express Selection. Serve with a green salad and some new potatoes for a delicious meal.

Tandoori Masala Fish and ChipA fusion between our traditional fish and chips and the flavours of India.

FROM THE FIELD

Pea and Potato Samosas  This recipe is super easy (even easier if you have leftover, cooked vegetables).  I mostly use filo pastry but you can use puff pastry. My kids love these and of course, you can change the filling according to what you have lurking in the fridge. 

Vegan Potato Curry  An easy vegan curry recipe.  We used potatoes and peas but you can of course add any vegetables you have in your fridge.  You could also add a tin of coconut milk if you would like a curry with more sauce.  This recipe is super easy.

Aloo Ki Tikki (potato patties)  These are small potato patties often sold at street food stalls in Northern India.  A lovely starter or snack, served with chutney, raita or a simple salad.  

FROM THE WILD

Goan Beef Curry  Delicious, slow cooked curry from Goa. There are 10 different spices in this mix, so it is full of flavour but also quite a bit of heat.  If you don't like it too hot, just use less of the Spice Pot!   Please also see alternative recipes to use with our Goan Spice PotGoan Fish Curry and Goan Sweet Potato and Chickpea Curry.

Venison Bhuna Curry  Venison is one of the most nutritious of all red meats and a good source of healthy protein. Meat from deer has been important to the human diet since prehistoric times.Venison has less than 2% fat – less than skinless chicken – and higher levels of iron than any other red meat. It’s also full of B vitamins.The richness of the meat works so well with our fragrant bhuna blend.

Barbecue Pork Tenderloin with Satay Sauce  This is one of our family's all time favorite weekend lunches, in the summer on the barbecue or in the winter in the oven.  The satay sauce is so yummy.  Just add slivers of cucumber and spring onions to wraps and you've got an easy, tasty meal for the whole family.

Spiced Mince and Tatties  A fun fusion dish, featured in our Indian Scottish Selection box.  One of Scotland's favorite dishes, with an Indian twist!

All these recipes and more are available in our cookbook, which is available to buy here.
