    My addiction...

    Freaking Indian food. My coworkers and I have been planning on getting Indian food since Tuesday. Literally, this morning I opened my eyes and my very first thought was how much I couldn't wait until noon came around to go mow down on some naan and chikki tikki. And those fried vegetable dumplings. OOh, and naav rattan. And the spinach stuff with cheese chunks. I'm not going to be able to wait for noon.

    I sympathize with you. Indian food is my favorite. So much that I've had to learn how to cook it just to get it often enough.

    (the "cheese chunks" are called Paneer. I'm not a big fan of them- they're too much like tofu, which I don't like)

    Italian food is primo. Greek food is amongst my favoirtes as well! Japanese cuisine really is rather good. I like certain types of Chinese and Mexican that are very spicy. Indian food is dynamite as well. I also like to indulge in Middle Eastern delights.

    I love German and Polish cooking especially in the winter months when I like to pack it in! Brats and Kilbasi yummmm!!! Some of the Carribean foods are delightful as well.

    Actually I just plain like food! I am addicted to it all if it is well done. Snails! How about some snail drowing in garlic butter on Fresh peasants bread. Oh yoummmmeeeee..............

    This is just too good to pass up. I posted this in General Cycling but I guess it would be better appreciated here.

    It was inspired by the Addicted to Curry manga and originally posted in the forums at Anime Source. This recipe is actually more of a guideline since when I cook I use intuition over a strict recipe. I've tried many versions with different meats and veggies, served on different flavors of rice and pasta and never been disappointed (my favorite is soba noodles though). So here it is:

    Tex's Addicted to Curry

    1 lbs. of pork stew meat (should work with beef, lamb, seafood, chicken etc.)
    2 bell peppers cut in strips(I used a yellow and a green one for color red also works)
    1 medium yellow onion cut length wise into strips(I used one of the sweet varieties)
    1 small can shataki mushrooms, drained (reg. mushrooms okay, I had to change spelling to make it past censors)
    1 small can of pineapple chunks in own juice (I sometimes use canned tropical fruit in juice too, don't use syrup)
    3 Tblspns. of butter
    A note on veggies: I picked vegetables that looked good at the store there is some flexability here to suit your tastes. I used two zuccini squashes, a hand full of bean sprouts and a hand full of snow peas. I could have gone with carrots, sweet potatoes, or what ever. The only thing to remember is the denser the vegetable the sooner you have to put it in the pan so it cooks completely, i.e. heavy root veggies go in first, and leafy greens go in last. I've used frozen and canned veggies too.
    1 can of coconut milk (use the Thai kind which is thick and creamy it will melt when heated)
    1 package of curry roux (I used the mild kind because of my wife, but if you like it spicy then go for it. The kind I used came in a solid chunk that was broken up and spread out in the pot I think the brand name is Golden Pagoda.)

    Marinade (optional) Since I was using pork stew meat instead of more easily identified tender cuts like pork loin I used a mainade to make sure the meat would be tender and to add flavor. You can use anything like soy sauce or terriyaki sauce or cooking wine or sake. I used a about a half cup of coconut flavored rum with a few tspns of Kikoman roasted garlic teriyaki. Tender cuts of meat and most seafoods don't really need a mainade.

    In a large fry pan or wok (I used a wok) place butter on medium heat. When melted and wok is hot add meat. when the meat has started browning on the outside add onion and bell pepper. Cook until onion becomes semi-transparent and bell pepper brightens in color (meat should be a bit more done as well so make sure you keep stirring the ingredients around so they all get even heat). When the ingredients in your wok (or large fry pan) get to that stage then add your veggies by type with heavy veggies first giving them more time to cook and leafy veggies last as the ones before have had time to cook (I added zuccini first then snow peas and then bean sprouts). After the last of the veggies are added add mushrooms then add pineapple with the juice (again use pineapple packed in own juice not syrup), Then add coconut milk stirring it in until contents of pan are well coated and coconut milk is liquified. Add Curry and stir until melted into the mixture and coating everything. Keep stirring allowing everything to cook fully and meld flavors. When done remove from heat and serve over steamed rice.

    Well that's it. I hope it wasn't too confusing and I tried to put in some tips for you non-cooking folks because this is really easy to make and really delicious. It is the first time I tried to make a mild curry and I wasn't disappointed. It had a great curry flavor even with out the spicy heat that is usually a part of curry. If you have trouble understanding this recipe ask me and I'll try to clairify it for you. This is one of those recipes that looks hard and exotic but is really easy and if it seems a little weird that's just my cooking style, it really tastes great.

    One of the better things about this recipe also is that the most exotic stuff that would seem hard to find I found really easy at regular supermarkets.

    +1000!

    Me too!!!


    I'm heading to Toronto in about an hour - and tonite's meal will most likely be curry - of which I goad them into taking what is already hot - to the next level.

    hehe, wonder if a little $$ bribe would help to an even higher state of hot.

    I don't think I've had Indian before maybe I should try it.

    Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.

    if it doesn't burn as much, if not more, on the way out as it did on the way in, then it's not spicy enough.

    You'd LOVE my Chili then

    It's referred to as "Ice Cream Chili". The Chili is followed up the next day with Ice Cream, and it ain't for eating that you use the ice cream

    We live very close to the area where many of the Indian restauraunts and shops are in Richardson. Kebab and Curry is a local eatery that always wins awards and get good reviews for it's food. They season to order. One night as we were eating, a gentleman very rudely sent his food back, saying they did not make it spicy enough.

    Not sure what atomic spices the cook added, but upon receiving his food back, the man began to eat, turned bright red and began to sweat profusely. He ate his food and drank quite a bit of water, and I do not recall hearing him say another word about spicyness.

    I bet his burned a bit on the way out. just saying.

    We have a surprisingly decent selection, as good as most places in the country I've been, but they refuse to make it spicy enough for me. I think that's because Hoosiers don't know what to make of spices besides those found in ranch dressing.

    A Thai place I used to order from had spicy beef with basil (my favorite). I'd ask them to make it as hot as possible and the receipt would have a note on it - suicidal
