You’re supposed to put sage in with butter and pop it over fresh pasta

yeah and Rick Stein spent the whole of that India series going on about not using too much of it cos of how strong it is. I guess the stuff we end up getting in the UK is just yellow food colouring but otherwise it tastes really curry-y

I’ve got some proper turmeric and you only need about a quarter of a teaspoon, it’s well pungent

Coriander seeds. What do they do? I just grind them in with the other stuff like I’m told but I’m unclear on what they’re contributing.

Aye but what’s it adding? Don’t say yellow.
