The making of a Curry….


When my husband, Michael, was working in Glasgow in December he found a night to attend a cooking class.  Since Indian Curry is a specialty in the UK, he expected to come back with great ideas for cooking Curry…..he was not disappointed.

Last weekend he ran to a local specialty market and came home with all of the ingredients, including Cardamom seeds, Cumin seeds, Star Anise, Garam Masala, Ginger, peppers, Stick Cinnamon and lots of goodies…..

First step was to grind all of the spices using the Granite Mortar and Pestle that we brought back from Australia……DSC07932

Aren’t these beautiful…..and aromatic…..

Yes, that does make me hungry!!
Great idea to take the class, too.
So does this mean curry for dinner every night for the next week or so?
What is the next challenge for Michael?

I certainly looks tasty. I love curries, although of the vegetarian kind.
