Pac, this one is very different in ingredients and flavours

Also this one takes sometime cooking, we were in the kitchen for a good hour or so

You make the chicken tikka from scratch and cook that under the grill and also the lovely, creamy butter sauce is made totally from scratch, and it is all a very different method from the other Butter Chicken we normally have

With this one, after you have made the butter sauce, you then put it through a blender and then through a sieve and the sauce looks like liquid gold

With us, we dont mind buying specific ingredients as we do a lot of Indian curries and so we love having the ingredients on hand whenever we need them

Nice. Every once in a while I go all out on a recipe, too. It's a nice feeling when you sit down to eat.

I've got the butter, the cream, the honey and the green chilies... That's a start

Thanks

I am going to slow roast a slab of pork belly for dinner. I have it marinating in a mixture of roasted peppercorns and fennel seeds, garlic, thyme and olive oil. I think it is going to take about 2 1/2 hours. Then crisp up the skin. Going to serve it with garlic gai lan and some kind of potato....
Skipped the greens and went with spinach salad...

Slow roasted pork belly... nice!
I've been meaning to order some pork belly. I'm going to try to make my own bacon. Maybe I'll get two now. That's a nice looking meal. That crust on the pork belly HAS to be good!

Thanks. It was good. But, I wasn't happy with the piece of porkbelly. It was pretty fatty, and very uneven in thickness. I bought a few pieces off of a local farmer a few months ago, they were all wrapped. This piece was folded in half so after it thawed and I unfolded it, it was very thin. I have three 2 lb slabs left. The first one I tried a couple of months ago was excellent. Very thick and lean. Hoepfully the other ones are better. I may end up slicing them up for Korean style or just fried up side pork.

I made the split pea soup, but never got around to the Andouille hash. I decided to make taco meat mixture and used half of that to make a tamale pie/casserole.

I'll make the hash tomorrow. The tamale pie came out great!
