It is not everyday you put something on the dinner table and four kids polish them off before you can say ‘go’. That’s what happened with us and so how could we let the fabulous cook of the dish get away. Introducing Ms Poonam Chand, a smart chef of over 30 years. She is not your fly-by cooking-bloggers. She is your go-to-chef if you want quick, tasty culinary shortcuts. Here is our first favourite from her repertoire.
