Posted on January 29th, 2008 by thenmozly in cooking

Cooking never been my passion. But somehow recently i realise, cooking has been passion rather than a torture;)Is it because i’m getting fedup of eating out many years or just tht following the saying that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach:)

  1. well, i certainly enjoyed it. Wonder when the next kurma curry is to be served? 🙂

  2. heheheh..soon if you help me out in the kitchen:)

  3. nice 😀

  4. You did good.

    Soak the babas kurma powder in water. You don’t want to throw dried powder into the pan, it will burn it. When you soak it, the powder should expand to twice it’s size, then put it in.

    To give the curry some body, grind in a blender, ginger, onions and garlic. Marinate the meat in this blend, then throw the whole thing into, pan after spices are cooked. Cook until the blend dissolves and meat is cooked.

    This way you can reduce coconut milk, or other highly saturated polyfatty acids. Better for your health.

  5. hi, well, i didnt enjoy cooking so much too but recently i have been more active in trying out new recipes…and am begining to enjoy doing it…i guess the more successful we are with what we do…it gets us trying more recipes…wonder if that makes any sense…enjoy…

  6. good gonna try it soon..heheheh

  7. Sounds nice. I will go for yogurt, not a fan of coconut milk.

    Miss my dads cookings, he doesn’t use these baba’s or alagappa’s powder, we(my bro’s) will be cycling to the one and only Mill Grinding shop in my town ( btw..still there) and grind the chillies and coriander. There are some other stuffs that he add to grind together, but can’t remember. 🙂 The taste…Hmmmm, really miss it.

    My wifey also makes wonderful Veg Kurma curry..LOL. 😀
