Aubergine Lasagne by Jamie Oliver. It has the same vibe as a Greek moussaka, but uses pasta rather than potatoes in the layering, making it more of a lasagne bake. The fresh sheets you can buy in supermarkets are very good and well worth using.
I've always wanted to know how Indian and Thai chefs make tasty rice. This is a great way to liven up plain rice but feel free to take it a step further by adding turmeric, like my Indian friend Das. Or hot it up with a little chilli powder.
