Rose Harissa, parsnip and paneer puff pastry plait + you can Win £50 waitrose vouchers

15 Nov

A winter main dish, for me should be one that tickles all the senses; a bit of heat to stoke the internal flames, a little sweetness to lift the fog and some light and easy depth to satisfy the heart. What better way than to wrap it all in pastry? Home-made paneer tastes fabulous when heated through and even more so with the rose scented Harissa and sweet roasted parsnips that this pastry plait holds. Merry Christmas 2015!

 

Rose Harissa, parsnip and paneer puff pastry plait by Deena Kakaya

I have created and written this recipe for a2 Milk™, using a2 Milk to make the paneer. Regular cows’ milk contains A1 and A2 proteins and for some, the A1 protein causes side effects such as nausea, bloating and mucus build up. A2 carefully select dairy cows that naturally produce the A2 protein and not the A1 protein. If you have had trouble digesting regular milk, a2 Milk could be for you.

a2 Milk have kindly offered a £50 voucher for one the readers of my blog.  All you have to do is leave a comment on the blog letting me know  your favourite recipe, using milk as a key ingredient, and leave your email address (via the link) and a name will be picked out of the hat! Happy happy. Alternatively you can simply enter the prize draw here you have until 16th December to enter and win! Good luck!

    What a cracker of a recipe Deena! I’m thinking of making this as well as the other traditional festive delights 🙂

    This looks like a fabulous dinner party centrepiece, Deena. Homemade rose harissa and homemade paneer are real treats for anyone only used to the bought versions, and so easy too. Lovely combinations. 🙂

    This would make stunning individual dinners for vegetarians on Christmas Day. It looks really festive! Made as one big plait would also be a brilliant centrepiece.

    My favourite recipe using milk is Turkish acma bread. It’s sweet, and soft, and the milk makes it very mellow. http://cookwitch.blogspot.co.uk/2014/03/turkish-breakfast-rolls-acma.html

      Thanks Lisa, glad that you like the plait!

      Oh- the bread looks fab! Thanks for sharing x

      Hi Sarah! Thank you for your kind words. And macaroni cheese- oof! Love the stuff. I like mine with Panko breadcrumbs and harissa 😉 xx

    I like to make a very cheesy sauce to top my spinach and walnut lasagne

    • Deena Kakaya November 21, 2015 at 2:12 pm #

      Mmm, the lasagne sounds lovely! Thanks Maxine

    Im a big fan of milkshakes tbh. This time of year though the ultimate comfort food is rice pudding! With plenty of cinnamon and stewed apple.

    • Deena Kakaya November 24, 2015 at 7:31 am #

      Oh rice pudding with cinnamon and stewed Apple sounds wonderful! Thanks Michelle 🙂

    This looks lovely! I’ve just got a cheese making kit so we’ll be making cheese with milk. I love making cheese sauces with milk, for fish pies especially.

      Thanks for your message Olivia! I hope the paneer making is fun for you.

      Cheese sauce, fab…I’m now thinking about mac’n’cheese 🙂
