Gluten Free Lamingtons - How to Coeliac

If you’ve never had a lamington before, here's a quick description. They are an Australian/New Zealand chocolate or strawberry iced sponge cake covered in desiccated coconut, traditionally served as squares with cream and jam. 
 You can buy these anywhere in New Zealand, in packs of 8 at supermarkets, or massive ones full of cream found at bakeries. Some people prefer one flavour - my dad has a specific affiliation to the chocolate ones - although I would argue that the difference is minuscule.

This is the start of my journey into 'gluten freeing' the New Zealand bakery food that I grew up with.

Rajma-Red Kidney beans in spiced gravy - Shahla Hajiloo (cooked by Kortney Kwong Hing on AFFC)


Rajma also known as Rajma Masala are red kidney beans simmered in a blend of aromatic spices to create a creamy, thick spiced gravy.  It’s naturally allergy friendly; gluten free with dairy free and vegan options.

Rajma is a classic staple in many North Indian and Pakistani households ( similar to a dal) and one that I grew up eating. I now make it for my own family and it’s one of my kids most requested meals!

As you may well have guessed, Mexican food is my absolute fave!! And these quesadillas are so tasty!
