Work allowed a simple 'dressing' and was followed by an equally simple dinner of Rajma [Kidney Beans Curry], Chawal and Chutney!
Kidney Beans Curry/Rajma Curry, Coriander-Mint Chutney, Rice.
The Choclate Butter Cake recipe comes from the prolific Joy of Baking; this recipe worked. Have added instant coffee powder to both the cake batter and the frosting/glaze: Indian Necafe brand plus grated orange zest. Personal preference would be for an addition of fruit puree/raspberries to cut down a slight lingering eggy aroma. Others did not have such any issues! Also found that a touch of mint, by way of fresh spearmint leaves worked.
