    Little India

    As an Asian resident one of my favourite places is Little India in Singapore. It is packed with diasporic Indians, many of whom run some wonderful restaurants. You can walk the streets and lanes, and take your choice of many joints, all quite cheap by Singapore standards, the...

    Cheating On Tikka Masala Chicken

    Curry & Bread Combo

    I eat rice every day. Living in Asia it's the done thing. But I much prefer to eat my curry with a bread. Give me a good paratha, roti, puri, with a rich thick meat gravy curry and I am in eater's heaven. It's so cultural too. In the big beer bars in Little India, Singapore, for...

    Bombay (restaurant)

    The best mutton marsala I have ever eaten comes out of the Bombay restaurant in downtown Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), Vietnam. (Easy to see I have not yet set foot on the subcontinent, isn't it? Never mind, Indian eateries the world over are run by diasporics, and are universally...

    Cumin Seeds, My Special Number

    For me, one of the sheer delights of simple Indian curry recipes is/are cumin seeds. In 2008 I bought a 2 kilo pack in Little India, and now 3 years later am just about to run out. No week goes by I don't use them. That was fun to buy in bulk, for in Australia where i grew up...

    Mutton Marsala

    I like most curries, but if I had to single out one it would be mutton marsala. Or should I say more correctly, one type, for mutton marsala is not one curry, but a type. There are as many marsalas as there are curry cooks. Each has their own special recipe, ever so slightly...

    You Have Got to Try Penzy's Spices

    I Could Eat It On Everything !!

    I love Curry, and have used it in chicken and seafood dishes. I especially love it in rice dishes ! So far, I've only used the gold / or yellow as some may see it, but I want to start using different ones, for I'm sure those flavors are outstanding !!

    Chicago!

    My favorite place to get curry is a Thai place in Chicago, on Clark St. called Singha. Its incredible. I get the chicken curry, absolutely incredible. Its too bad, but I seem to always eat it so damn fast, I fill up too fast, and I can never eat enough of it!

    Make All My Own

    I make all my own curry from scratch. I do not use pastes or sauces as i prefer to make my own. It can be time consuming especially when making the base but it is worth the effort. My favourite curry that I make is lamb bhuna, though I do enjoy tandoori meals as well.
