South African Style Curry at Queen Suzanna's HouseThursday, February 25, 2010
So right after attending the culinary tour and cooking class that I helped organized, I was invited by one of the participants (and friend) to enjoy some South African Style Indian Curry at her house. I had never had South African Style Indian Curry, so I was intrigued. The host, Suzanna, is of Indian decent (so she's lusciously brown) but she grew up in South Africa. Apparently, there is a large population of Indian people in South Africa and their curry is richer-quite buttery-, and heartier than their Indian counterparts. Here on the table there is cous cous; naan; a lamb, lentil, and potato curry; and a chicken curry.
Here we have a lamb, lentil, and potato curry. It was richly flavored and the meat was fall-off-the-bone tender.
But, I have to admit that the mango pickles made the meal for me. I LOVE MANGO PICKLES! They have a delicate texture like jaw-meat on yellowtail fish and the flavor is earthy yet piquant. I love the uniqueness of it.
Here is the cook of the hour. If she ever invites you to her house, but sure to go-I MEAN RUN. Oh, and by-the-way, have I mentioned that she is single? Only handsome guys that like to eat, can hold an adult conversation, and are able optimistic need apply. If you fit all of these qualities, send me an e-mail^^. (SORRY SUSANNA)
