As a family we are getting mighty addicted to curries. Makes it hard when one of the eating members of the family is a toddler.
Jamie loves his vindaloo... dont' know if he really loves it, or loves the idea of it. I made one from a supermarket vindaloo paste and was told it wasn't right. So I suggested he throw it out, oh the flavour is right, just not hot enough! Surely the flavour is more important and the pain of excess heat is not necessary.
Mark and I are loving butter chicken, had it from a jar tonight and in a word - yuck.
Tonight's vindaloo was made from scratch, I used the mortar and pestle for the first time, he said the heat was "just about right", the flavour was right but the colour wasn't the same as in the shop. One day I'll get it right.
Must attempt the butter chicken from scratch next.
Tomorrow I'm making Margaret Fulton's Meatloaf, which we had at mum's house and it was super delicious.
