When it comes to recipes that should be naturally gluten free, you can’t get much better than a curry. We’ve got reams of curry recipe books on our shelves, and go through phases of eating little else. Which doesn’t really explain why I’ve got so few curry recipes listed here. Weird. Maybe all the spice makes me forgetful. 🙂 I promise I’ll aim to get more gluten free curries up here for your delectation.
Bhaji Man products are also Gluten Free and suitable for Coeliacs. They have no added artificial colours, flavours, artificial preservatives or salt and can be suitable for people on restricted diets.
