Curry!
« on: February 23, 2018, 11:16:53 PM »
 Went to our new favorite curry house last night and had Dill Mushrooms, Murg (Chicken) Lababdar and Lamb Buna Gosht with rice and a couple of naans... very nice and tasty!







Nom! Nom! Nom!

Made Garam Masala myself some weeks ago - still have a pot of it :-)
The Naan I made was enjoyed by all - except my wife. She was the only one thinking my Indian dishes were not that tasty. Bah... my 2 yrs old liked it, this counts.

What I was not able to do properly was the "bread". It is similar to the bread of the Turkish - except you create it with yoghurt. My favorite is butter chicken (chicken marinated in joghurt for 24 hours, then a while in the oven and finally you put this stuff (without the "water") into some tomato/spices-sauce). Yummy.

@Yue - I feel for you man, hope your situation improves soon!

@Derron - Yeah, the bread is hard to make at home without a proper tandoor. To me, Garam Masala is a just spice mix what was the recipe?

I like home made butter chicken, havent really found one in restaurants that I have really liked, most of them just taste like slightly spiced tomato soup.. I prefer Chicken Tikka Masala (and that depends on the recipe) and now Murg Lababdar (the red coloured dish in the top photo).

Oo, that looks nom nom ;D - Sooooo, when do I get an invite around for dinner? :P

Odd priority. I always go for food first and electric / oil second. If I can't afford the internet then out the door it goes. My priorities are feeding my family and dogs first before myself, no ifs, no buts. I'd never sacrifice food and heat over internet. Years ago I was in a situation where I had bugger all money and believe me, the internet and stuff were way down the list of priorities. I even remember being a sad git and raiding the piggy bank so I could treat myself to a couple of tins of beer. How sad is that?. We all have hard times stories but clearly you have a home, computer, internet and time to code a game and post on a forum, so things clearly aren't too bad are they?
Until the next time...

I only put that message on my network because I found out they're stealing my wifi. :D

yeah it's not total misery like he likes to portray it, some people in "rich" countries live / sleep outside and eat what is remaining in public trashes...

@ Garam Masala
I just have read what most people put into their Garam Masala..

cinnamon + clove + cumin + black pepper + coriander + cardamom
Cardamom was what I had to buy - and it was similar priced to "prepared Garam Masal mix" - where you know even less what they really put into ;-)

I also added a bit of pimento (like when cooking a stew).

all of these ingredients were grounded using mortar and a pestle. I would have added self-grown dried peppers (grounded then) but as wife does not enjoy sharp (especially now as she is pregnant) and my son is not allowed to eat sharp (while he would try :-)) - I had to provide an extra bowl of peppers at the end for some others taking part in the meal (including me ...I like chillies).


What all these dishes had in common: when cooking they smell rather good, but when they get cold the cumin smells stronger and stronger. Surprisingly you put into everything a big load of cinnamon - and it does not taste that "over spiced" ("only cinnamon") as if I mix it with sugar for rice pudding (son enjoys that ;)).

Round here you can't get away with that. Everything's digital these days. Even requesting for unemployment/welfare money counts on a person to have internet + computer, for you have to prove you were applying for jobs. It's been considered one of the basic needs and calculated in. (yup, I know it's weird)

There are areas around offering free internet to those who cannot afford.


You have the right for free information access - but you wont get newspapers for free. Still you can get access to them in public libraries.
But in "private" I understand your POV, internet is something I need daily - for information research, entertainment, work...

Kuala Lumpur, I was out there visiting relatives quite a few years back (as they worked there).  Eat out, visited the Towers and such.  Good place.  I guess across between India and Singapore?
