A poori is an Indian deep-fried bread. These banana poori are an excellent accompaniment to a chicken, lamb or vegetable curry, or can be sprinkled with sugar and eaten as a sweet snack. They are quite delicious but their preparation does involve deep-frying in very hot oil, so if you are cooking with children they will need assistance but the result is definitely worth it!

On a trip to Morocco, this simple dish was served as a starter with other small salads and dips. Orange-flower water is very popular in the colourful cuisine of the Middle East and appears in many dishes, savoury as well as sweet. The tiny quantity used here gives this dish an exotic flavour, but if you cannot find it, or do not wish to use it, leave it out! I prefer to use the pebbly-leafed wintermint here rather than spearmint.
