With the fast-approaching school holidays nearly upon us, we are doing our ” Little Chef ” cooking classes at Good from Scratch. My wife Bee and our Head Gardener Adrianne ( both qualified Chefs and Mums) run these classes and they are a lot of fun!
We always visit a country around the globe and this time it’s one of our favourites ” India “.

This recipe is aimed at all levels of cooking and if you don’t like Prawns just substitute them for chicken.
