Gloomy November afternoon

November gloom outside but soothed inside by R3, Beethoven and the gentle rhythm of rolling out flatbread. A few gems gently simmering on the stove – gorgeous orange squash with garlic, red peppers, chick peas, fennel seed and a base mix of spices (roast Urud dhal, cumin, black cardamom, clove and a hint of chilli). Later I will flash roast aubergine in strips and lace with pomegranate jewels (can you hear Nigella?) and a little spritz (again?) of pomegranate molasses. And then maybe a crisp herb salad full of spinach, pine nuts or walnuts (can’t decide), parsley and mint.  What better for a November evening?
