Good grief cp - are you two okay?? ;)

 

Dinner last night was at Osteria Morini near Nats Park.  We had sopressata, smoked trout, and gorgonzola dolce for the antipasti.  I had the pappardelle with duck ragu.  And we had a bottle (or 2) of Montepulciano di Conero 'Piancarda' | Garofoli 2014.

 

I can't possibly have a dry anything at the moment because it's my birthday month!!  I will be truly old later this week, so I'm gonna live it up.  Because...why not!:drinks:

Tip top Esther thanks.

We had a week off last week and we ate and drank and smoked well into the evening, every evening, and you can only get enough of a good thing before the word " normal" comes into the equation. Don't worry my diva friend "normal" service will be resumed Friday :D

Friday evening and it's spicy !!

A Beef Rendang. This classic dish is so fantastic I count it as my all time favourite curry. This is the Malaysian version as opposed to Indonesian.

First make a paste:

Fresh Coconut is grated and dry fried until browned. With this make a paste with Kashmiri chillies (dried) garlic,coriander seeds,cumin seeds,onions,fresh ginger and mild red chillies (fresh), water

Fry stewing beef and add the paste, coconut milk,Kaffir lime leaves,cinnamon sticks and fresh lemon grass. When boiling add tamarind water and cook for 2 1/2 hours.When nearly ready stir. This will thicken the curry

When almost done add palm sugar and serve with rice but I will have Roti. I sometimes do a cucumber salad but not this time

This is a hot,spicy truly wonderful dish which bursts with flavour.

Some vanilla Ice cream and berries to sooth the taste buds for afters

Wines and green to round off.

Tamarind is easily available in the Chinese Supermarket. In block form where you mix with hot water and strain the seeds out or ready bottled. It's a vital ingredient in South Indian curries where a tart flavour is needed. The Rendang was historic !
