Pineapple curry

Sticking with the food theme, can I recommend Pineapple Curry? Chop, dice or otherwise mangle a fresh pineapple. Marinade in stuff (I used a bit of garam massala, some mustard and some turmeric). Mix 1/2 a cup of grated coconut with some water/coconut milk and blend with green chili. Heat oil, toss in mustard seeds and some red chili, then fry pineapple, add chili/coconut mix and finish with fresh coriander at the end. Beware! Too much chili and your eyes will fall out.

Serve with basmati rice.

Where are you going, with your fetlocks blowing?

Kate and I saw a tiny white horse this morning, in Battersea Park. Perhaps this is why we both found today slightly unsatisfying. When you see a tiny white horse trotting around at 8am, nothing else in the day can really match it.

Tonight I made tabbouleh. The recipe is very simple. Take 5 oz bulgar wheat. Add 1/4 pint boiling water. Stand for 30 minutes. Add 1/4 cucumber, diced. Some chopped tomato. 2 chopped spring onions, 2 tsp chopped fresh mint, 2 tsp likeiwse fresh and chopped parsley, lime juice, salt, pepper, olive oil.

Turned out very nice indeed.
