About Me

  • Hello! Thank you so much for visiting me in the Attic, it's lovely to see you. My name is Lucy and I'm a happily married Mum with three children. We live in a cosy terraced house on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales in England which we are slowly renovating and making home. I have a passion for crochet and colour and love to share my creative journey. I hope you enjoy your peek into my colourful little world x

This sounds truly scrumptious and I will most definitely follow your instructions. I love Indian food and am familiar with the stage that looks unpromising. It then regularly turns out to be the best thing you've eaten in ages.


Lovely! Garam Masala is readily available in the US, usually in the Ethnic Foods section. I've also found a Chicken Masala simmer sauce we like from Tiger Tiger. Toss it and raw, frozen chicken tenders in the crockpot on high, and 4 hours later serve over basmati rice. Yum!


I love to try new recipes, thank you so much for sharing!
It sounds very delicious! Love your owl spoon, sooo cute!
Have a wonderful evening! xxBarbina


I will be trying that, thank you, I will be adding the chillies of course, as we have no little ones here!


Ooooh, you make me salivating, Lucy! I just LOVE curry and I will certainly try this receipe very soon ;>)
One question, please : when you mention "chili" powder, do you mean the HOT one, like "Cayenne"? (I doubt it, as you serve it to the kids), or then "paprika" ??
THANKS a bunch, dear !

happy little cottage

I agree with Little B MMMMmmmmmMMMMMMMmm!!!


Yummy.. I make my own Garam Masala...it really does perk a curry up.. Madhur Jaffrey's book taught me! :)x


Looks wonderful-i could almost smell it!! Hope I can make it soon as we have some cooked chicken left.


Yum .. going to try this. TFS ;-)

I'd love the green and red match for a blankie;)))
Best wishes



Lovely blog, sorry my english is very bad. xxxx

Mmmmm, looking forward to trying that out. I love yoghurty curries and anything with coriander is a winner as far as I'm concerned. If my children eat it I'll be truly impressed.


Looks wonderful. We buy Bombay Curry here in the US and add to it a can of coconut milk . Sweet and creamy ..I make a curry paste then add tunafish in a can and make rice , stir in tuna into curry with chopped apples , raisins and onions ..done !!!


This is remarkably similar to a sweet and sour balti recipe I have in an indian cookbook. yum yum yum - haven't had it for ages. I might just have to alter my shopping list!


It is called cilantro here in the states. For some people it tastes like soap. I have to sub flat leaf parsley. Not the same but better then licking a bar of soap.
Garam Masala is also located in the regular spice section in our stores. (Virginia Beach, Virginia) I think there is a big interest in Indian food around here. We tend to be a little behind the curve. It looks yummy.
Your blog is beautiful


Hello Lucy: look delicious! I like spices and I think I have them almost all in my pantry!



DH and I love curry!! Last week I made curried chicken thighs with big chinks of celery, potatoes, carrots and onion. I browned the thighs first in olive oil and a little butter and then added the rest of my ingredients and slow cooked it for about 45 minutes. Serve with crusty bread. YUM!!


Thanks for this very doable-looking recipe! I need some inspiration, and I need it to be fairly easy:) Cilantro is used a lot where I live in Tex-Mex recipes. It seems to be one of those things you either love or you hate. In my house it is definitely love!


Thank you for sharing - always on the look out for family friendly meals xx


Oh, I love Garam Masala! In the US, you can get it in the international section of a supermarket, or order it online from a spice shop (I get mine from Penzey's). Yummy!


Oooooh!! I'll definitely be trying this tomorrow! Was just wondering what on earth we were going to eat. It looks scrumptious!

Anne (I should be sleeping)

It certainly looks divine :)
Here in Australia, we can readily buy all the ingredients you've used.
I'll be giving this one a go!


Thanks for another good recipe. I did the Hugh FW banana bread today, I didn't have a lemon, and I added some chopped apples, and some ginger and cinnamon, because I had it in the cupboard, but apart from that I stuck to the recipe and it was divine!


I will have to try your curry recipe! I have always wanted to make my own (there are very few curry oriented resturants in the U.S). Thank you for all your year in reviews and lovely posts! It's been awhile since I've sat down to enjoy it. Thanks again!

That sounds delicious, a good recipe to try this weekend I think. Please can you tell me where you got your gorgeous spoon?
