Watching Masterchef and pressure test is a butter chicken with roti.........I want it now!

butter chicken is a bit bland though.....I like a nice hot chicken madras......which reminds me I need a trip back to Wigram street nr Harris Park soon as not been for a while.

Apparently this recipe is from the top Indian chef in Melbourne with lots of flavour.  Better than a slap in the face with a wet fish

I haven't been to Harris park yet.  Gotta check that out!

If you're ever down the South Coast at Bateman's Bay then try Kohlis. Better than any Indian I've had in Sydney but admittedly I haven't tried any of the Harris Park places yet.

Little India (Wigram Street) is well worth a wander up and down....used to go on a Sunday afternoon but have not been for ages.

Spoiler alert 

It's still good.

Best Indian i have had in Little India outside of Bradistan (Bradford, Yorkshire). And some awesome vegie options, even i pick a vegie option down there sometimes......well when i say pick a vegie option what i really mean is a vegie side dish to go with the half a lamb i consume.

Did you know the most Indian takeaways and restaurants were actually opened by people from Pakistan. That is in the UK, not sure if the same here.

Is that true or is that because peoole just called them all Pakis? :lol:

 

or maybe they just learned the lesson of babu bhatt :lol:

 

I teach a whole bunch of kids who are Punjabi, some from Pakistan but most India. Then there's all the other indian language groups. I'd be surprised if most indian restaurants werent indian here, but, it's rare you see the regional differences reflected all the same.

BTW I earned some serious cred last time i went to Harris park because I got spotted by a student. :lol:

The first time an Indian curry was ever sold in Britain was in 1773 at a restaurant known as the Coffee House in London. Slowly Indian cuisine became well known in London and rest of Britain.  The owners of the various restaurants were not necessarily Indians but people mostly from Pakistan.  When Bangladesh got its independence in 1971, more Bangladeshis began owning Indian restaurants

I would say that the majority if not all Indian restaurants in Middlesbrough were run by people from either Pakistan or Bangladesh.

Great sketch that one

Loved Goodness Gracious me. Top comedy in its day. 

My favourite sketch was the Six Million rupee man. Due to such a lousy exchange rate it turned out his super powers were not that great. If i find it on youtube I'll post it in off topic thread

Made homemade chicken nuggets, not too bad for a first effort. Lesson learnt though, don't use cheap shiity breadcrumbs!!! :nono: 

added some grated Parmesan to the crumbs , helped flavour wise 

might try Panko crumbs next time or better quality b/crumbs!!!

oh yeah, enjoy with a glass or 5 of good old goon!!!   :drinks:

You can always add a few dried spices to the bread crumbs....improves the taste.

Making Nasi Goreng tonight, Malaysian rice dish with fried eggs on top....very nice.

Just finished making a peanut butter slice with the lad, bit like a caramel slice that has choc on top and a biscuit base bit with peanut butter in the middle.....more ******* peanut butter around his face than ended up in the tin :rolleyes:

Tonight for dinner I had-

1 ice fruit pop - tropical flavored

x2 ready made custard sachet things with the nozzle at the top

x2 Jelly cups

1 pot of wicked rice pudding with raspberry coulis  

Squeezed the custard in my mouth whilst spooning in some jelly at the same time. (much to the disgust of the wife and jealousy of the lad)...beingsickissometimesnotallthatbadtastic :)
