Recipes using turmeric

An old Indian spice lauded for its health benefits, turmeric adds both colour and a peppery, warm, sometimes slightly bitter flavour to food. Use it in curries, with rice, as a paste for grilled meats and in warm winter soups.

Best winter breakfast recipes

If you need a little more convincing than usual to get out of bed when it's cold outside, try these warm, hearty breakfast ideas to get you going, from waffles to warm polenta and smoky beans with bacon.

What to cook this winter

From rib-sticking beef rendang to the perfect goat's cheese quiche, these are the recipes to tick off for winter (so far).

Chocolate hob-nobs

These extra-large oat biscuits are exactly what you need to get through the afternoon slump. Have one with a strong cup of tea and you'll be firing.

Six sweet biscuit recipes

From soft meringue alfajores to chocolate hob nobs and Swedish spiced ginger cookies, these treats will be swept up in a snap.

Roti canai

Here, we've made the dough in a food processor, but it's really quick and simple to do by hand as well. If the dough seems a little too wet just add a little more flour.

Winter tart recipes

Tarts are as versatile as they are delicious, and are perfect for baking on a cool winter's day.

Citrus recipes

From tarte au citron to canard a l’orange, citrus flavours have long been friends of French cuisine. Pucker up for a taste of the sun-kissed Mediterranean and further afield with these recipes featuring oranges, lemons, grapefruit and mandarins.

Dirty bird (chicken burger)


"Reuben Hills' spicy chicken brioche burger is so addictive I want to make it for myself - and friends. Would you ask the restaurant for their recipe?"
Finn Williams, Darlinghurst, NSW

Method

  • 01
  • For Mexican marinade, combine ingredients in a non-reactive container, add chicken, turn to coat, cover and marinate overnight.
  • 02
  • For dirty slaw, stir sugar, vinegar, salt and spices in a saucepan over medium-high heat until sugar dissolves. Bring to the boil, reduce heat and simmer to infuse (10 minutes). Strain and pour over vegetables in an airtight container and refrigerate overnight to pickle. Dirty slaw will keep refrigerated for 3 days.
  • 03
  • For tomatillo salsa, blend ingredients in a food processor to a purée. Refrigerate until required.
  • 04
  • For chipotle aïoli, process ingredients except oil in a food processor, then add oil in a thin steady stream until smooth and emulsified. Refrigerate until required. Aïoli will keep sealed and refrigerated for a week.
  • 05
  • Preheat oven to 180C. Heat a char-grill pan over high heat, wipe off excess marinade from chicken and grill, turning once, until just cooked (3-4 minutes). Place grated cheese on the base of brioche buns and cook in oven until cheese melts (5-7 minutes).
  • 06
  • Spread tomatillo salsa over cheese on bun bases and chipotle aïoli on top halves, add even amounts of pickled slaw on all bun halves, slice chicken, sandwich between bun halves and serve.

Note Begin this recipe a day ahead to marinate the chicken and pickle the slaw. Reuben Hills use Brasserie Bread brioche rolls. Dried Mexican oregano, chipotle chilli in adobe, green habanero hot sauce and chipotle hot sauce are available from select delicatessens and online from montereyfoods.com.au and fireworksfoods.com.au
