I got the inspiration for this recipe from a South Indian Cookery class I recently visited at Food at 52.

I made my recipe in the The Optimum 9400 blender which was sent to me by Froothie to try out, you can see the original review here. 
The Optimum 9400 is a really powerful and versatile blender, not only does it blend liquids, it can pulse, grate and grind ingredients. It crushes ice in seconds and you can create the most amazing icecreams in minutes. But that is not all, you can also create hot soups and sauces in the same blender too.I love using the blender for creating smoothies, soups, icecreams and nut butters too. It can even make scrambled eggs!!!

The Optimum 9400 is available to buy at £349.00, It comes with a 1 MONTH TRIAL - MONEY BACK GUARANTEE (includes return postage costs for UK customers) For citrusspiceuk readers you can get a extra two years warranty  if you order through this post.
