Best takeaway recipes

Seekh kebabs

These juicy lamb kebabs are fragrant and fiery, with coriander and a fair whack of chilli – perfect wrapped inside a soft naan and topped with pickled red onion salad, sliced cucumber and raita.


Vegan black bean burgers

With a full-on flavour and meaty texture, suitable for the grill, this fully loaded vegan burger is fakeaway perfection.


Buttermilk fried chicken

Soaking the chicken in buttermilk tenderises the meat and helps the crispy coating stick. A great DIY takeaway to make at home on the weekend.


Sweet and sour chicken

This takeaway classic might usually be deep-fried and packed with sugar, but our lighter take on a Friday-night favourite is just as satisfying, and ready in less than half an hour.


Chicken tikka burritos

Check out our quick and easy burrito recipe with tikka-marinated chicken. Serve this simple recipe with ready made rice, a simple homemade yogurt dip and warmed rotis.


Pork dumplings

Make your own boiled pork and chive dumplings in just 45 minutes. Soft and pillowy, they’re best served with soy sauce, chiu chow chilli oil and chopped chives.


Chip-shop bap

Our crispy fish burger with vibrant mint mushy peas and homemade tartare sauce may take a little effort, but it’s ready in just 30 minutes.


Crispy fried cabbage

A British Chinese takeaway classic, often called crispy seaweed, this dish is in fact made with dark green cabbage!


Chicken katsu curry

If you always order the katsu curry at Japanese restaurants, you’ll be surprised to learn how easy it is to make at home. Try our delicious chicken and pea version.


Lamb koftas with kale salad

So easy to put together, lamb koftas make the best weeknight supper. Try them with a super healthy Brussels sprouts and kale winter salad for a delicious low-carb dinner.


Prawn massaman curry

Massaman curry comes from southern Thailand and is not as fiery as green or red Thai curries. We love the fragrant flavours and the texture that the peanuts add.


Skinny fish and chips

Shallow frying the fish and baking the chips makes our skinny fish and chips lighter then the classic British takeaway. An easy, healthier way to enjoy a taste of the seaside!


Chicken sesame noodles

Forget the takeaway, this chicken noodle dish is super quick and healthier, too. The sesame seeds add a great crunch and flavour to the dish.


Cheeseburger

We like our burgers piled sky-high with ‘the works’ – that means EVERYTHING including our secret sauce (made from four very simple ingredients), sweet and sour onions, emmental cheese, gherkins, frilly lettuce, and more…


Hot and sour aubergine with sticky rice

Sticky rice with aubergines in a hot and sour sauce, made from very simple ingredients: red chilli, soy sauce, vinegar and a little sugar.


Quick pad thai

Pad thai is a classic spicy noodle dish and is very popular street food in Thailand. Recreate your own at home with our easy 15-minute recipe.


Pizza with sausage, broccoli and fennel

Ditch the takeaway. These pizzas without tomato sauce are the best. Make your own pizza dough, then top with sausage, mozzarella, fennel and broccoli.


Chicken tikka masala

Britain’s favourite dish is a hybrid Indian curry recipe born in the UK. Make sure your chicken gets nicely browned at the edges to add flavour.
