Mine has to be cheesy potato and bean mess!
Boil the spuds then mash and mix in some grated cheese and seaon. Plop the mixture in an oven proof dish and top with more cheese. Go off and do something else until cheese is golden oh and warm a tin of baked beans at the same time - multi tasking LOL
Serve all together tummy cheap lazy warming food - I love it!!!

Bronnie - I contacted Patak's and got this reply:Good morning and thank you for your enquiry.Our advice on the label for consumers is “It is important that this product is not consumed uncooked” this is because Patak’s pastes are made with unprocessed spices. Spices naturally contain some bacteria which remain dormant and harmless in the dry spices.Some companies process their spices to reduce the number of these bacteria, but others, including ourselves do not, as the process used can affect the flavour of the spices. The recipes used here at Patak’s ensure that the curry pastes remain safe and retain a superior flavour through not being processed.When mixed with other foods uncooked the bacteria may have chance to multiply and it is therefore necessary to cook the combined food and paste as directed on the label to ensure the final dish remains free from live bacteria.Our advice to you would be:
Follow the instructions on the label and thoroughly cook the product.
If you do decide to continue using the raw paste mixed with cold foodstuffs (i.e. cooked chicken), ensure the food is completely cold and once you have combined the paste with the food, store in the refrigerator and eat within 4 hours.
I hope you fine this information useful.RegardsCustomer ServicesWho'd have thought?
