I have just added 4 images to my “Cooking in confinement” gallery. We are not
truly confined anymore (except for the midnight-6 a.m. curfew), but still.
Yesterday was my daughter’s birthday, and since she had a class at the
university until 8:45 p.m., she opted to have a nice dinner at home and invite
a few friends (staying below the 10-person limit we have). And she chose curry.
So I took the day off and slaved away in the kitchen for 4-5 hours (and that
does not include making the sauce, which I did on Saturday), but her joy and
the pleasure of everyone in enjoying the food was worth it. I made several
dishes; here are four of them.
A salad of onions, cucumbers and tomato, with mint sauce and a dash of chilli:
Prawn curry (peeling 1.2 kg of these things is slimy and time consuming, but
damn they taste good):
And a vegetable curry. The recipe calls for chick peas and potatoes, but I also
There was also tarka dal, but that is not photogenic, so I did not even try to
take pictures of it (it looks like baby puke but tastes delicious).
