Simple Tastes 4 – a Grown-up Hot, Sweet and Sour Sauce

Asha is back with another quick and easy recipe for busy parents. While our Simple Tastes recipes are aimed at families, sometimes parents yearn for a ‘grown-up’ meal. It’s a great idea to get kids used to lots of flavours when they are little, but there are some dishes that most children will eye with suspicion, including anything too spicy.

This is another Nigella-inspired dish (I have aspirations to be a Domestic Goddess, but, oddly enough, the rush of domestic life gets in the way), but is probably isn’t one for the kids unless your children have adventurous taste buds. What it is fantastic for, however, are those nights when you have given the children something easy for dinner (for we all have fish finger evenings!) but want something yourself that is delicious but hardly little effort. This is the one. Trust me.
