maybe some evil hindu nationalist attempt to corrupt the cuisine...

that's the case! BJP followers added cow pee to the dry aloo gobi, called it 'aloo gobi masala' making some people think it's a 'curry' :smile:

Nice dodge and almost kinda funny...yet understandably difficult to swallow...but what you gorged on tonight was a heapin' helpin' of "Crow and Bulpoo masala" or "curry" (whatever)...your choice!

 

Once you've had adequate time to fully digest it...do share how it tasted! :biggrin:

there is a reason why aloo gobi with gravy gets derogatory remarks. actually the dry aloo gobi isn't dry but soaked with ghee. it's the only dish which i like when containing a lot of ghee. the wet "masala" version does not contain that much ghee and is supposed to be "poor people's aloo gobi".

 

unlike you i have not been twice to India to collect info about Indian food. :smile: for more information check your private messages.

most aloo gobi recipes I've seen call for either ghee or a neutral cooking oil like safflower, etc...I usually use some oil with a hunk of the local unsalted butter and turns out OK...

 

did some split moong bean (local market) dahl last night and turned out a treat, with tomatoes, cardamon pods and whole cloves in addition to he usual cumin, tumeric, etc...gots to make some more chapattis tonight...

Brown rice "Jok" for brekkie. :coffee1:

 

Apologies in advance if doesn't fit someone's precise definition of "jok".

(Just a bit of "joke"!) :vampire:

Spicy sour Thai curry (geng som) and kale (pad pak kana) w/tofu last night. Vegan of course :tongue:, served with brown rice.

Looks delicious and they are one of my favourite thai dishes. Gaeng Som with Shrimps and Kana with crispy pork. But vegetarian is also fine

Was it this one?

where'd ye find that at makro? never seen any prepared indian curry paste at our makro...was just up there yesterday and bought 4000baht worth of canned beans, artichoke hearts,  olives and various oils and vinegars...the time is right for aloo gobi with garbanzos and bean salad with fresh steamed long beans and canned chick peas and red kidneys...with a special bean salad vinaigrette...

 

I've got all the ingredients to make my own tikka masala and most masalas for chicken that ye can get at makro...in saudi I'd just get a packet of prepared masala powder and mix with fresh yogurt then toss in the chicken breast and marinate for a few hours...chicken curry and steamed veg with soy sauce most days for lunch at work...mighty fine, had the same thing every day fer lunch and never got tired of it...always plenty of everything available at most supermarkets in saudi; an entire aisle with dried pulses and spices and always a magnificent fresh fruit and veg section...canned beans of every type...in house bakery with fresh arabic bread, freshly prepared hummous and baba ganoush, excellent bulk sheeps milk cheese at $3 per kilo...

 

oh, boo hoo...
