in the Kitchen…

Today I am making an Indian birthday dinner for 27 people – but thankfully I am not working on my own. The work began last night (grinding spices and marinating chicken) and has taken most of this morning. Lamb curry and Chicken Tikka Masala will be the main dishes which is interesting since I have been a vegetarian for 20 years. I am not abandoning my vegetarianism but I will be tasting the sauces.

The whole house smells of exotic spices and so do I but we have reached a tipping point and the meal is coming along nicely. Now its time for a short break to buy the last provisions and, hopefully, grab a latte before the final stretch. Finish the main dishes and then organise the popadoms, naan, raita & chutneys.

Mmm, suddenly I have a craving for sushi 🙂
