You may recall the article about the Meek Family GOING WITHOUT ELECTRICITY where they experimented living with no lighting. Now they are back and they try to cook without electricity. Let’s see how they get on.

Modern kitchens are full of electrical gadgets that we come to rely upon on a daily basis; microwaves, cookers and even toasters are everyday devices that heat up our breakfast, lunch and dinner. Without electricity, none of these will work… and that’s where the adventure begins! This project GOING WITHOUT ELECTRICITY – COOKING was extracted from 100 Family Adventures by the Meek family, published by Frances Lincoln (£14.99).

This recipe for grown ups for Mauritius Prawn Curry has been extracted from Aara’s Baby Food Recipe Book by founder Alia Arain.

Alia has sent us a letter explaining where she has found this special recipe:

I discovered this recipe whilst on our first family holiday in Mauritius. On one of our jaunts around the island, we came across a little restaurant, tucked away in the corner of the East Coast. The only reason we saw it was because of the queue that was snaking around out of the door and around the corner! With our tummy’s rumbling we joined the back of the queue with eager anticipation, and we certainly were not disappointed. Piles of fluffy rice, contrasted with tangy, succulent prawns were heaped on a plate, and given to us to enjoy on the roadside. The taste of this amazing concoction is hard to replicate, however after many hours in the kitchen this is the closest I’ve manage to get, to capturing it. Bon Appetite!
