Margarita

The Margarita dates back to the 1930’s and it’s no wonder it’s still alive and kicking today. Tequila, Cointreau, lemon juice and salt combine to make this a really crisp and fresh cocktail. The Cointreau helps to balance the margarita without taking anything away from the tequila, the perfect partnership!

Rasoi Waterfront Opens Doors to Swansea’s Homeless for Free Christmas Curry

The staff at Rasoi Waterfront, have served up around 40 Christmas curries to young people in need from across the city.

The Rasoi team opened their doors and welcomed people supported by the Swansea Young Single Homeless Project (SYSHP), based in the city’s Walter Road and provided them with a delicious meal with all the trimmings. Chefs served up fine Indian food to the youngsters at the waterfront restaurant, and to the SYSHP staff who give them much-needed practical and emotional support throughout the year.

Jas Kullar, co-owner of Rasoi Indian Kitchen and Rasoi Waterfront, said: “The ‘Christmas Curry’ has become something of a fixture in the Rasoi calendar and we are very pleased to continue with it this year. Last year we took the curry to SYSHP’s offices but this year we thought it would be nice to welcome our guests into the restaurant so they can enjoy the full festive experience.”

SYSHP Representative Isobel Smith said: “Many of our young people will have never experienced dining out in a restaurant before; and so we are extremely grateful to Rasoi for inviting us to their restaurant and providing a meal for our young people and staff to enjoy together, ahead of Christmas.

“SYSHP relies upon donations and support to enable us to continue with the work we do, supporting more than 110 young people aged 16 to 25 at any one time, with accommodation, emotional support and practical help. Last year we supported nearly 300 young people to live independently and become positive members of their communities. We do all we can to enable vulnerable youngsters go on to live enjoyable, productive lives and we appreciate the help we receive from local businesses and supporters.”

Jas continues: “We hope the event will raise awareness of the excellent work that is being carried out by SYSHP and the plight of people entrenched in poverty within Swansea.”

Free Desserts for Save The Children

We are asking all diners to donate the price of their dessert at both of our restaurants this Friday 16th December to support Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day.

We will be supporting Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day here at Rasoi Waterfront in SA1 and at our sister restaurant Rasoi Indian Kitchen in Pontlliw by waiving the cost of dessert and asking our customers to give the equivalent cost to the cause instead.

Christmas Jumper Day is on Friday December 16th this year and people all over the UK will be donning their festive knitwear to help raise money and awareness for Save the Children. The money raised will go towards helping children all over the world by providing healthcare, food, education and protection.

Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day is a fantastic initiative, which we are proud to support. If doing something as simple as encouraging donations by offering a free dessert is all it takes to help raise money and awareness then we are more than happy to participate.

Every year we try and get involved in as many great causes as we can. This year we hope to see as many customers as possible embracing the Christmas jumper tradition but more importantly we hope to see them treat themselves to a dessert and, in turn, help this amazing cause.

We hope to see you on Friday!

Thanksgiving

turkey-82924_1280

Every autumn people across America and Canada come together and feast in the name of Thanksgiving.

With food taking centre stage during this celebration, we thought it would be fun to come up with an authentic Indian twist on the Thanksgiving turkey.

To make a Rasoi spiced turkey we recommend that you need:

Ingredients

  • 1 turkey (a good start)
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped garlic
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 3 tsp finely chopped ginger
  • 8 oz butter
  • 5 tsp garam masala
  • Ghee
  • Salt
  • Pepper

Method

Melt the butter; add the garlic, paprika, garam masala, ginger, salt and pepper

Carefully spread ghee between the skin of the turkey and the breast, do the same with the spice mixture

Roast the turkey for 1 hour at around 205C, then baste every 20 minutes for a further hour or until skin has nicely browned and turkey is cooked throughout at around 175C

You can also try adding spices like coriander, cumin and chili to the mixture if you want. The perfect side dish to this turkey could be spiced roast potatoes and/or spiced vegetables such as carrots, broccoli and cauliflower.

If you decide to try this recipe at home or anything similar then we’d love to see it! Tweet us your photos to @RasoiWales or @rasoiwaterfront or tag us on Facebook
