Ask someone that heard my solo at Dead Horse, if that thing weren't dead by my arrival I think I confirmed its death that evening.

I have a costume all planned out in my mind but Denise will have nothing to do with it. Shd is afraid it will get our Mutant membership revoked Hey I just figured out the costume would work way betterer if I too used a kimono.

Once I get Denise on board I will seek kimono permission from the grand poobah potentate.
I survived!

They were celebraring Navratri - a 9 day Hindu Holiday for lack of the correct word. You should see the pics. So amazing - large groups dancing in these gorgeous gowns.
Where I do the dirty deed (aka that four letter word), there is a very large presence of folks from India. We generally celebrate at least one if not more of the various holidays celebrated there. This month is Diwali - festival of lights - which we'll be celebrating towards the end of the month as a group.

There's a lot of interesting things in their culture, most notably their weddings! They last for a week usually, sometimes with attendance reaching over 20,000 people! Not all at once but over the course of that celebration they show up.

Mutants compete? Say it isn't so. I can't believe one Mutant would try to outdo another.

I often wondered where you gained your passion for Asian (mostly non-Chinese) foods. I have to admit that I have not been exposed to the cuisine.

I like General Tso's spicy chicken. Would that make me a candidate for Indian foods? I don't like HOT if it's just made hot to be hot. I cherish flavors and hints of flavors.

One of my best Indian style dinners was when I went with some friends (all Indian) and I said, here's what I can handle and they ordered lots of food compatible with not being too hot. And when you have Indian food, it's mostly shared with everyone at the table so it's like a big smorgasbord.

Here in Port we have three really good restaurants that specialize in South East Asian and all three will spice their hot food to your tastes. It doesn't hurt to ask if they will do customer spicing requests.
Last winter I found that I actually like "Real" Mexican food as opposed to the "Mexican" chains we had tried in our travels. I have to thank Di and Larry for suggesting the place in Casa Grande where we had supper the day we met. Mi Amigo Ricardo was the place I believe and that was the first of many that month.

Steve - I have to say I owe much of my foodie adventuring to my dad. He grew up in LA as did l until I was 10. He knew several Indian engineers and they shared with us. His time in the Navy in Japan, Hawaii and Korea all added to his palate and was shared largely with me. My mom and sister weren't so adventurous. Then my time in the AF although stateside - I met many folks from all around the world.

Every Indian restaurant I have visited asks how hot you would like it. I have found that medium is about right for me. It keeps the flavors in front with heat as a little more than a hint.

These are the ingredients for Chicken Biryani - (Chicken and Rice)

Ingredients
250-300gms Chicken with or without Bones
2 cup Basmati Rice (or) Seeraga Samba Rice soaked in water for 20 mins
3 medium sized onions finely chopped
3 tomatoes finely chopped
2 green chilies slit at the end
2 tbsp ginger-garlic paste
1 cup mint leaves
cup chopped coriander leaves
tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp red chili powder
tsp coriander powder (or) chicken masala powder optional
1 cup whisked curd / yogurt
salt to taste
4 tbsp cooking oil
3 cloves
cinnamon stick
2-3 bay leaf
1 star anise
2 green cardamom
1 tsp lemon juice

Look at all those "flavors". You wouldn't want to kill all that with heat.

And then there's my favorite Korma... lamb, chicken, vegetable, shrimp... but the sauce is amazing.

INDIAN CHICKEN KORMA
Creamy, spiced Chicken Korma is the stuff dreams are made of. Loosen up those pants and make this delectable Indian dish at home!

For the Chicken Marinade

3 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons garam masala
2 teaspoons curry powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

For the Sauce
2 white onions, peeled and cut into quarters
6 cloves garlic, peeled
4 teaspoons curry powder
2 teaspoons turmeric
2 teaspoons garam masala
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground coriander seed
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
3 large tomatoes, diced small
1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger root
1/2 cup ground almonds
1 cup unsweetened canned coconut milk
1 1/2 cups plain low-fat yogurt
1/2 a small red chili, de-seeded and minced (dried or fresh)
1 tablespoon brown sugar (packed)

It is not light and healthy but it is awesome. And again - you don't want to kill all those flavors with heat. Medium is right for me again.

And of course - garlic naan.

Your descriptions are wonderful. Some of the ingredients have never passed my lips but being a lover of GOOD food, I am now ready to give this cuisine a try. Medium hot to slightly hot is probably my style. When I try some Indian food, I will report back to you.

I have noticed that birds in AZ can run faster than a speeding bullet. If only they could talk... oh, oh, hot, hot, ouch, oh.

While I LOVE chinese food, Thai is my go to favorite... indian is also pretty good...
i just wish I knew more... other than chinese, my oldest son was responsible for most of my Thai and Indian food experiences.....
And like Steve said, it can be spiced down, although Larry says the curry in England is much spicier than anything over here...





Diane toftSFM#64....... (The Original Fast Talking Sliding Finger Mutant) and is retired, duh!

That's because the curry in The UK is usually made by those that immigrate from India. I will say it was good there.

I love most foods that have lots of spices and flavors to them 😊. We have lived in a lot of different countries which gave us the chance to travel to others - me even when I was growing up.
