Made this for my significant other, who is Ethiopian, and he said it was better than the Ethiopian restaurant he frequents. Used red onion (half cup instead of whole onion) instead of yellow but not sure that made any difference. Added jalapenos at the very end-22 Jan 2019

I've made this a few times for Ethiopian friends, and they loves it. I like it with a lot of ginger but was told that's not authentic.-12 Jun 2017

Yum! Happened to have all the ingredients one night so I threw this together. Omitted the optional ginger and added a bit of garlic salt and a squeeze of lemon - tasting as I went. Also used peanut oil by accident (picked the wrong bottle out of the pantry - oops!), will use again. Overall a simple side I'll make whenever I find myself with all the ingredients.-07 May 2017

We all love some classic Indian street food, don’t we? One of the most loved street food items is the tikki. The spicy goodness goes well with our favourite hari chutney , and is a gastronomical treat we all crave from time to time. However, the amount of oil that goes into the preparation of a tikki is scary, and keeps many fitness-conscious people away from enjoying it guilt-free!

To overcome this dilemma between health and hunger cravings, we have a recipe for you that strikes the perfect balance! This baked beetroot tikki recipe is low on oil but high on taste. What’s more, the star ingredient — beetroot — has multiple health benefits for you.

The vegetable contains a high content of antioxidants known as alpha-lipoic acid, which help neutralize the action of free radicals and delay cell ageing. In spite of being low on calories, beetroots have a considerable amount of vitamins — A, C, B6 and folate, which are needed by your body to stay healthy. So, it’s one of the best ingredients to pick out to make tikki !

Best roast potatoes – Recipe

This is how to make perfect crispy roast potatoes . You can swap the lard for duck or goose fat for equally delicious results.

10 large King Edward potatoes, peeled, cut into large chunks
50g/1¾oz lard, dripping or vegetable oil
2 pinches sea salt
Recipe tips

Preheat the oven to 200C/180C Fan/Gas 6.

BBQ Hacks

Below you can find a list of some of our favourite hacks to help you elevate your BBQ experience in some exciting, practical ways.

  • Let your BBQ heat up properly (it will take at least 20mins). If the coals are still burning rather than glowing, your food will burn too
  • Add a handful of herbs (like lemon grass, rosemary or lavender) to burning coals to give food an extra kick as it cooks
  • Use a sprig of rosemary as skewers, not only will it look great , but it also infuses the meat with lots of flavour!
  • Make sure you have two sets of cooking utensils and containers when cooking on the BBQ to avoid cross-contamination between raw and cooked food
  • If you're looking for an alternative to using wire brush to clean your BBQ grill, use half an onion!
    Allow the grill to heat up, pierce the half onion with a fork and rub the cut-side down along the grill grates
  • Take meat out of the fridge 15 minutes before cooking and it will cook more evenly, the outside is less likely to burn before the middle is cooked to your culinary perfection
  • Use fresh herb sprigs and tie them to the end of a wooden spoon and use as an aromatic brush. Rosemary branches work best but thyme, oregano and sage work best too!
  • Avoid continually flipping the meat on your BBQ or pressing down with a spatula as juices and flavours escape, losing its juiciness
  • Have a small spray bottle filled with water by the BBQ, so you can damp down the coals if any flames appear
  • After cooking on your BBQ extinguish the burning coals with water and leave for a few hours until they are completely cold

Preparation -- 20 minutes

PRE-HEAT the oven to 220 degrees Celsius or 430 degrees Fahrenheit. REMOVE the bottom of the garlic head with a chef's knife and then wrap the whole garlic head with tin foil.

ROAST the garlic in the oven for at least 20 minutes, check if they're soft enough and let them cool off until you can handle the garlic with your hands. Meanwhile, PEEL the potatoes and rinse with cold water.

Slice the potatoes into pieces. By doing this you will lower overall cooking time because the potatoes will cook faster. Put a large pan on high heat, add the potato slices along with cold water. T

he potatoes have to be covered by water for at least 1 inch. Add half a teaspoon of salt to the water. Be sure to have the heat all the way up.

Mashed potatoes with roasted garlic

Finishing up the mashed potatoes with roasted garlic -- 15 minutes

When the water starts boiling reduce heat to medium-low. Let it simmer for about 10 to 15 minutes until you can easily poke through the potatoes with a fork. DRAIN the potatoes and press them through a fine sieve using the ladle.

The easiest way is to get a spoonful of drained potatoes at a time. This way your mashed potatoes will be very smooth without any lumps. ADD butter, cream and milk to the mashed potatoes and squeeze in the soft roasted garlic.

You can add as much butter, cream and milk as you like. The more you'll add the smoother and creamier the mash will be. Season with pepper and salt.
