It’s COOK AND SHARE A POT OF CURRY DAY today! Have you taken part in this event?
As one who enjoys various kinds of curries, such as fish-head curry, chicken curry, and vegetables curry, how I can miss taking part in this event?
And here’s my yummy chicken curry today, cooked using chili paste from Prima (the best that I know), and fresh coconut milk squeezed from the grated coconut which I bought at the market this morning. Joining DS and I in this hearty meal today was my younger sister!
Curries, regardless of Indian, Chinese or Malay curries, are not only popular but also a love of many Singaporeans! It is an important part of the food culture in our multi-racial society. I learned how to make curry when I was still a school girl as I always had to help my late granny up in the kitchen. My late granny was a great cook!
Back then, in my little hometown, there was no readily available chilli paste, and I shall never forget all the “hardship” of making it by pounding the various types of ingredients such as chilli, belachan, small onions, garlic, yellow ginger etc using a pestle and mortar. Gone are those days and cooking curry has become so easy and convenient now with lots of choices of ready chili pastes. So, give it a try one of these days, if you have yet to cook one! It’s easy!
