#blogjune Day 5: In which curry is made and consumed in large quantities

My sister had a GF visiting who had heard about our curry feast and wanted to experience them.  She is vegetarian so Indian food is an easy option.  I did have to cater to my dedicated carnivore husband though, so I made:
  • Vindaloo
  • Tamarind fish
  • Batata Nu shak (potatoes in a spicy sauce - I also included chickpeas in it)
  • Bhindi (okra or lady's fingers) with a garlic/seasame seed/coconut/poppy seed coating
  • Saag paneer
  • Mango lassi
  • Semolina firni

curry feast

My sister made:
  • Aloo ghobi
  • rice
  • A dahl from Uttar Pradesh

Dad made:
  • pooris

and P bought indian sweets from the sweet shop.


While we were at Mum & Dad's, Mr7 got out the didgeridoo to play with. He used to be terrified of it, but now he's embraced his Australian heritage. (My parents are originally from NSW, Australia).


  1. Yummo! It all looks and sounds amazing. Think I'll make Dahl and Samosas this week!

  2. I LOVE Indian curry, I am making butter chicken at the moment, the install pour from a jar type ;p

  3. what an amazing feast....your dad's pooris look so yummy. Can you share the Batata Nu Shak recipe please. Aww at Mr7 embracing his heritage. Mike wondered what I was listening to when I played that clip.

  4. Yummy!! Thank you for the inspiration, it's been way too long since we last cooked up an Indian feast :)

    I have a great recipe for gulab jamun - maybe I should post it during #blogjune ...
