Wishing All Our Customers Who Celebrate Christmas A Happy and Healthy Festive Season



Coming Soon - New Product - Baked Beans

Are you lamenting the loss of Heinz No Added salt Baked Beans?

We've located two brands of low sodium baked beans. We've given both the taste test - we had them for tea last night - and found them yummy. We have a baked bean devotee among our customers and he is doing a taste test for us too.  Once the results are in we'll order one brand and add them to the store.

We've also located some other canned beans that are low in sodium to add to the store as well. We're thinking of adding the mixed beans and the chick peas.  Any suggestions welcome.



Lamb Korma Recipe

Preparation Time 20 minutes

Cooking Time 2 hours 15 minutes

  1. 2 medium brown onions, chopped finely
  2. 2 cloves of garlic, chopped 1 tablespoon Sultanas
  3. 1 cup water
  4. 1 kilogram of diced trim lamb
  5. Ghee or Olive Oil
  6. 2 tablespoons of Herbies Korma Curry spice blend
  7. 6 tablespoons of ground almonds
  8. 2 cups of natural plain yoghurt
  9. ¼ teaspoon of saffron threads (can be omitted as add colour only)
  10. 1 tablespoon of fresh coriander leaves to garnish

  1. If you are using saffron, soak it in a tablespoon of warm water.
  2. In an oven proof pan (which has a lid), cook onions and garlic in the olive oil until onions are translucent.
  3. Stir in the spices, the ground almonds and the cup of water.
  4. Cook mixture for a minute or two and then add the meat.
  5. Stir until meat is coated in the spice, almond and onion mixture.
  6. Add yoghurt (and the saffron and the liquid it is in, if you are using it).
  7. Stir well and bring to a simmer.
  8. Once simmering, place in a 100 degree C oven and cook covered for 1-2 hours until meat is tender.
  9. Return dish to stove top and simmer uncovered to reduce the liquid to your taste.  I like my curry sauce to be thicker.
  10. Sprinkle coriander leaves over curry just before serving.

Serving Suggestion:
  1. A mild aromatic curry that all the family will enjoy
  2. Serve with rice and Garnisha  Mango Chutney or Lime Pickle
  3. Halve quantities of all ingredients to make a meal just for 2 people
