I have been working on a lot of recipes lately and have quite a backlog of ones that I want to put on this blog so I might have to start posting more than one at a time or just save them for times when I can’t think of anything to make, who knows?

This morning I got up and did my usual sunday morning bake, making soda bread, onion marmalade and a wonderful fruity baked oatmeal. All these are photographed and being got ready to be posted so watch this space for some great recipes that anyone would love on a sunday!

Now to the recipe which is an Indian inspired dish and one that is perfect as the weather gets warmer. If you make curry on a regular basis you will know that it is hot work and takes time so when the weather is warm can be hard to do. However this salad is a flavoursome dish that would be perfect on warm days or as an accompaniment to any spicy dish.

When eating curry it is always good to have a bit of yoghurt around as it can balance out any hot flavours and bring your mouth back to feeling normal. One of the major components of this dish is a spiced yoghurt which is gorgeous on its own but also the perfect compliment to the rest of the courgette and pomegranate. It is also a very quick and easy dish to through together when you don’t have a lot of time.
