Thai Green Curry Paste

Thai pastes are one of the essential elements of Thai Cuisine, prepare Thai soup or Thai Curry, Thai stir fry or marinades dishes, Thai pastes plays an important role in these dishes.

The good news is that making your own Thai Green Curry Paste at home is not a tedious job, as long as you have all the ingredients ready. This Thai curry paste can be ready in less than 10 minutes. Get the ingredients, put in a food processor and whizz up till you get a smooth paste. That's it. And let me tell you it is so much better than shop-bought Thai Curry paste, packed with amazing fresh fragrant flavours and ingredients. But, if you have some time on your hand and patience or just need some work out try pounding this paste by hand in mortar and pestle, therapeutic right?

We love Thai food, so obviously I do make my own Thai pastes. Luckily, all the authentic and necessary ingredients are available very easily where I live as there is an oriental grocery store just a stone's throw away from my house. I love to include fresh and original ingredients in my Thai curry pastes. The recipe I have prepared is fast, finger-licking and versatile, you can add in pretty much anything.

10/12 days ago, I was clearing out my fridge and realised that we are out of homemade Thai paste! It's almost time for my daughter to go back to uni, so it's the right time for me to prepare this paste, so I can freeze some for her too and whenever she wants to use it she can use it. This paste can be frozen and stays up to one year.

Recently I prepared coconut and pineapple Thai fried rice, which is now have become our all time favourite and it seems to be doing pretty well with my readers too. I am soon going to post a similarly delicious recipe just like this one prepared with Thai paste, but until then let's see how the Thai Green paste can be made.

Since I came to know what traditional modak looks like and how to make them, I had making them on my bucket list. One day I'll go about it! While I was watching a video on youtube how to make traditional modak, a thought came to my mind to make Cashew Caramel Modak.

They were a huge hit, I made about 15 modak and they were gone within a couple of hours, I saw hands hovering over the plate as soon as I finished clicking the photos. All I saw were arms reaching out from all directions, snagging modak after modak. Needless to say, we didn't waste any time. I suppose we were hungry for these Cashew Caramel Modak.

Saffron and Cardamom Horchata

A creamy and smooth rice-based Mexican drink laced with saffron and cardamom. A refreshing cooler for all year round.

A creamy and smooth rice-based Mexican drink laced with saffron and cardamom. A refreshing cooler for all year round.

Call me naive, but I didn't actually know there were different types of Horchata. The horchata that I was familiar with was Mexican horchata using rice milk.

A creamy and smooth rice-based Mexican drink laced with saffron and cardamom. A refreshing cooler for all year round.

Whilst I was in Barcelona, I ordered horchata at the station and a little google search later at home informed me that Spanish horchata is known as Horchata de Chufa which is made with tiger nuts!

I don't have an issue with dairy but have always loved drinking nondairy milk. I used to buy rice milk when I was younger and my mum suggested that we should have a go at making Horchata. Years passed and we never got round to it!

So after having tried it myself, I wanted to have a go at making horchata at home, and soon! I didn't have time to buy tiger nuts, but we had rice at home so I made Mexican horchata instead. When there is a kitchen cupboard groaning under the weight of different spices, it made sense to add a different flavour to the horchata. I settled on saffron and cardamom horchata. My mum was particularly pleased. She is obsessed with anything saffron and cardamom flavoured, as is evident with all of the sweets she has made in the past!

It was a time-consuming process but the end result was worth the effort! It really spruces up plain rice milk. It was perfectly sweet and creamy and will always bring back the memory of Barcelona!

Notes:-
For a vegan option omit condensed milk and use raw sugar.
For a classic Mexican horchata use a small cinnamon stick and omit the saffron and cardamom.

Barcelona - my unforgettable 3-day vacay!

Arc de Triomf-Barcelona, beautiful architecture,a popular tourist destination.

I'm already into August having found myself with no summer plans. After a gruelling year at uni and the last long summer holiday of my life, there was only one thing for it - booking a girls trip away! I am a medical student in my clinical years meaning I now will not get the luxury of many weeks off but just a fortnight. With some hasty last minute decisions, I and my friends landed on Barcelona and got to work planning our 3 days there.


I hadn't really considered Spain as a holiday destination much before even though it is an absolute tourist hotspot. I heard from a lot of friends that they had booked flights to Barcelona and now that I have been there, it is easy to understand why. Barcelona is the perfect cocktail of rustic old charm and young cosmopolitan vibes. With lashings of Sangria thrown in.

Day 1:

We flew in from London Luton to Barcelona - El prat on a 7 am flight. Neither of us was getting much beauty rest.

Upon landing at BCN airport, we bought 3-day (72hr) travel passes called Hola BCN. They could be used on unlimited on the metro, bus and other Barcelona public transport. The pass could also be used to get from the airport to the city via the metro. We took the L9 then changed over to the L5 to get to our accommodation 5 minutes from the Sagrada Familia.

Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau,Barcelona 15th century building in Barcelona now a museum.

After dumping our luggage (always overpacked as girls) in our room, we were free to begin exploring the city! We were mere seconds away from the Hospital de Sant Pau i de la Santa Creu, a 15th-century building that used to serve as a hospital and now as a museum and cultural centre.

There was no chance I was going to Spain without sampling the menu, so it was time to get some Patatas Bravas! Just from being outside for an hour or so was enough to experience the laid back attitude in Barcelona. I was enticed by the tables and tables of people enjoying tapas with a drink filling the streets. It's the kind of scene that is so hard to find back home in London.

Sagrada Familia in Barcelona. famous monument.

Now our next stop I was very excited about. We were going to visit the world famous Sagrada Familia. We bought tickets to the Sagrada Familia online in advance to save us from the long queues - I didn't want to take the risk of waiting around. If I thought the outside was spectacular, then I was in for a real treat once we made our way inside!


