Indian spiced ribs with coronation slaw
Dean Edwards has a Friday night take-away idea to inspire you this weekend. He's combined two of his favourite take-away foods - Indian and Deep South America to bring us Indian Spiced Ribs!
Dean says it's perfect finger food for sharing - like a lot of American take-aways, you dig in and eat with your hands - have lots of napkins at the ready!
2 racks of pork ribs
2 tbs soft brown sugar1 tsp cinnamon1 tbs garlic powder1 tbs ground black pepper1 tsp salt1 tbs ground garam masala
Indian BBQ sauce:
1 onion, finely diced3 cloves garlic, crushedThumb sized piece ginger, grated200ml tomato ketchup4 tbs cider vinegar2 tbs dark brown sugar2 tbs soy sauce1 tbs garam masala

Cover tightly with foil and cook in a pre heated oven set at 160c / gas mark 3 for 2 ½ hours
Fry the onion in a little oil for 5 minutes over a medium heat, then add the garlic and ginger
Continue cooking for a minute or two, stir in tomato ketchup, vinegar, sugar, soy sauce and garam masala
Cook for a further 3-4 minutes until thickened. If you prefer a smoother finish to your sauce give it a blitz in a mini blender.
Remove the foil from the ribs then brush on the BBQ sauce, return to the oven and raise the temperature to 200c / gas mark 6 cook for a further 20 minutes
For the coleslaw: Combine the cabbage, onion, carrot and raisins in a bowl and mix
