Chicken and Pork Steamed Dumplings

If you like dim sum, you’ll love these chicken and pork dumplings from Sunshine on a Plate. Ready-made dumpling wrappers make this recipe easy and achievable.These are very much like dim sum; another Mauritian dish with Chinese origins. Usually they would be eaten before Min Frire or Pork Bol Renversé. These may sound complex but if you buy ready-made dumpling wrappers, it’s really a very simple dish, which I guarantee you will absolutely love.

This one-pot long and lazy chilli is a great weekend dish when you don’t want to spend hours over the stove, yet want a great result. Using red onions pickled in lime juice alongside home baked spicy nachos makes this a winning chilli!

Cari Mutton (Mauritian Mutton Curry)

​Mutton is a wonderfully rich meat that can handle lots of chilli and spice so this is the perfect for it. This is the dish that I cooked in the final of MasterChef and I still can’t believe that one of my family’s classic curries would be enough to secure me the title! It tastes even better the next day as all the spices harmonise and the flavours go deep into the meat.  Extract from my first cook book ‘Sunshine on a Plate’
