  • The Nosh Team - Just pop the stock cube/pot straight in or if you have bought the liquid stock in the bottles use that without water

  • Rebecca - Hi, When making these recipes it says add stock. Am I adding the stock cube with just water you recommend in the recipe or the stock cube made into liquid stock plus the water you recommend?

  • JeSs - So good & easy to cook! (preparing needs time, but it is worth it). Add more than 2 cloves garlic, more Korma paste for a more intense curry taste, instead of pine nuts you can also use hacked peanuts, almonds, or walnuts (any kind of nut will do). Basmati rice instead of normal rice is perfect for this dish. The fresh spinach is indispensible, also the raisins and the yogurt ;) A meal to enjoy and to feel good after having eaten it!
