We know what it's like - you clock in after a long week at work and all you want to do is pick up the phone, dial your local curry-chinese-pizza-thai-turkish takeaway and indulge in some naughty nibbles. RESIST! You can cook incredible dishes for a fraction of the price, triple the flavour and all in the time you're left waiting for the doorbell to ding.

The wonderful Dumpling Sisters join Food Tube to share their mouth-wateringly good chicken fried noodle recipe. Succulent chicken pieces cooked in a soy sauce, ginger and garlic gravy and stir fried with fresh crunchy vegetables and soft egg noodles. Delicious!

Poo's back and this time she's cooking classic Pad Thai. Fresh juicy prawns stir fried with tofu, crunchy veg and egg fried rice noodles. Serve with a wedge of lime, chilli powder and crushed peanuts - better than any takeaway and cheaper!

Free-runner extraordinaire Tim Shieff shares his favourite curry recipe based on traditional Indian spices, whole roasted butternut squash, chickpeas and spinach served on a bed of turmeric infused rice. If you've never tried a vegan curry before this is the one to make.

The lovely Maunika Gowardhan, an Indian chef and food writer, is over in the Drinks Tube corner to make that wonderfully creamy Indian drink - the lassi. The perfect accompaniment to a spicy curry, Maunika's mango and saffron lassi uses fresh mango, tinned mango pulp, crushed cardamom seeds, yoghurt, milk and a dash of saffron-infused water. Garnish with some crushed pistachio and a colourful straw!
