CHAAT! s GROW YOUR OWN CURRY CHALLENGE!
Be part of our homegrown challenge and share your pics with us!
This year, we here at Chaat! Magazine are pulling our green fingers out and growing our own Indian curry recipe ingredients. As a curry magazine, it’s only fitting, but here’s the thing – we’d like you to give it your best shot too!
Yes, the idea of growing plants that we consider to be very exotic can be worrying to say the least, but with a little expert advice and the right environment growing your own curry ingredients can be incredibly rewarding.
The latest issue of Chaat! features a 10 page feature on growing your own, full of information about exotic vegetables with Mridula Baljekar, top tips from Pippa Greenwood and RHS horticulturalist, Mario De Pace, and a really inspiring interview with food-writer-turned-producer, Jojo Tulloh.
“When you make someone something really nice that you grew and just picked, its so rewarding. And you can grow in a windowbox, you don’t even need a garden!” Jojo told us. “People seem to think that if they don’t have an enormous garden where they can grow rows and rows of vegetables, that they might as well not grow anything at all. But even if you only have steps and you grew in pots on your steps, you’d get an enormous amount of pleasure from them, and quite a bit of crop!”
Along with our friends at Plants4Presents, who are huge advocates of growing your own curry (even creating a dedicated display every year at the RHS) we want you to get growing too and share you pictures of your planting progress on our Facebook and/or Twitter page for your chance to be featured in Chaat!’s Winter edition!
