A good curry has little chille. It is all the other spices which make it a 'curry.'

never tried it

tried Indian food once or twice, never again

Growing up we had an indian guy who lived alone in a flat downstairs. He used to get bored so occasionally he'd cook and then bring us some. Bought a cooked egg once, my gosh did it stink :OMG :OMG .... 35yrs later I can still smell it. looking back know it was like one of those 1000yr eggs in chinese cuisine. No one was game enough to try it and we couldn't put it in the bin cause he shared the bin and mum was worried he'd find it (smell it) and get upset. Behind our block was some shrubland so I ended up throwing it over the back fence. :clap


:bgrin :bgrin :bgrin

Yep that's a good story.

you could.. if you wanted to. :bgrin But you won't.

seems chili lovers are mainly the more adventurous types in life. The 'risk takers'. People who won't even try chilli are extremely safety conscious. It has been looked at. :bgrin

Now I prefer THAI Curries . The BEST. I find Indian Curries too heavy, and I can't honestly say I like them in preference to thai and even Malaysian curries. Indonesia not so much BUT I have had some MAG RENDANGS, so thought I'd give it a go. WAS mighty tasty. BUT... I think my favourite ever curry is a Thai 'Jungle' Curry.
potein of your choice, it is the most flavoursome I have tried. Essentially from Northern Thailand.
I could eat it every day. :wub

actually, I do. I like the flavour of chilli, but i just can't eat it as it burns the crap out of mo tongue. It doesn't stop me trying it every now and then .

I do that with many foods I don't like. I find that tastes change over the years and food I once couldn't eat I now love. Take fish for example ... used to be a time I couldn't touch them, now I love fish. Same with wine.

I hate Indian curries, they're so pungent, too much cumin. Thai curries OTOH are much more light and a nuanced balanced with a bit of sweet and sour. Also love proper Laos and Khmer curries as they tend to be a little less fiery. Malaysian and Indonesian curries are also way too heavy and oily.

Worked Indian Restaurant.
The Chef would sneak food bits back out of the bin and put back into fry pan.
Dirty buggers wouldn't even share the 'Tip Jar' earnings with waitering staff.
I don't work there anymore - nor buy from there.

I revisited my Rendang for dinner tonight. It was so thick I had to pry it out of the container. I added too much water, so decided I'd double cook I, not just reheat it.. I added some Cinnamon Paprika and Cumin powder and let it simmer down.

Steamed a bit of spud and silverbeet and voila.. dinner.

It was delicious, BUT yeah a bit too heavy a curry for my taste.

I still say Thai Jungle Curry is my fave.

Sashimi tonight, kingfish and king salmon.

Salmon gravlax tomorrow with poached duck eggs, dry roasted tomatoes with pancetta–wrapped aparagus and big mushrooms joining the ’maters for the last 15 minutes. Have tuna dip as well.

Tomorrow for dinner: Thai fishcakes. Was about to order deep sea cod $35/Kg when I save knife jaw snapper fillets $24.95. If I don’t feel like making fishcakes the fillets can be pan fried I suppose. Got snake beans, cucumber, snake beans, lime, coriander and ginger. Pickled garlic and fish sauce etc in the pantry, egg, red curry paste in the fridge etc.

LOVE the fishcakes!

Oooohhhhhhh big thick TBone, cooked till still pink inside, fucking yum!

Italian butcher 2 doors down from my brewshop, he would cut a 2" thick TBone for me from the big end of the joint. Still dream of those steaks.

Got wings and drumsticks, they will go in the smoker in the next few days. Fruit wood, chicken marinated in sweet chili sauce and soy sauce, sprinkling chili flakes. Maybe some cumin seeds. Hmmm still have star anise I ground in the mortar and pestle, rub that on a few pieces. Just received 2 jars of Bayfield Apple Mustard, go good with all that!
