Chana Masala (on toast)

There are plenty of recipes available on internet for a perfect chana masala- dry or in a curry. All of them (or 99% of them) suggest to serve it with a rice, any kind of Indian bread or even potatoes. I’ve come up with a slightly different, new way of serving it. As I live in the UK, one of the most easy and popular dishes here is beans on toast. So…. why not to replace beans with chana and make chana on toast! Indian dish with a British twist ๐Ÿ™‚ Let’s try it!

Is my Catholic-Sikh Mixed Marriage Socially Legal?

As you know by now, I live in a mixed marriage that is โ€“ interracial and interfaith.
When I met my husband, it was obvious to me that there is no legal obstacle for us being together and getting married given that we lived in Great Britain.
Moreover, I was quite confident that there would not be any major religious difficulties from my side (I am Catholic) and from my husbandโ€™s side (he is Sikh). Of course, we were aware there might be some bumps on the way, but that eventually our religions would not interfere in our union.
The biggest issue for us was โ€“ the society. I donโ€™t mean โ€˜the societyโ€™ as the general public, but rather our own โ€“ small communities and the most important ones, our families. How will they react? What will they say? And the most important question- Will they agree to us getting married and being in mixed marriage?

Our Happy Multifaith Catholic Sikh Family

However, in our case there are few letters more than usual. He is Catholic. He is Sikh. He is Catholic-Sikh or Sikh-Catholic (whatever choice you prefer).
We are multicultural, multilingual, interracial and multireligious family.
