Nigella Lawson Deep Fried Candy Bars

Ingredients
2 quarts sunflower oil, for deep frying
1 cup self-rising flour
1 cup soda water
8 fun-size chocolate coconut bars (recommended: Mounds)

Directions
Heat sunflower oil in a deep-fat fryer or a Dutch oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large bowl, add 1 cup of flour. Gently whisk in 3/4 cup of soda water, if the batter is too thick, add the 1/4 cup. It should be able to coat the candy bar easily. Submerge each chocolate coconut bar in the batter and place it right into the hot oil either with your fingers or tongs, allowing it to fry for about 3 minutes or until the batter is puffed up and golden brown. Using a tongs remove the battered chocolate coconut bars and place them on a paper towel lined plate. Transfer them to a plate, enjoy immediately.

Tips:

Use leftover batter to make funnel cakes.

Review:

We used this recipe to deep fry a whole lot of items. Did not make the pineapple stuff. The batter for this is amazing, though!! We deep fried some oreos, mini candy bars, york peppermint patties, and mini toblerones. The oreos were AWESOME!! You have got to try this!! We heated Canola oil in a wok pan on the stove and it worked great. Use the extra batter to make yourself a funnel cake! So good!

Ingredients
For the muffins:
1 1/2 cups self-rising flour
1/3 cup rye flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon English mustard powder
Generous 1/2 cup grated sharp Cheddar

Special equipment: 12-cup muffin pan lined with 12 paper baking cups

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Mix the flours, baking powder, baking soda, salt, mustard powder and cheese in a large bowl with a fork. In a large measuring cup, beat together the remaining ingredients. Pour into dry ingredients, mixing lightly with your fork, remember that good muffins are made from lumpy batter.

Matar Paneer

Nigella Lawson Recipe

Yummy and Easy

INGREDIENTS

SERVINGS 8 UNITS US
1⁄2 cup vegetable oil
8 ounces panir, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1 onion, halved
2 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
1 inch piece ginger, roughly chopped
1 dash salt
1 teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon garam masala
2 (10 ounce) packets frozen peas
1 teaspoon tomato puree
1 cup vegetable stock

DIRECTIONS

Heat the oil a large skillet and add the paneer cubes, in 2 batches, and fry until they are golden.
Remove the golden cubes to a double thickness of kitchen towel. (It is possible to dry fry the paneer cubes in the pan with no oil, to avoid the oil splashing you. Then continue with the recipe below.)
Pour all but about 2 tablespoons of the oil out of the pan.
Put the onion, garlic cloves, and ginger into a food processor and blitz to a coarse pulp.
Fry gently for about 5 minutes with a sprinkling of salt.
Stir in the garam masala and turmeric and cook for another 2 minutes before adding the still frozen peas.
Dissolve the tomato puree in the vegetable stock and pour over the contents of the pan.
Stir again and turn the heat down to low, cover with foil or a lid and cook for 15 minutes, tasting to check that the peas are tender.
You can cook muttar paneer up to this stage, if you like, uncovering and then reheating gently with the diced, oil-crisped cheese, or proceed directly now.
In which case, take off the foil and add the paneer cubes to warm them through before serving.

Serve with rice and naan.

Naan

Buy naan from the grocer.

Brush with butter. Add garlic and salt if you want.

Place in 400 F oven for 5 min or till brown.

Enjoy! Serve with chopped cilantro or parsley or mint.
