For anyone looking forward to enjoying a Christmas with a difference, chef and author, Anjula Devi, has created a Christmas feast with hints of carefully selected spices, all containing amazing health properties. Anjula’s Christmas banquet features:

  • Caramelised carrots with chilli flakes, jaggery and smoked ginger juice. Finished with a drop of orange liquor.
  •  Sticky parsnips with maple syrup and mandarin peel. Finished with nigella seeds.
  •  Roast potatoes with burnt garlic, cumin and red onion.
  •  Brussels sprouts with crushed coriander seeds, fennel and twice-roasted chestnuts in butter and garlic.
  •  24 hour marinated roast turkey with garlic, cumin, roasted dry crushed chillies, crushed coriander seeds, natural yogurt, pomegranate, lemon zest and juice. Finished with fresh chopped   coriander.
  •  Sausages wrapped in bacon, with caramelised shallots and fenugreek leaves
  •  Cranberry sauce with a hint of star anise and black peppercorns.
  •  Bread sauce with cinnamon, cloves, bay leaf and roasted onion. Finished with a little chilli oil.

Celebrated chef and champion of authentic Indian cooking, Anjula Devi is head of her own eponymous ‘Authentic Indian Cookery School’. Anjula has never been one to follow the crowd, and she loves creating healthy and unique recipes.

This talent began as a gift shared by her beloved father during a childhood in which he imparted all of his culinary wisdom. The essential spices, which form the foundation of much traditional Indian cuisine, remain central to Anjula’s culinary approach. The fifty-year-old Tiffin tin, which her father took with him to work every single day, is always close by, even today.

Speaking about Indian cuisine, Anjula says “There is a whole treasure chest of recipes, flavour combinations and beautiful ingredients which are often completely neglected, along with all of their amazing health benefits. All of my recipes are balanced and healthy; I love cooking with fresh vegetables. I want to inspire as many people as possible to cook delicious, healthy food, just like my father did all those years ago.”

Anjula’s Indian inspired Christmas dishes make a great alternative to traditional roast dinners.

Anjula has a ‘How To’ cookery book and range of Anjula Devi cooking utensils currently online and in Lakeland stores throughout the UK. http://www.lakeland.co.uk/anjula

Her new cookery book ‘Spice for Life’ is being released in spring 2017
