  • 85g butter



    Butter is a dairy product made from separating whole milk or cream into fat and…

  • 1 tbsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp black mustard seed
  • 1 large celeriac



    The unsung hero of the vegetable world, knobbly, odd-shaped celeriac has a subtle, celery-like…


  1. Heat the oven to fan 190C/conventional 210C/gas 7. Heat the butter in a small pan, add the curry powder and black mustard seeds then cook for 2-3 minutes until fragrant and bubbling. Peel and dice the celeriac and tip into a roasting tray. Pour over the curried butter, season with salt and pepper and toss together. Roast for 40-50 minutes, shaking the tray every so often, until the celeriac is golden and has taken on the colour of the curry powder.

Love this quick and easy recipe. Did not find that it was necessary to peel the celeriac, but just cut off most of the stringy roots. Also works fine as a saute, and since I didn't have black mustard seed used turmeric, curry, oil, salt & pepper. While cooking also added a bit of apple cider vinegar and honey. I think the people who didn't like this recipe were expecting the curry to mask the taste of celery but it doesn't, they blend together which may be a little startling at first.

Just wanted to counter the bad reviews on this recipe. I made it tonight and my boyf and I really liked it. I recommend cooking until they're well browned and crispy. And served with some nice chutney and pickle. Mmmm

I will eat almost anything within reason but I have to draw the line with this, probably the worst thing I have EVER eaten in my life and I have eaten on the road all over the road - Raw Roadkill is one notch up from this !! Believe me DO NOT go there

I have made this recipe more than once and I get compliments for it. It is a lovely recipe and the flavors go well together maybe there is a difference in curry powders?

I had the misfortune of making this recipe last night. It was absolutely minging. I love celeriac normally. Its why I chose to make this. It was without doubt one of the worst things I have ever made. Never again. Celeriac and curry is such a baaaaaaaaad combination. The taste is just wrong.
