Spent a wonderful day photographing this set of four Indian dishes from Bristol’s enterprising new food company, Coconut Chilli.
Navina Bartlett aims to give the world of ready-meals a well needed kick in the pants with this little menu. She is already supplying office workers in Bristol with individual potfuls of these recipes, and she has her sights firmly set on the chiller cabinets and shopping baskets of our local food shops in 2014.
Lamb and black pepper keema meatballs in spicy coconut gravy.
Root vegetable, mooli and dhal sambhar with a piquant hint of chilli.
Shrimp and coconut milk korma with crunchy cashews.
Cardamom scented chicken and succulent, seasonal squash.
Navina’s Indian cookery is inspired by the ingredients of the Coorg region, in the coffee hills above Bangalore. All four of these dishes are gluten and dairy free. The sambhar is also vegan.
The new Coconut Chilli website is still simmering gently, ready to be served in a few weeks. But you can get in touch with Navina and find details of how to order from her @CoconutChilli twitter page.
