Mmmmm......Spiced Turnip

We all went rock climbing yesterday (Me + Stokesy, The Dictator and her husband - The Combat Wombat). We went with Kierron from Adventurous Experiences, he's the guy in the 'Visit Isle of Man' advert. He does loads of cool trips...check it out

On our return wanted something warming. Man those rocks are cold! A quick rummage in the veggie box and hey presto Spiced Turnip.

Chop the turnip into chunks then boil until soft. In a big fryig pan.......fry 1 tbsp sunflower oil, 1 green chilli (finely chopped), 1 tsp mustard seeds.....add 1tsp turmeric, 1/2 tsp chilli powder, 1/2 tsp salt......then add the turnip. Mix mix mix. then finish with some finely sliced ginger and fresh coriander.

We had the turnip with lamb curry and rice (as above) but the lamb curry was all that tasty. I should have spent more time trying to get the flavour right but was too sleepy after all that fresh air
