From mild to hot, curries are a winter essential. They are also easy to make, with plenty of variety to suit your tastebuds. Depending on the ingredients you choose - vegetables, meat, fish, legumes or chicken - you can choose from a wide choice of soups. Add additional ingredients such as coconut milk, garlic, herbs, and other spices to enhance natural flavours and you’ll soon have the perfect curry. Serve with fresh bread and you’re good to go.
Noodles are super easy and fast. Cook a larger batch on the stovetop or make single portions in minutes in the microwave. Stick to instant flavour sachets or make your own flavours using a selection of your favourite spices. You can also use noodles as a base to make noodle soup, noodle bowls, and various other dishes. Add vegetables and meat to make a heartier dish that can be enjoyed on the couch as you settle in for a Netflix binge in front of the fire or heater.
