Thrifty: Spicy chicken stir-fry.
Clever cooking means using your ingredients wisely. This week steamed rice with a spicy chicken stir-fry one night becomes a classic fried rice the next. Make a double batch of Spanish green sauce – paired here with a grilled pork cutlet – and keep it in the fridge to use with chicken or fish another time.
Thrifty weekly cooking deserves a weekend splurge – maybe a Saturday night Indian feast of chicken masala with homemade yoghurt flat bread, or use Sunday to focus on Italian comfort food – stuffed zucchini flowers followed by steak with basil-infused polenta.
