Potato & Cauliflower Curry {Foodie}

Inspired by Jamie Olivers Potato & Cauliflower Curry Recipe, I made my own version of it with what I had in my Kitchen. His Recipe Below but feel free to explore with your own ingredients keeping the base the same.

I did not add any dairy so my version is #vegan and I pared it with wraps instead.

You can add other veggies and spices etc.

Veggie curries can be found all over India. Feel free to add or substitute other vegetables, such as peas, broccoli and spinach

3 tbsp vegetable oil
2 onions, sliced
4 cloves of garlic, chopped
6cm piece of ginger, peeled and chipped
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp cumin seeds
3 tomatoes, grated
6 curry leaves
1 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground tumeric
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1 kg maris piper potatoes, or any other floury potatoes thickly diced
1-2 green chillies, deseeded and sliced
1 large cauliflower, cut into florets just larger than the potato
Greek-style yogurt, to serve
For the Parathas
300 g chapati flour, plus extra for dusting
2 tbsp butter, melted

Natural Lotion {Beauty}

Homemade Natural Lotion.

Chemical Free, made with only 3 ingredients.

Coconut Oil, She Butter and Essential Oil.

I used Equal parts Coconut Oil and Shea Butter with 2ml Essential Oil.

You will need to following.

Shea Butter
Coconut Oil
Essential Oil (Optional)
Spoon
Bowl
Glass Jar with Lid for storing
Boiling/Warm Water

Spoon out equal quantities or as desired into your glass jar, add Essential Oil (Optional).

Fill bowl with Boiling/Warm Water.Place Jar in the bowl with water, stir until melted and well mixed.

Run Warm water over the side of the jar to melt contents.

Then leave to cool and harden.

* TIP Do this in shorts and short sleeves to rub excess or spills on your skin.

I got my inspiration from Wellness Mama and Zoe Bee Beauty.

I wanted a Face Lotion with Shea Butter and Coconut Oil. I have Normal to combination skin.

Regular Store Lotions left my skin Moisturized but only for about 12 Hours. When I forget to moisturize my skin felt tight and dry with oil spots.

I now use Castor Oil as Make up remover,  Rose Water as Toner and My Shea & Coconut Butter as Moisturizing Lotion.

Recipe for Castor Oil as Make up Remover Below

Depending on your skin type, you will need to use a different ratio of castor oil to extra-virgin olive oil (or alternate oil). My recommendation is:

Normal Skin: 1:1 ratio of castor oil to extra-virgin olive oil (or alternate oil)
Oily Skin: 3:1 ratio of castor oil to extra-virgin olive oil (or alternate oil)
Dry Skin: 1:3 ratio of castor oil to extra-virgin olive oil (or alternate oil)
