I made the fresh pasta dough from Nigella Bites. My problem is when I have my dough ready it sticks to the machine when I'm rolling it. I use all-purpose flour and organic eggs, in the proportions suggested. Any suggestions, Please help!

Hello! I live in India. Brown sugar is available here, but I was not able to find light or dark brown sugar. Only golden brown sugar is available. Most of your recipes call for light or dark brown sugar. Is it OK to use whatever good quality brown sugar is available here? Please help!

Nigella uses tamarind in several of her recipes but under different names. Sometimes tamarind paste (sometimes specifically from a jar) is called for, at other times tamarind concentrate. Are the two mutually exchangable or is normal tamarind paste a lot milder? I can only get tamarind concentrate so how would I have to alter the quantities when only tamarind paste is called for? Thank you!

Can I use hazelnut oil instead of olive oil in the olive oil chocolate cake? Or possibly use part hazelnut oil, part olive oil? Thank you.

Hello there, I am planning on making Nigella's Slow Roasted Garlic And Lemon Chicken. If I were to add potatoes to the dish would I add these at the beginning of the roasting? Thank you.
