After a recent visit to Vanilla Restaurant in Newcastle (review to follow), we thought we would try to recreate one of the dishes we had on our visit. Vanilla offer a great range of dishes but it was their duck and chorizo scotch egg with curry risotto that got our mouth watering. The dish was amazing; so impressed were we that we thought we’d try to make our own version of the dish. This dish can be the perfect starter to a 3 course meal for the family or a filling lunch or dinner for you to enjoy any day of the week. The pressure points in this dish are getting your egg boiled and deep fried perfectly and also ensuring that your risotto has the right texture. Let’s begin.
