Tandoori Lamb Sliders Mango and Passionfruit Cheesecake (Aldi)

Hello People, yes yes Hajra’s Kitchen is still alive and kicking. Lack of blogging and recipes is due to a number of personal reasons. Thanks for understanding ❤️

So recently the amazing Aldi contacted me and asked if I wanted to do a feature on their products. They very kindly sent me some vouchers to use in their store. I am a huge Aldi fan as I shop their regularly and I think their products are great value for money, the quality is brilliant and the fact they now do certain branded items its even better.

These are some of the lovely items I purchased today!

Anyways after racking my brain I thought as we are still in kind of a Summer I’d make a main…the Lamb Sliders and dessert was a mango & Passionfruit cheesecake and also added on a refreshing Passion fruit mocktail.

I’ve tried to take some step by step pics but any questions please feel free to message me.
