Latasha’s Kitchen {Perthfect Product Giveaway}

Latashas Kitchen I met Latasha at the Angove Street Festival last year, at the Latasha’s Kitchen stall, full of tasty Indian/Asian inspired goodies. Her products include chutneys, marinades, curry paste, dressings and more. I always love to meet producers – they have such a wonderful passion for the food they make. I was thrilled to try Latasha’s products and hoping that some of her excitement would rub off on me – I do enjoy cooking, but being so time poor, I often find it more of a chore. If someone does the thinking for me though – I’m happy to follow a simple recipe! IMG_9359Latasha was born and bred in Malaysia. Her parents’ families originally hailed from Southern India. As a result, her cooking reflects the distinctive food from South Asia and Southeast Asia. “Resisting the temptation to tailor her original family recipes to suit ‘western’ palates, Latasha began converting a growing number of customers to appreciate the flavour of meat slow cooked on the bone using masala ground from scratch, with fresh ingredients and strictly no preservatives, commercial stocks or MSG.” I’m a self-confessed food label-reader and when I find a product which has no nasties in it – I’m stoked! Here’s what I made… Latasha’s Chicken Kuruma Masala Using the Latasha’s Kitchen Kuruma Masala Paste, I made a simple and quick chicken curry. Though it was fairly mild, it still packed plenty of punch and delicious flavour. IMG_9363From start to finish it takes less than an hour to make. There’s very little prep involved. Just chopping the chilli, chicken and cherry tomatoes. Then it all gets popped in the pan for about 45 minutes with the Kuruma Masala Paste. This paste is made of all sorts of spices – it’s a nutty tasting paste with strong flavours of tomatoes, coconut and ginger also coming through. IMG_9297When ready, I serve the curry on a bed of basmati rice and garnish the dish with coriander, lemon, mint and vine ripened cherry tomatoes. It is a fantastic dish, full of fresh flavours, I love the addition of plump sultanas too. The KurumaMasala got Chef’s seal approval too and he asked when I’d be making it again – he loves a night off being in the kitchen!IMG_9317 {GIVEAWAY!!} Thanks to Latasha I have THREE Latasha’s Kitchen hampers to giveaway to some lucky foodies!
