Not sure you can get much more Australian than damper, especially if you serve it with a lamb stew. Originally it was a simple flour and water mix baked over a campfire, now recipes like this one have gone a step further using wholemeal flour, cinnamon and pumpkin. It still goes well with lamb though.
Almost back to school time after the long summer holidays here in Melbourne.
So I thought some old 1970s sandwich filling ideas might give you some new ideas for the kid’s lunches. Mum used to make the Mock Chicken Filling for our sandwiches and also for afternoon teas with her friends. I remember it as tasting quite nice.
This 1991 recipe published in the Checkout column of the Herald Sun is a bit of a mixture of the old and the new. Brown rice was only just starting to become popular around that time, but the old style curry powder, vegetables and sultanas mix is what curries looked like in most households then. Old fashioned maybe, but still a good vegetarian pie.
