I never thought a grape recipe could excite me until I tried the Bangladeshi recipe!
“Check out this grape recipe I’m making for lunch.” I said earlier this morning to my wife Caroline. She looked at my recipe and replied that it sounded absolutely disgusting. Caroline is right about a lot of things, but this time she got it very wrong. We loved this simple recipe so much I decided to sit down and post it to my blog immediately.
This is a traditional Bangladeshi recipe that you are unlikely to see in most curry houses. That said, my friend Mo – the head chef at Indian Diner ‘Table Talk‘ assures me that these grapes go very well with a curry.
Just look at the ingredients… Sweet seedless grapes, sour lemon juice, spicy hot red chilli powder and savoury flaky Maldon salt. It’s rare to find a recipe with so many different taste sensations and so few ingredients.
I’m asking you nicely here… don’t just write the recipe off like Caroline almost did. Give it a try. It’s more like candy than a fruit salad.
- A bunch of seedless green grapes cut in halves
- The juice of 1/2 lemon
- A pinch of Maldon Salt
- A pinch of red chilli powder
- 3 tablespoons chopped coriander
- Place the grapes in a bowl.
- Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well.
