Cuilidh you are so right. My DS and family are Hare Krishna's  and they have a very interesting diet. My wonderful  D-I- L  can make just about anything work and bakes the most desirable cakes and muffins without eggs.  I think being a vegetarian requires a lot more imagination  when meal planning.  Endless possibilities where as I sometimes give up and feed the man what he actually wants which is bangers and mash. ;D

Vegetarianism isn't that hard, just don't use meat or fish, but everything else!  I know the Hare Krishna's use aesofitida (that may be not the correct spelling) instead of onions and garlic.  I didn't realise that they didn't eat eggs either.

Yes they use a lot of  asafoetida . There are various spellings but it is commonly  known as Devils Dung and it is one of the worst  smells I have ever encountered. I used to keep it double bagged in it's jar and in the garage and I swear I could still smell it. They are not so strict  that they do not eat onions and garlic which is also a no no apparently .

Yes, it does have a unique aroma, doesn't it.  It doesn't 'agree' with me so I never use it.

Katie,  the little pot is the one it came in,  that I bought in London.

I just "Googled" it Chookie and they seem to came in allsorts of delightful little pots like yours.  Quintessentially English!

I asked my DH (who is English but has been here since here was about 6 years old) and he's had it before.  I'm definitely making it for him and my FIL.  Thanks Chookie for another great recipe  :D

I am making  it now and it smells wonderful.  Had only  150 mls of cider  vinegar  so topped it up with malt. Used about 6 anchovies and more than a dash of chilli.

Does this look  right chookie?



Didn't have any mustard  powder but had some seeds  I ground.
