Simply Food By Mandy and Tims Dairy Get Together to Promote “Curry Nights at Home”

It’s easy. The new ‘going out’ is cooking curry at home. “Simpler, healthier and tastier” say one pot guru @simplyfoodbymandy and award-winning Greek style yogurt producers, Tims Dairy.

To prove their point, and encourage more people to do the same, they are running a campaign through October and November with Mandy’s gorgeous curry recipes which use Tims Dairy’s Greek style bio-live yogurt as an ingredient. There will be a new and tasty recipe idea each week in readiness for Friday night becoming “Curry Night at Home”.

Suitable for all the family or for a supper with friends, Mandy’s recipes are cost effective, nutritious and very simple to cook. She also loves using Tims Dairy’s yogurt for anything from tenderizing marinades and making creamy sauces, dips, drinks and desserts; all with an Indian flavour and theme.

Alongside the campaign they are running a social media competition to replicate Mandy’s recipe for one pot Chicken Korma (featured below) with the chance to win a great prize including a selection of yogurts and spices, some chocolates and a bottle of Prosecco – everything you need for the perfect curry night in. Check for details and to enter.

To enjoy each week’s recipe follow @timsdairyyogurt and @simplyfoodbymandy on instagram for some amazing inspiration.
