With eco-related stories dominating the cultural conscious, responsible farming and nearlyevery meat product and ingredient manufacturer are falling over themselves to assure the consumer that they are locally farmed or have a low carbon foot print. It comes as no surprised that chefs are aiming to follow this trend.
Chef, Sanjay Majhu has created a dish, dubbed the Mac-sala, which can be cooked using only ingredients which can be bought and grown within Scotland. Sanjay is the chief executive of the Harlequin Restaurant group that runs the Ashoka restaurant chain
Speaking about the Mac-sala, Mr Majhu said “Indian dishes rely heavily on exotic ingredients that can normally only be sourced from afar and shipped or flown into the country.
“Scotlandhas such an amazing natural larder so I was inspired to create a curry using only home-grown herbs and spices and the results have astounded me.
“As quite the curry connoisseur I’m very hard to please, but let me tell you it’s absolutely delicious and packs every bit of a punch.”