Colours danced through the stained glass windows and added to the allure of the interior. If I had my way, I could have sat here for hours, gazing at the intricate detail of the architecture. I was surprised to know that construction to the Sagrada Familia has been going on for over 100 years and is set to end in 2026. (An excuse to go visit again?) Even though it was packed with people, it still had a calming quality.

Even though we were pretty jet lagged, we pushed on and made our way into the town centre by bus. I think the bus was one of the best ways to get around, we got where we wanted to be quicker than by foot but could still see all of the sights!

Placa Catalunya famous square in Barcelona.

We spent the rest of the evening walking along Las Ramblas, a vibrant promenade in the centre of Barcelona. I just couldn't get enough of the beautiful buildings, I took picture after picture ... it's times like this where having loads of memory cards to hand helps! The evening sun shone through the trees and cast gorgeous lights and shadows over each unique building. I fell in love with the balconies and couldn't help myself but stop and look - sorry to anyone behind me who had to put up with me stopping every couple of meters!

We ventured into La Boqueria market which was an experience all in itself! It couldn't be more packed but it made the market all the better. We were overwhelmed with stalls selling fresh fruit, juices, meats. Wherever you looked was FOOD. So naturally, I had to buy something. I got myself an avocado and coconut juice to cool down and recharge from all of the walking. I also managed to get some pictures. Obviously.

We walked around the town and squares late into the evening and finally found a spot to grab some dinner.

Day 2: 

The whole of the morning was taken up by a free walking tour which was a fantastic way to see the city! We explored the Gothic Quarter and I had the opportunity to learn more about the city I was in and its language.

I ate my first paella in Placa Reial - a picturesque square lined with eateries just off Las Ramblas.

We decided then to take the metro to Placa d'Espanya which was within easy reach from Las Ramblas. I didn't know what to expect from this place but I was not at all disappointed. Far away from the centre, Espanya had a completely different feel. Just by walking up from the steps off the metro, we could see the Venetian Towers and the Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya (MNAC).

Montjuic cable car

We stopped to get drinks at the station. One glance at the menu and I knew what I was going to get. Horchata! One stop on the metro took us to the funicular for Montjuic where we could get on the Montjuic cable car to get panoramic views of Barcelona and the port. We took the cable car up one way and took a short leisurely walk back down again. Seeing Barcelona from a height really helped give perspective on what we were seeing down on the ground. The Sagrada Familia stood out firmly.

I had a really nice vegan dinner and then we had the evening free to head towards Barceloneta for the famous Barcelona nightlife! This was a girls trip after all and a chance to make use of my over flowing wardrobe back home!

Day 3: 

Park Guell Gaudi popular park in Barcelona.

Day 3 began with a bus journey to Park Guell, a public park designed by Gaudi. It was simply beautiful. The clear blue sky contrasted seamlessly with the bright colours in the park. It was a hot day and we were tiring from our trip but that didn't stop us marvelling at the artistry at hand.

As we took the bus back to the centre, we passed Passeig de Gracia - Barcelona's high-end shopping street. My mouth watered looking at the pristine succession of shops that I wished I had more time to visit. One day I will return with an intention to spend, spend, spend.

Las Ramblas square dining in Barcelona.

One of my friends suggested that we visit El Born for lunch. We left the hustle and bustle of tourist traffic behind and entered a calm oasis. Narrow winding streets, rows of tapas bars and men playing Spanish music in the squares all added to the charm of El Born. My eyes were constantly wandering into the shop windows as I looked for props to bring back as gifts - I am a blogger's daughter after all!

Arc de Triomf-Barcelona, beautiful architecture,a popular tourist destination.

With plenty of time until our late evening flight, we walked to the Arc de Triomf (where a jumping photo is a given) then relaxed in the park next to it. We couldn't have asked for better weather as our trip began to draw to a close.

Arc de Triomf

Next, we meandered our way to Barceloneta beach, ice creams in hand. Normally, when I see pictures of crowded beaches, it really puts me off! But walking along the promenade and simply soaking in the atmosphere was enough! Spending some time at the beach rounded this vacay off in style.

Barceloneta Beach popular and gorgeous view.

Sadly, it was time to make our way back to the Airport to head home. But our love of the city lives on in the memories that we made... and the hundreds of pictures that we took!

Adéu Barcelona!

As I was adding the final pieces to this post, I heard the devastating news of the attacks in Barcelona on the 17th of August. I am shocked and saddened to hear that this has happened to such a beautiful city that is so full of life and energy. Barcelona is in our thoughts.

A few days ago, I and my family went to the Mayfield Lavender Farm near London. Lavender fields seem to have taken over Instagram recently, with all visitors hoping to get the chance of that perfect selfie!

Going to a lavender farm immerses all of the senses of all things Lavender. The aroma hangs in the air and the beautiful purple hue stretches out all around you!

Now, you can't go all the way to a Lavender farm without sampling the delicacies on offer at the cafe. In the steady sunshine, the Lavender frappuccino stood out.

Even as a uni student, I've managed to avoid needing the caffeine kick before lectures and exams - yet! Coffee for me is synonymous with catching up with friends. A quick text to see who is free to spend the next few hours chatting away. We love to find quirky coffee shops, trying different places each time.

However, when these coffees are so easy to recreate at home, you don't always need to go out. And a good old gossip can be done anywhere! 

My mum bought lavender syrup to take home. I asked her if she had made any plans to use it yet, and when she hadn't, I set about making the frappuccino.

The end result was splendid - smooth, silky ice cold coffee fragrant with lavender. (Can anyone give me any tips on how to steal the lavender syrup from the fridge without my mum seeing?)
