it should be stressed that the sausaaaarge must be of the very strong salami/choritzo variety. also the incrediably hard cheese must be so tasty you find yourself chewing the rind in desperation when it runs out...

2 level teaspoons ground cumin
2 level teaspoons cinnamon
2 level teaspoons ginger
Pinch saffron (I usually leave this out)

Throw in the cubed beef and brown with a couple of teaspoons of flour.

Chuck in the carrots and squash and fry for 10 minutes

Add honey, raisins and stock.

Season and place in oven at 150oC for up to 2 hours

Seeing as Dave's not around, I think I'll look after this thread now, will edit in links to the first post to the posts that have the recipe in them rather than pasting in all the recipes themselves.

Palestinian falafel
If you want to make extremely tasty falafel then the following recipie, although slightly more work, is well worth the result

125g dried chickpeas
small-medium sized bunch of fresh corriander
1 large onion
several cloves of garlic
salt
pepper
cumin and / or other spices
oil for fying

Soak the chickpeas for about 8 hours. Drain. Place all ingrediants into powerful food processor  and mash until reduced to a pulp. Knead the mixture and then taking small quantities at a time, shape into walnut sized flattened balls, or use a falafel shaping tool. Drop the shaped falafel balls into hot oil and deep fry until golden brown, turning over periodically while frying to ensure even cooking. When cooked place on rack or cooking paper to drain oil. Serve as a snack with Palestinians salads and sauses, or serve in freshly baked pita bread with salad, homous, chips and tahineh. Eat while hot. (Thow out any falafel that go cold).

Scotch Eggs
For a full meal eat with veg

My quantities are based on random guesses, I know how much to use, but don't weigh anything when cooking these!  My cooking times are quite approximate as well, things are done when they are done!

Boil however many eggs you want to scotch, for about 6 mins (or longer, as long as they are hard!), take off heat, smash the shells and leave to cool in some cold water.

Meanwhile, take as much sausage meat as needs be for the eggs, about 1/2 pound does 3 or 4, it's pretty obvious when you handle it; add herbs and seasoning as you see fit, herbs de provence are nice.

Next get some bread, about 1/2 slices per egg and shove it in a blender (or use a hand blender), until it becomes breadcrumb (if you are hardcore allow 4 extra hours and make your own bread), -at this stage you can bake the crumbs for a short while to harden them, I don't bother.  Put the crumbs in a bowl and put to one side; in another bowl beat some eggs, allow 1 beaten egg for each 2 scotch eggs.

Back to the hard boiled eggs, shell them, make sure they are dry and coat in flour, now take enough sausage meat to cover the egg, pat it out in to a circle and shape round the egg, making sure it is sealed.  Next double crumb the meat encased egg (coat in egg, then crumbs, then egg then crumbs again).

To cook them, either oven at about 200 degrees C for 30/40mins (depending on how crap your oven is), or shallow fry for 10-15mins on a medium heat, turning reguraly.  Either way they will probably split, don't worry they still taste about 100x better than anything you can buy form the supermarket.

If you are feeling flush use clarence court eggs as the central egg as they are particuarly rich (use any eggs for the beaten egg); I get my sausage meat from the farmers market.

Fruit loaf / cake thing

350-400g raisins & sultanas
255g self raising flour
20-50g sugar (the recipe said 150g but it was good with less)

Uber chocolate cheesecake:

225g Chocolate digestive or some kind of chocolately biscuit, i used choc hob nobs last time
85g   Butter

Crush up biscuits, get a cake tin and smudge butter all over it, for best results line the bottom with foil or similar. Melt butter in pan over low heat and add crushed biscuits. Mix until well combined and add to cake tin. Flatten out as well as possible and place in fridge.
   
700g  Cream cheese (FULL FAT, no half measures please. Phillie works well)
175g  Caster sugar
3 tbsp  Plain flour
2 tsp Vanilla essence
3 Eggs
115g Plain chocolate, broken
115g White chocolate, broken
 

Preheat the oven to 160C. Beat the cream cheese in a bowl until fluffy, add sugar, flour and vanilla essence, beat until smooth. Gradually beat in the eggs. Separate half the mixture into another bowl. Melt the plain and white chocolate in separate bowls over a pan of simmering water, leave to cool. Stir the plain chocolates into one of the cream cheese mixtures and the white chocolate into the other. Pour the 2 mixtures alternately over the biscuit base, then using a knife swirl the mixtures to create a marbled effect. Bake for 50-60 minutes. Leave in the oven with the door ajar until cold, then refrigerate for 2 hours before removing the tin.

Decorate as you see fit, last time it was plain choco ganache for me. But sprinkle of coco and strawberries also works well.

Chilli Brownies

2 large fresh red chilli, de-seeded
2 large fresh green chilli, de-seeded
100g   caster sugar
150ml  water

Finely slice chillies on diagonal. Depending on how hot you want them you can adjust the quantities of chilli and whether or not you want to keep the seeds. For reference i left the seeds in. Place sugar, water and chillies in a pan and bring to the boil. Simmer for 5 minutes. Drain and leave to the side.

200g   butter
300g   plain chocolate, chopped
3 medium eggs
150g caster sugar
tsp vanilla extract
200g plain flour, sifted
pinch of salt

preheat the oven to 180C. Lightly butter a a square medium sizish straight-sided baking tin. Melt butter and half the chocolate in a bowl over simmering water. When melted and well combined set aside to cool slightly.In a separate bowl, beat the eggs, sugar and vanilla together until pale. Beat in the melted white chocolate mixture. Fold in the sifted flour and salt, then the remaining chocolate. Add the chillies to the batter. Pour into the baking pan and bake for 25 minutes or until the top is firm and lightly golden. Remove and cool in the pan.
