Thank you to everyone who voted for me in round 1 of the Foodbuzz Food Blogger Competition! I made it through to round 2!! :D
The title of this round is The Classics: How well can you tackle a classic dish from another culture? We're bypassing the French and Italian standards in favor of more challenging cuisines.
Since we are a good old fashioned comfort food loving family I knew this one was going to appeal on many levels, I get to try something I dont normally do and the boys get to see ingredients that ive never used before, we even bought a chilli plant (with ready to use chillies!!) to grow on the windowsill!We all really enjoyed the taste and appeal of trying something other than the 'normal' quick fix sauces from a jar! Heck if we ever have curry a Korma is about as wild as we get- we dont do spicy!
Another first for me....I have never de-headed prawns before andit was an experience lets put it that way, not one I would rule out doing again. They had so much more flavour bought straight from a fishmongers than in a prepacked carton from a supermarket! We left the tails on and it was great to see the kids not only enjoying the food but holding the prawns in their hands to get the last little bits from the tails. Theres something comforting and rustic about being able to eat with your hands - yes, even if it is a curry!Voting starts tomorrow for round 2 so I am including step by step pictures and receipe in tomorrows post of how this meal was made as week 38 of our 52 week challenge :)
Please let me know if you take part and remember to share pictures too - enjoy xxx
