Sarah and Andy have another ten days before they return from their epic trip to India. They are currently staying at some retreat on the edge of the Himalayas; they are going on a tiger safari this evening. They appear to be having a wonderful time and Indian food has clearly been a highlight for them as it suits their vegan diet.
Back in Sydney, Paul and I have been experimenting with vegan cooking to expand our limited repertoire of recipes. Thug Kitchen, a book I found in Sarah’s bookcase, is written in a somewhat contrived expletive-ridden language but it does contain many interesting recipes and the writers do manage to convey an energy and passion for cooking. So last night I tried out the mango curry.
My verdict: It's a fairly standard vegetable curry but the mango and lime juice that is added just before serving gives it a fresh citrussy flavour that truly raises its game. I reckon I can give those Indian curries a run for their money.
