Oven-Grilled Turmeric Chicken

I love the simplicity of this chicken dish. Aunty Jane used to bake us turmeric chicken marylands and I remember how I’d tuck in with relish; it will always be just one maryland per person so there’s no room for greed! As a plus, I think this dish is pretty healthy too and with […]

The name comes from the method in which they are cooked; pan-frying and steaming only one side of the dumplings as if they were stuck  to the pan. The result is a crisp-on-one-side-tender-on-the-other parcel enveloping […]
