I’m not sure where the idea of a pie in the pan came from, but it sparked our imagination when we realised there would be less washing up! I think the flavours and warmth lend itself well to the autumn. There are so many varieties of squash and pumpkins this time of year, so you can experiment with whichever you can get your hands on.
I’m pretty sure I’ve yet to meet someone who doesn’t like daal. There are many different types and varieties of a daal but once you know the essentials, it’s easy to throw one together.
It’s deep umami flavours and “meaty” minced mushroom texture always pleases the crowd…
This is a great dish for a cold winter evening or when you just need some comfort food to warm you and your belly up. You can make a big batch and freeze the rest in portions to re heat when you need a quick tasty dinner.
